"Freeway Time in L.A. County Jail" as written by and Bradley James Nowell....
On the freeway in the county the sun don't shine
I feel, I feel, I feel, I feel a Bati man
Outside my cell deputies creep
And in this cell all I do is sleep and I dream
That I'm free
And I'm back on the reef
Where I throw my net out into the sea
All the fine hinas come swimming to me
They hold me and they promise me things
And when the tides high I cry like a little baby
Don't give me no right kind a love no Sunday morning
Don't want no puppy loving
Hold me babe, a new stylee
Hungry babe, a new stylee
And a angry dog is a hungry dog
And a hungry dog is a angry dog
I feel like rocking, I wanna with you

I'm alive gotta contact home
Gotta contact my baby girl
But I would never could get up
Why does it have to be so damn tough?
With mayates and the eses, yes their steady on the floor
I'll be damned if a man with a shake in his hand will make me feel, I feel, I feel a Bati man
And I know, that I'm there someday

I'm back on the reef
Where I throw my net out into the sea
All the fine hinas come swimming to me
Hold me baby, promise me
With no protection on my erection I won't get no VD
Don't give me no right kind a love no Sunday morning
I don't want no puppy loving, Gwarn
Hold me babe, got a new stylee
And a angry dog's a hungry dog
He's a naked man is a naked man
And a wicked dog is a hungry dog
I feel like rocking, I wanna rock with you!

    General CommentI think Bard is singing about when he was in jail and then thinking about better times, like surfing

    "And I'm back on the reef
    Where I throw my net
    Out into the sea"

    and Being with girls and people he love.

    General Commentas a kid listening to this i never understood the song nor the title. unfortunatly, through life experiences, "freeway time" means to the inmates the when in the dorm your not stuck on your bunk. the rows we called the freeway. the small space between the triple stacked bunk beds we called the driveway. ironically, la county jail can be seen from the freeway as the large concrete building with no windows.

    General CommentI just wanted to ask. Did anyone get the impression that Sublime used the melody from The Door's song 'Roadhouse Blues'?? They seemed to love them since they used the Doors in Cisco Kid.

    I figured he wrote this song inspired by all the people he saw in jail and thinking about other stuff to pass the time.
