about

This is about the guilty pleasure of watching the reality TV show "Lockdown" whenever traveling/staying in hotel rooms! Co-written by Jon and James. From Wikipedia: "Lockdown" plunges viewers headfirst into life in the "big house," the gritty underworld of America's maximum-security prisons, where gangs are prevalent, predators stalk their next prey and inmates are armed with deadly weapons.

lyrics

Hotel room, small town bar
No room service just candy bars
No pay channels, TV's on
Hotel cable showing "Lockdown"

Spending hard time on the inside
From my queen size. . . .
Spending hard time on the inside
From behind my guilty eyes

Whiskey while I'm on death watch
Just Old Crow not blended scotch
It's a pleasure, a guilty one
Watching how I hope I don't end up

Spending hard time on the inside
From my queen size. . . .
Spending hard time on the inside
From behind my guilty eyes

Solitary for both of us
But I get choices so I'll skip the pushups!

Blood stained sheets just leave 'em be
Lock me in and swallow the key
No pay channels, TV's on
Hotel cable showing "Lockdown", showing "Lockdown"

Spending hard time on the inside
From my queen size. . . .
Spending hard time on the inside
From behind my guilty eyes
