The eyes of sight can't see him coming down
The prison walls that hear no sound
He wants to get back to his life
And drink some tea and see his wife
He ran from Dover to Beltane
Got under cover in the rain
He got lost somewhere 'round route thirty-five
He was so tired, thought he'd hide
And get a little bit of sleep
Next to the horses and the sheep
He wants to get back to his life
And see the kids and fuck the wife
He wandered in a waterfront cafe
And ordered fish and chips to stay
He'11 never go away he'll never ever go away
His wife was watching television
And saw the six o'clock news had come on
An escaped convict had been shot
She wasn't hoping he was not
He wants to get back to his life
And eat some food and see his wife
