Japanese prisoner of love
Leering at me from the bunk above
The seventh circle of hell, right here in my cell
Did you forget you are a prisoner, as well?
Sensual deprivations
Human rights violations
Enough is enough, when shiv comes to shove
Japanese prisoner of love

I used to sleep in a comfortable bed with luxurious sheets
I used to sit on a toilet, with a seat

All the other jailbirds on E wing
Cry when I sing
Japanese prisoner of love

Sentenced and sent to the big house
Jumpsuited, shaven and de-loused
Solitarily confined, taken by force from behind
By a stunning white supremacist named Klaus

I used to think that my life is so sweet, but it's sour
Oh, I used to be alone in the shower

All the other jailbirds on E wing
Cry when I sing

All the other jailbirds on E wing
Cry when I sing
Japanese prisoner of love
