About a prisoner and him wanting to escape, whether he be dead or alive. In the song, he toys with trying his luck in the conventional break-out manner or hoping and even planning how he can die while still inside the walls of his jail. The song talks about the idea of freedom being so close yet so far away, whether it be on the other side of the prison wall or behind a bookshelf in the prison library where he talks to a ghost in another dimension


Meet me by the gate
But remember that it’s not that hard
When there’s only, there’s only one yard
I kissed her in the site of his gun
I wonder if he knew this was love
He keeps watching, so we wouldn’t go far

Meet me at midday,
On the diamond where the baseballs played
I wanna talk, about a plan I want to talk Escape, I’m gonna make it out someday
I’m going straight over the wall
And if they shoot me down, I wouldn’t even know at all

She said, hang around
Like a ghost, in a bookshelf
I found you, don’t leave now
She said, stick around
It’s so lonely, so ghostly
But mostly, I just miss you dearly

The barbers got a blade
He comes around once a week
Sometimes you close your eyes and you hope he might cut too deep
For a pack of cigarettes he’ll push down
He’ll send you straight to hell boy,
A small price to pay, if you really want to get away
