Lyrics



There was a friend of mine on murder

And the judge's gavel fell

Jury found him guilty

Gave him sixteen years in hell

He said "I ain't spending my life here

I ain't livin' alone

Ain't breakin' no rocks on the chain gang

I'm breakin' out and heading home"

Gonna make a (jailbreak)

And I'm looking towards the sky

I'm gonna make a (jailbreak)

Oh, how I wish that I could fly


All in the name of liberty

All in the name of liberty

Got to be free


Let me outta here

(Jailbreak)

Sixteen years

(Jailbreak)

Had more than I can take

(Jailbreak)


Yeah


He said he'd seen his lady being fooled with

By another man

She was down and he was up

Had a gun in his hand

Bullets started flying everywhere

People start to scream

Big man lyin' on the ground

With a hole in his body where his life had been


But it was all in the name of liberty

All in the name of liberty

I got to be free


I got to break out

Out of here


Heartbeats

They were racing

Freedom

He was chasin'

Spotlights

Sirens

Rifles firing

But he made it out


With a bullet in his back


Jailbreak

Jailbreak

Jailbreak

Jailbreak

Jailbreak

Jailbreak

Jailbreak

Jailbreak

Jailbreak

Jailbreak
