LYRICS FOR GOT AWAY CLEAN

Late in the winter

Dad grabs a rifle from, the shelf

Mommy runs upstairs

Kitty cat stays under, the bed

One says don't do this

The other goes ahead

Father hits mother

Over the head

Cheapened times are lengthened

Try to steer them right

The culprit plays victim

The jury cannot see

This isn't justice at all

How he got away clean

Struck twice with sorrow

Played once more again, as if

Family is broken

He's coming I know it, knock on door

Dad curses mom out

He's drunk without doubt

Mother fears the worst

As she is knocked out

Frightened times are lengthened

Try to hide the pain

The culprit plays victim

And no one believes me

This isn't justice at all

How he got away clean

December's almost here

November will be gone

Turn up the radio

Try to hide the pity, in my house

Daddy says save me

He's caged in his lies

I do not care now

It's better that he dies

The nightmare is over

The trouble is gone

I'm happy all by myself

You were there to save me

Mom is home again

The culprit is nailed

And everyone can see

Frightened times are lengthened

Try to hide the pain

The culprit plays victim

And no one believes me

This isn't justice at all

How he got away clean
