This Place Is A Prison Lyrics - The Postal Service

Review The Song (8)

this place is a prison, these people aren't your friends
inhaling thrills through $20 bills and the
tumblers are drained and then flooded again and again

there's guards at the on ramps armed to the teeth
and you may case the grounds
from the cascades to puget sound,
but you are not permitted to leave

i know there's a big world out there
like the one i saw on the screen
in my living room late last night
it was almost too bright to see
i know that it's not a party
if it happens every night
pretending there's glamour and candelabra
when you're drinking by candlelight

what does it take to get a drink in this place?
what does it take, how long must i wait?

what does it take to get a drink in this place?
what does it take, how long must i wait?

amazing.. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/1/10

umm hello. The postal service is amazing . This song is a lil different than what they usually do but equally as awesome. People need to listen to better music. Wtf is wrong with people? Try turning off the radio and checking out some underground bands.

same lines. | Reviewer: cute. | 8/4/09

i am a big fan of this band but isnt "i know that it's not a party
if it happens every night " also in one of bring me the horizon's songs ( i also love that band)too? i know it is worded a little different but it is definitely in alot like vegas.

Hmmm... | Reviewer: Dani | 7/30/09

I'm hearing this song for the very first time at the moment and I must admit I was quite disappointed at the beggining of the song but half way through I really loved it and now that it's drawing to a close I wish it was longer.

As for that comment down there that says something about slipknot and blink 182
I LOVE SLIPKNOT! Not that big into blink 182.

But my favourite band would have to be AFI.
then Death Cab For Cutie.
Then Blaqk Audio.
Then The Postal Service.
And being that I listen to A LOT of music (I'm 13 I have nothing to do rly but listen to music) 4th is pretty high up!!

Beautiful | Reviewer: Painful Melody | 5/13/09

The only word for this stunning peice of music is beautiful.
the transition between sadness and depresion to a slightly witty question is amazing.

I am a fan of the postal service and this has to be one of my favourite songs by them

and my two other favourite bands are slipknot and blink 182 :D

AWESOME!!! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/10/08

musical emotion | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/30/08

i am an suffering alcoholic and a very emotional person. this song has touched me very much. i sit in my apartment with the lights off and a bottle and let it pour over me hoping someday i'll get out of this.

effect | Reviewer: usagi3 | 7/25/07

i would not advise anybody to listen to it on their workplace. i did it once and now it's always in my mind at work.

good song | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/2/07

One of the darker songs by the postal service, this song has a nice melody, and well written lyrics. I love it!
