Lyric "Escape"

Running from the park
Sleeping out in the rain
From falling down the drain
Feeling drained from the maimed

Mutilated, diseased, disastered, deficient and dead
Raging waves with no name
Raining pain, distorted face, placing blame
Hyper judging all the time

Lost my mind on the train, running from the insane
Children taught to blow their brains out in the holy name
Running from fame
Where everybody knows your name

Running the same vain empty
Shattered, splattered, nothing matters anyway
Running for something to say
Looking for meaning in speech running from afraid

It's the great escape, got to sneak away
When they look away we'll just fade away
Carry me in your memory
If I should pass away before the break of day

Like the light life happy clouds
Fluff hazy bright, sunny daze puff
Fly a kite afraid to face the night
What if I can't make it right?

The sword cuts both ways night and day
Joy that goes away, things seem to sway, nothing stays the same
Even in this madness we will survive
Even in this madness we will survive

It's the great escape, got to sneak away
When they look away, we'll just fade away
Carry me in your memory
If I should pass away before the break of day

Running through the forest and I'm running through the woods
Running my whole life, running like I should
Running for survival, running from the rifle
Running from the Bible, blood libels and false idols

Craziness inside me, afraid to peek through the bushes
And see closed off, locked down
Reality behind barbed wire with no key
Running, running

It's the great escape, got to sneak away
When they look away, we'll just fade away
Carry me in your memory
If I should pass away before the break of day
