"Escape" as written by and Prince Rogers Nelson....
Snare drum pounds on the two and four
All the party people get on the floor
All the party people get on the floor
Bass

Glam Slam (Glam Slam)
Escape!

Glam Slam
Free your mind from this rat race
Glam Slam
Escape!

Fifteen minutes ain't long enough
To be out your mind in a world so tough
If you want to escape and truly be
All the crack in Compton won't set you free, come on

Glam Slam (slammin')
Free your mind from this rat race
Glam Slam
Escape!

You got to be yourself, you gotta be aware
'Cause the Gangster, man, he don't give a care (don't care)
Whether you live, or whether you die
Glam Slam escape, gotta give it a try (ooh-ooh-ooh)

Glam Slam
Free your mind from this rat race
Glam Slam (slammin')
Escape!

(Party baby)
(Party baby)
(Party baby)
(Party baby)
(Party baby)
(Party baby) (where did I hear that before?)
(Party baby)
(Party baby)

Glam Slam
Escape!

Everybody trippin' on the party bass
However high you get, is a matter of taste

(Party baby)
(Party baby)

Winner takes all in the hardest race

Don't get on the scale if you ain't got the weight
It's more hard to love than it is to hate
Say, it's more hard to love than it is to hate
Come on, it's more hard to love than it is to hate
Yeah, it's more hard to love than it is to hate
One more, more hard to love than it is to hate

Escape!
Glam Slam

Glam Slam
Free your mind from this rat race
Glam Slam
Escape!

    General CommentThough this song was recorded during sessions for "Lovesexy" in '88, it actually sounds like something from "Graffiti Bridge", considering the club Prince's character played at was called "The Glam Slam".
