Lyrics

It was a cruel turn of fate
I spent 3 bitter years inside
A friend of mine had set me up
He was the one who got away with the money
I swore tonight, would be the night
This place wouldn't hold me no longer

The rain was dancing in the yard
The searchlight creeping down the wall
The night it was so black outside
I nearly jumped down in the wrong hole
But when I landed in the street
I saw the green light come shining

Busted loose, I'm out on the run
I'm so close your right in the sight of my gun
Yes I'm nervous, out of control
I can't stop the hurricane down in my soul
Nobody can hide you
I'm standing right beside you
Watching everything you do,
watching everything you do, watching everything you do

I thought that I was strong enough
To take the screws at their own game
But they got tricks they keep in store
For anyone thinking of beating the system
They had me down upon my knees
Soon I was begging, "please have mercy;"

My girl she said she'd stick it out
She kissed my fingers through the grill
She whispered she loved no-one else
Then she went off with some creep on the outside
The night they passed my down the news
That's when the fuse started burning

Busted loose, I'm out on the run
I'm so close your right in the sight of my gun
Yes I'm nervous, out of control
I can't stop the hurricane down in my soul
Nobody can hide you
I'm standing right beside you
Watching everything you do,
watching everything you do, watching everything you do
