'there's no rush that will' is the definition.
I know nothing about this answer so I cannot judge whether this works.

'prison for years' is the wordplay.
'prison' becomes 'time' (as in a spell in prison).
'for' is a charade indicator (letters next to each other) (I've seen this in other clues).
'years' becomes 'lotsof' (I can't explain this - if you can you should believe this answer much more).
'time' after 'lotsof' is 'LOTS OF TIME'.

'mean' is the link.
