"Escape From Here" as written by Nathan D Leone, Matthew J Leone, Daniel David Torelli and Mateo Camargo....
I just need something that will take me away

I'd throw my heart into your fire, when I was blind
And you knew that I'd come crawling back, and you knew you'd always find me there
But this time some things are gonna change, I'm breaking out
And I know someday I'll be ok, and I know someday I'll stand again

But this won't be the end of me
'cause I'm breaking away

I just need something that will take me away
To help me disconnect to get you off my mind
I just need something that will give me the strength to get away from you
To escape from here

And as I'm sifting through the ash, I find myself
And you knew that I'd come crawling back, and you knew you'd always find me there
But I'm sure you're never gonna change, 'cause you've learned this all before
And I know that you'll come crawling back, but I swear you'll never find me there

I just need something that will take me away
To help me disconnect to get you off my mind
I just need something that will give me the strength to get away from you
To escape from here

What was I waiting for, The years went flying by me
And I can't ever get them back
What was I afraid of, I just want to live my life while I'm still alive
'cause I'm still alive

I just need something that will make me numb
To help me disappear, to anywhere but here

You'll break away

I just need something that will take me away
To help me disconnect to get you off my mind
I just need something that will give me the strength to get away from you
To escape from here

For now I'm fine, for now I just want to live my life while I'm alive
For now I'm fine, for now I just want to live my life while I'm alive

    General Commenti think this is about how he realises he was acting blind when he was with her, and realises how she manipulated him
    "I'd throw my heart into your fire, when I was blind
    And you knew that I'd come crawling back"
    as if he was blind from love, as "love is blind etc etc "
    although he may have tried to leave, he thinks she knew hed come back cause he relies on her cause she has such a hold on him.
    he knows he must leave now and although it wil hurt him he knows one day he'll be alright and will be able to not depend on ehr, cause he will force himself not to.
    "And I know someday I'll be ok
    And I know someday I'll stand again
    But this won't be the end of me"

    the chorus seems to be that he is searching for something to take his mind off her so tht he will be alright. maybe he is looking for a new partner.

    "But I'm sure you're never gonna change
    'Cause you've learned this all before
    And I know that you'll come crawling back
    But I swear you'll never find me there"

    she realises shes wrong andhas treated him like shit and says shell change, but he knows she wont cause its who she is, so now she wants him more than she thought she could but he wont have her when she comes "crawling back" and wont be able to find him.

    when it says"what was i awaiting for..." i think this is like he was with her for years "years went by" but wanted to leave for a while, seemingly waiting for something, but now he doesnt know what. he realises he has wasted part of his life on her due to fear of her controlling him. but she hasnt totally cut him down "cause im still alive" and he just wants to get over her and move on.

    "you'll break away"
    i think ths is him telling her she will be okay eventually, but i am not sure he cares that much any more, cause he's alright now.
    "for now i'm fine."

    General CommentNathan said in a Kerrang Interview that he was in a really bad realationship and everyone around him could see it but not him and when he finially got out of it he felt great and could do stuff he wan't allowed to when he was with this girl so I think this is what this song is written about. ^_^

    General CommentYou can get it on limewire

    And I actually think there are some lyrical similarities to this one and now and never "what was I waiting for, these years went flying by me, I just want to live me life while i'm alive, cos im still alive. Compare those lines to now or never "what are we waiting for, these years are dying slowly, open your eyes, we're still alive, still alive.
