"Escape Artist" as written by Jeremy Taggart, Duncan Coutts, Steve Mazur and Raine Maida....
Every time I think of you
I feel the coldest chill
I think about your great escape
An artist with expert skills
It's painful when you're not around
But it's bound to change

You're the ghost
Empty are these hands
You're the ghost
There's no turning back
No turning back

Every time these lights go out
I'm in this fire drill
With blood shot eyes I stand on guard
This room is quiet and still
I was never one to lay any blame
For the story's the same

You're the ghost
And empty are these hands
You're the ghost
There's no turning back
No turning back.

    General Commentbeautiful song! to me, its about "the one that got away," that person that still crosses your mind and how they made their escape from you.

    General Commentit's "empty are these hands" in the last part, not "empty obvious hands"
