From Millhaven maximum security
Twelve pictures lined up across the front page
Seems the Mounties had a summertime war to wage

Heard the tap on the window in the middle of the night
Held back the curtains for my older brother mike

He whispered yeah for the time being at least
And over his shoulder on the squad car megaphone
Said let's go Mikey son we're takin' you home
