Can you elaborate more on the conflict between "continue" and the lexical scoping?

I understand lexical scoping but I am not able to understand the interaction. 

I am not an expert in computer science.

Also I know that theoretically this can achieved using ‘goto’ but I don’t like that approach.

that was exactly the reason why there's `goto`.  a usable continue keyword has some ugly interactions with true lexical scoping, so ironically the `goto` is the cleaner way.
