Great Escape 
      Sitting there at home, he arrived home late 
      With no more blood cells to inebriate 
      He lunged at her there, she fell from the couch 
      He grabbed her body as he pulled her down 
      She was screaming no, kicking out at him 
      But he weighed a ton, she could never win 
      He fell down on her like a sack of snakes 
      Tears fell from her face as she cried and cried 

      When thereís hope, when thereís fear 
      What is there to say that he might hear 
      You turn him down with no mistake 
      Now youíre leaving, the great escape 

      She ran from the room out of their back door 
      Leaving him to sleep on the front room floor 
      And she walked that night to the town hall square 
      She knew it was through and she didnít care 
      She stood up to him, he looked down on her 
      He shot the message and the messenger 
      When he woke he was sick with all the shame 
      Tears fell from his face as she cried and cried 

      She arrived back home, he was on his knees 
      Begging with his heart please come back to me
