It's like a jungle sometimes it makes me wonder
Eatin' out of garbage pails
Got a bum education
Can't stop to turn around
Stabbed that man right in his heart
I can't walk through the park, cause it's crazy after dark
Of how you lived so fast and died so young
In the book a long way gone its like a jungle for him, there are so many things going on, it’s crazy, and scary. He doesn’t have a steady food source so he has to find his own food, he sometimes doesn’t even know if it’s going to make him sick, or die. He has very little education, he went to school for a couple years. He can’t stop to turn around because it means death, he has to keep pushing on. He can’t just walk anywhere, he can’t go into certain places. He’s only going where he thinks it’s safe.
