"My Escape" as written by Robin Joergen Sebastian Sjunnesson, Roland Ingemar Johansson, Karin Axelsson, Roger Hans Sjunnesson, Richard Andreas Sjunnesson, John Per Emil Bengtsson, Robin Joergen Sebastian Sjunnesson, Roland Ingemar Johansson, Karin Axelsson and...
I see the world
Through eyes of desperation
I never knew what I'd found
All I've had is years and years of darkness
So I cannot seem to hit the ground

I let my guard down
And you caught me by surprise
Nothing is here but a soul

Will I spend my life
Wondering
What could have been?
(Will you take me away?)

And will I stand alone
And find a better path
For myself
(For myself)

I build my life
But take this whole experience
What I build from here is to
Days would lead to right

In the end
I watch your soul fade
This everlasting emotion

Some questions so dangerous
The truth is not an option
This sustained illusion
I pull down over your eyes

but I let my guard down
And you caught me by surprise
Nothing is here but a soul

Will I spend my life
Wondering
What could have been?
(Will you take me away?)

And will I stand alone
And find a better path
For myself
(For myself)

I see truth
here in my escape
So that I can run away from here

How can I forget you?
When I listen for...

Will I spend my life
Wondering
What could have been?

Will I spend my life
Wondering
What could have been?
(will you take me away?)

And will I stand alone
And find a better path
For myself
(For myself)

Will I spend my life
Wondering
What could have been?
(will you take me away?)

And will I stand alone
And find a better path
For myself
(For myself)

    General CommentI'm loving the love and other disasters album. I've noticed there's an imporvement in their music compared to their previous albums eden fire and only inhuman, maybe because it's more melodic? I'm finding the vocals, drum and guitar work to improvise more perfectly to produce better sound and harmony.
    I can def see their influences shining through their work. Most of their songs hold a similiar format/ structure or sound effect to that of Soilwork's songs. The guttural growls can also challenge that of Anders in, In Flames.
    This band is truly talented and without a doubt their future works will be even better. This song, affliction, damage control, fallout, red-eyed friend, ruin, encaged, hellgate and powershift (might as well say the entire album) are my fav tracks.

    General CommentI think what this song means the singer always felt bad, or never felt love. Then he found some one that he actually likes but then she breaks up with him, or she disappeared, and now he feels all alone again.

    General CommentI see the world through eyes of desperation
    Never knew how long I'd fall
    But I fell trough years and years of darkness
    Still I cannot seem to hit the ground

    I let my guard down and you caught me by surprise
    Nothing is ever carved in stone

    Will I spend my life wondering
    What could have been?
    (If I didn't throw it away)
    Or will I struggle on
    And find a better path for myself
    (for myself)

    I build my life upon decades of experience
    But what I build for years took days for you to raze
    In the end I learned that one single snowflake
    Can set an avalanche in motion

    Some questions are dangerous, the truth is not an option
    This is the illusion I pulled down over your eyes
    But I let my guard down and you caught me by surprise
    Nothing is ever carved in stone

    Will I spend my life wondering
    What could have been?
    (If I didn't throw it away)
    Or will I struggle on
    And find a better path for myself
    (for myself)

    I secure my every step, slowly I advance away from you
    How can I forgive you when it wasn't your fault

    Will I spend my life wondering
    What could have been?

    Will I spend my life wondering
    What could have been?
    (If I didn't throw it away)
    Or will I struggle on
    And find a better path for myself
    (for myself)

    Will I spend my life wondering
    What could have been?
    (If I didn't throw it away)
    Or will I struggle on
    And find a better path for myself
