"Anyplace But Here" as written by Frank Joseph Bello, Charlie L. Benante, John Robert Bush and Scott Ian Rosenfeld....
Breath by breath you take
Still you're grasping for air
Miles and miles you move
Into the abyss you stare
(Into the abyss you stare)

Running from the plight
Mighty grips its hold
And that hunger's hanging on
But never return to the fold

With endurance
As the earth behind you burns
You can feel the heat
Keep your will and never turn

Come on, come on, follow closely
Come on, come on, end this slavery
Come on, come on, where you're going
Any place but here

And you pray for more hope
So this will run its course
Everyday you move
Handcuffs lose they their force
(Handcuffs lose they their force)

Abandon all you know
So destitution hides
United in despair
Still makes it harder to divide

With exhaustion
As the earth behind you melts
You can feel the heat
But your need for living fails

Come on, come on, follow closely
Come on, come on, end this slavery
Come on, come on, where you're going
Any place but here

Come on, come on, follow closely
Come on, come on
Come on, come on, where you're going
Any place but here

A logical reason for being
Is quickly drifting away
People prove fiendishly greedy
Each time you try to believe

It's hard to be defiant
There's ways to kill the giant
Slaughtered by pins

Come on, come on, follow closely
Come on, come on, end this slavery
Come on, come on, where you're going
Any place but here

Come on, come on, follow closely
Come on, come on
Come on, come on, where you're going
Any place but here

Any place but here
Any place but here
