When you're in prison, don't turn the other way
Keep your back against the wall
When you're in prison, don't turn the other way
Do not bend at all

Oh don't pick up the soap, pick up the soap
It's bad for you

Oh don't pick up the soap, pick up the soap
Someone will be waiting there for you

When you're in prison be sure to stay awake
Always lie upon your back

When you're in prison be sure to stay awake
Keep you from attack

Oh don't be no one's bitch, be no one's bitch
It's bad for you

Oh don't be no one's bitch, be no one's bitch
They won't help you make it through.

When you're in prison, don't turn the other way
Follow what I say to do.

When you're in prison, don't turn the other way
You can make it through
You can make it through
You can make it through

    General CommentThe meaning of this song is so obvious. It's about taking precautions while you're in prison so you don't get raped

    General CommentThis would be a perfect song to start a Fallout game with.

    It's a take on all those old '50's songs about moral issues, such as good hygiene and respecting your parents.

    A very funny take.

    General Commenta piss-funny song, but the ending was a bit weak. quite like the rest of the album. im not a big fan of splinter. smash, ixnay on the hombre and americana are my faves. and ignition wasnt half bad either. things only went downhill after conspiracy of one. i think its cos they changed producer. oh well.

    General Commentsleepyfrog - You been listening to too many Britney Spears albums or something? The producer has SFA to do with the music or the songs themselves on the album. They take care of how the music comes together, how the production itself sounds. Regardless of what you think of their latest music, I'd have to say that their last few albums have definately sounded pretty damn good.

    Other examples of what I'm talking about are Foo Fighters - one by one, and Metallica - St Anger. I loved one by one, but the production of the album was pretty poor. And aside from St Anger sucking anyway, the production of the album itself was even worse than the songs it destroyed. You'd think a band as rich and experienced as Metallica would know a shitty job when they heard it.

    But anyway, yeah. Production wise, the albums have definately gone uphill since ixnay on the hombre.
