Lyrics

All around the prison yard
The word was spreading fast
No more solitary for Michael Pain
And this day was going to be his last

And as the night drew closer
The silence grew so loud
Everyone knew what he was going to do
And it hung like a black cloud

Please Come Home Please Come Home

Now Michael was no loser
But he knew just how to lose
He was deaf dumb and blind
When he witnessed a crime
He never gave no one a clue
But unlike a someone, the job was done
And they boasted to their girlfriends in bed
He went right home to see his own true love
And promised that they would wed

Please Come Home Please Come Home
Please Come Home Please Come Home

Now some people, well they are coveters
And some people are just green
Some people are so sick inside and they live way beyond their means
And when the world was doubled for the arrest of young Michael Pain
It was too much for their greedy eyes and all his work had been in vain

Please Come Home Please Come Home
Please Come Home Please Come Home
Please Come Home Please Come Home
Please Come Home Please Come Home

Now there's a song I sing to somebody I know who hates some of my good luck
He would gladly see me sink and drown for the price of a lousy buck
But just like Michael when the day is done, I’ll know just what to do
I Start all over again, he got my poison pen, and I’ll write another song for you

Please Come Home Please Come Home
It’ll say
Dear Somebody
You can’t break me
You can’t break me
You can’t break me
You can’t break me down
No matter what you say
You can’t break me down
No matter what you do
You can’t take my soul
You can’t break my heart
I’m coming back
I’m coming back
