Concrete Jungle

from by Griffin


Written with Carmen Melton Taylor. Finished on 6/3/14.



I'm in quicksand and I try to get away
But I feel stuck here and sink deeper every day
Punch a clock and then it's monkey see and monkey do
Feeling lost in a crowd and all alone
I'm in hell - leave a message at the tone

Living in Concrete Jungle
Dying in Concrete Jungle

When I came here it was like a foreign land
Still a boy and hoping I'd become a man
There were lessons that I learned and never wanted to
I grew up fast, feels like I'm growin' old
So if I can, I'd like to save my soul

Living in Concrete Jungle
Dying in Concrete Jungle

The jungle draws you like a moth into a flame
Before you know you're tangled up in all the games
And broken promises that burn under flourescent sun
It's a trap, don't believe your eyes
I’m warning you, so you don’t spend your life
