"Make It Out Alive" as written by and Peter Cincotti....
Ah well, he had nothing to lose, it was time to cruise
And he got out of that place
He knew just what to do and made every move
Without leaving a trace

He jumped over the fence and hit the ground
Running as fast as he could without making a sound
His feet were flying through dirt and mud
Each step propelled by a rush of blood

And all he wanted to do after all those years inside
Was make it out alive, make it out alive

Well, he's been running away
Ever since the day he dropped out of school
He never did what they told him he should
He just was no good at following rules

But he learned how to get what he wanted, alright
By using a gun and a switchblade knife
He'd start a fight and kill on a whim
And take your life like it belonged to him

And he always thought if he ever did get caught
He'd make it out alive, oh make it out alive

Oh, when the cops came around, they put him under arrest
But he couldn't care less
He didn't even blink when they threw him against the wall
He didn't think he did anything wrong at all

So they locked him up and they put him away
But he knew that he was gonna escape one day
And so he did and ever since then they tried
But they never saw his face again

Right now he's bumming around
In a small town down in Mexico
And every day he tells himself he's free
But he doesn't feel it though

He still falls asleep with just one eye closed
Looking over his shoulder wherever he goes
He's got a boat and a house on the beach
But he hasn't lived one day in peace

'Cause you gotta do much more than just survive
To make it out alive, oh make it out alive
Oh, make it out alive, oh make it out alive
Make it out, make it out, make it out alive

Make it out alive
Make it out alive
Make it out alive
