"Escape From Within" as written by and Gilbert Carlson....
I lie here awake.
My lifeless body that's cold feeling the pain.
That's a cry far away.
Why is this prolonged, I've already lived, what's to fear.

Now kill the power, become partners of sin.
Alone in our decision to unlock the door,
And escape from within.
For only death is my life.
Escape from within.

From terminal living, cutting me, low in my prime.
Contract of death, silent screams beg to be signed.
You'll live the life of a saint as you decide,
Mercy kill to turn the tide.

Now kill the power, become partners of sin.
Alone in our decision to unlock the door,
And escape from within.
For only death is my life.
Escape from within.
Escape from within.

From terminal living, through the years I've laid alone.
Tubes through my body, there's no will to carry on.
You'll live the life of a saint as you decide,
Mercy kill to turn the tide.

Now kill the power, become partners of sin.
Alone in our decision to unlock the door,
And escape from within.
For only death is my life.
Escape from within.
Escape from within.
Escape from within.

    General CommentThis song seems to be about someone that is being kept alive on life support in a vegitative state. They want to be killed by the life support being turned off "now kill the power".

    This song seems to share a similar theme to Metallica's "One", but obviously not as good

    General CommentInterestingly, this song came out in the same year as "One". Euthinasia / assisted suicide must have been a hot topic that year or something
