9: ‘Prison Bound’ by Social Distortion

Pink’s father, Distortion, is going back to prison. He has been in and out of it many times and fully expects to go back there, once he gets out again. He gives word to Pink to inform her of his sentence and tell her, he’ll be out again one day, purposely not specifying when.

The system, personified in a prison guard named Johnny, keeps telling him, that Distortion’s time here will reform him, but Distortion knows better. Whichever lesson they’re trying to teach him will probably never catch on.

The prison lies on the outskirts of town and the railroad goes straight by. Distortion shares a cell with three other men. It’s cold and clammy, but he understands he has to do his time.
