Getaway - Poem by jess exile

One step one look one way
Two steps two way ultimate get away
Three-way getaway from the past
Now on the roll for the ultimate getaway

No where run no where to hide
Now what to do
Now you’re screwed

Look to your left the cops are all over you
Look to the right the FBI are on to you

Now you’re at the end of the line
You try to run
But no matter which path you take
Your life will turn into a jailbird

Bang bang your down on the floor
Tug-a-war is on the way for your life

Clatter clatter go your cuffs
Now you’re screwed
Now you’re the jailbird

One two three
What to do now
Bars are all around
No where to run

Your ultimate getaway has gone down the drain
You take a look around to find the way out

Dig dig away at the ground
Run run as fast as you can
You made your brake
The ultimate getaway
Has now come back once more

You flee to the ocean
You take your last breath
And swim out to the horizon

You’re taken your life
You’re taken your high ground
You’re free at last

Your ultimate getaway
Has come to the end
You’re free to fly away
One two three steps out
You’re the new man on the block
