You Can?t Escape
© 2006 Jim Gach/Right Songs

I had just turned seven years old
When my new step-daddy stole my soul
Came into my room to tuck me in one night
Touched me in ways that just weren?t right.

You?re so immature that it?s a child you haunt.
Cut down a sapling, take what you want.
Stole my innocence without a second thought.
Never ever looked back at what you have wrought.

I really wouldn?t want to be in your shoes when the new day dawns.
You need to know your karmic bank account is severely overdrawn.

And your soul will pay
There?s no easy way
You can?t escape the fate
Of your actions.

Thought you got away with everything you did.
After all, the one you picked on was just a kid.
I looked up to you and you abused my innocence.
Now I?m in therapy looking for a second chance.

I really wouldn?t want to be in your shoes when the new day dawns.
You need to know your karmic bank account is severely overdrawn.

And your soul will pay
There?s no easy way
You can?t escape the fate
Of your actions.

When you look at what?s happened it doesn?t seem fair.
The abused suffers, you only lost your hair.
We can all take solace cause we have no need to hate
Another force is working, you can?t escape your fate.

I really wouldn?t want to be in your shoes when the new day dawns.
You need to know your karmic bank account is severely overdrawn.

And the wheel goes ?round
What?s up will soon be down
You can?t escape the fate
Of your actions.

And your soul will pay
There?s no easy way
You can?t escape the fate
Of your actions.
