    Maybe I'm better off
    If I never leave this cell
    Maybe I've lived enough
    In a world as free as hell (just as free as hell)
    Where you keep on thinking
    While it's stinking
    You enjoy the smell
    And you lick the bowl as well
    Love's out there
    They tell you
    They sell you anything to make you happy
    Then it all just turns to crap
    So maybe I'm better off
    Than I was when I was young
    Now that I know the cost
    When you try to love someone
    Guess I'm better off
    In jail at thirty-one

    What about all my friends?
    Now I won't have to watch them die
    And every time they sell out
    I won't be there to question why
    They can get so high
    On the butts they're kissing
    While they're pissing
    Way each others lives
    As they shag each others wives
    No shopping, co-oping
    None of the grand design to sooth the masses
    Til it's time to pay your taxes
    Maybe I'm better off
    Than I was in days gone by
    Now that I know the cost
    When you set your sights too high
    Yes I'm better off

    It's jailbreak time for Ian

    Maybe I'm better off
    Now that I've kissed her off
    Now that they've whisked me off to the slammer and
    Maybe I'm better off
    Now that she's pissed me off
    Now that my fist takes on a new glamour and
    Maybe my mind's run off
    Maybe I've just gone off my head
    Maybe I've just gone 'round the bend
    Maybe I'm in my own little world

    It's jailbreak time for Ian
    Praise the lord, it's jailbreak time for Ian
    What the hell took you so long?

    Life hands you new chances
    Uncertain circumstances
    Set you back
    But then you win the Lotto jackpot
    Every time you give up (every time you give up)
    Then you give up being young
    Everything has a cost
    That's the way this world is run
    Maybe I'm better off
    Now I'm free and thirty-one
    I'm free, male, and thirty-one
