In song "Где я!" lyrics is word загон and закон. Why this word have two different form?

Мне не звони на телефон, не за неуплату он отключен.
Ты знаешь, в жизни бывает и не такой загон.
Закон джунглей моих: лишь дело, меньше слов.
Знаешь, я даже не парюсь, совет вам да любовь.

These are two different words. The word загон is from teenage slang, it comes from verb загоняться, to think a lot about something not deserving that, to have the mind occupied by an unimportant problrem.

At the same time закон means law.

  • Interesting, but now I can't understand whole sentence. What does it meas? Ты знаешь, в жизни бывает и не такой загон.

  • Something like, "You know, in life there can be a bigger pounding." (play on words, too, pound as "enclosure" and "pound" as "hit repeatedly). Oct 11 '15 at 22:52
  • @Michal "you know there happen greater "idea fix"-es in life". Anyway are you serious to find any meaning in rap?

  • I think your is not complete. загон is a common word that means corral (i.e. corral for cows). And both words загоняться and загон (that 'teenage' slang) come from it. Please update.

  • @Mikant I very much doubt they come from it.
