"Escape" as written by and Matthew Wentworth....
I hope you're comfortable
Just sit down, sit down
Where to start, I have no idea
We'll try to find shelter from this pouring rain
I think I see it
Home isn't where you make it anymore

who would have thought we'd make it this far
Now I don't know where to go

so I'll escape, escape to where I need to be
The water's getting higher and I need to breath
Where do we go now, I'll ask you once again
With our lungs gone, our lives are gone

open up my chest, you'll find no heart for this
Curiosity has taken over my insides
Eating away at my bones
When does this end

who would have thought we'd make it this far
Now I don't know where to go

so I'll escape, escape to where I need to be
The water's getting higher and I need to breath
Where do we go now, ill ask you once again
With our lungs gone, our lives are gone

where do we go now
The windshield crashes in and our memory starts to sprint away
The dust kicks up and our site is gone, oh, I didn't know

show me that were living
Show me what we're made of
Show me where to go

    General CommentI realy realy loved Escape the Fate (if you dont know who they are look them up) and with the fact that they are more or less dead i can easily see these guys replacing them at the top of my list of fav bands

    General Commentno one said what this song is about how hate how people say great band blah blah blah atleast when your done you can atleast say what the meaning is afterwords ohk well anyway i think this song is about how someone is fighting depression or sadness and they want somone to help them out of it especially the chorus when they say

    Now i don't know where to go

    So I'll escape, escape to where I need to be
    The water's getting higher and I need to breath
    Where do we go now, I'll ask you once again
    With our lungs gone, our lives are gone

    General Commentits pretty much just an emo song.
    its about.. someone hurt you, and you're asking them to show you why they are worth your time

    its saying "Prove it to me" "Show me you're sincere"

    General CommentESCAPE THE FATE IS DEAD. Ronny was GODDDD.

    anyway, yeah, i really like the guitar in this song, also i believe it's about someone fighting with depression as well.

    i saw them in concert, it was basically the shit:)

    Song MeaningI think this song is about a dying relationship and wanting to leave, being bored, curious, and confused.

    who would have thought we'd make it this far
    now i don't know where to go


    so I'll escape, escape to where i need to be
    the water's getting higher and i need to breath
    where do we go now, I'll ask you once again
    with our lungs gone, our lives are gone

    this is saying he is surprised they have lasted this long and is bored and doesn't know anything else they can do. the water is getting higher is referring to the discomfort and unhappiness in their relationship, the feeling that the sadness caused by the relationship is drowning him. He has asked her how to fix their relationship but nothing permanent ever happens. their lungs being gone and live gone. the lungs is probably from them fighting with each other and it is killing them on the inside and they are devastated at the fact that they wont last.

    Open up my chest, you'll find no heart for this
    Curiosity has taken over my insides,
    Eating away at my bones
    When does this end?

    he is saying he has no more passion for their relationship. His eyes are wandering like any guys but maybe he is starting to fall for another person or has been cheating. eating away at his bones makes me think he has been cheating or feels like he has been cheating, referring to the extreme guilt. he wants his unfaithfulness to end.

    those are just some of the lines that i felt i could explain the best(and i kinda don't feel like typing anymore, haha). I hope you guys enjoyed my input. Music is art and like all art it is the eye of the beholder.

    General CommentI've seem them live twice (they're from my state which is cool) and I almost fell into their drumset the last time I saw them lol and every time Trevor shook his hair I got soaked in his sweat ...eww. I love how I'm probably the shortest person at these shows but I manage to get up right next to the bands I like... I must be magical.
    ...but, I digress.
    to me, escape could be about drugs... think about that whole "with our lungs gone, our lives are gone" thing. just a thought though... im most likely wrong =]
