Send him out to Hudson Bay
She won a law what a mess, on a horror day
Bringing black a matter

Sent for long, you're tried for rape
In a win beyond my eyes
Summer holiday
You're winding right back

Far beyond the time to date
This crime intent you don't want
Black on time again
Bringing black down common

Seen denied your love today
It's empty gone are the waves
On your back again
You bring back home

Rosanna, in arrest room on my own

    Song MeaningI just read in an interview what this song is about:

    "Arrest Room is based on a story Tim our singer saw where a guy was jailed for rape for 20 years or so and was proved to be innocent the whole time. He saw this interview where this guy reunited with the person who put him behind bars. He forgave her for taking his life away. Crazy story"

    Makes for a very powerful song, I think! I like knowing the context of it now. The whole "Rosanna, Rosanna... in arrest room on my own" is like it's from the perspective of the wrongly convicted rapist. He's calling to the girl who put him there.
