"Great Escape" as written by Ryan Miller, Adam S. Gardner and Brian A. Rosenworcel....
Please come tempt me you've got something good in mind
Dropped everything glad to be persuade this time
Into the car baby bleed the gas
Fast is fast never turning back
Oh yeah not scared of that
The past has passed and we cannot take it back
They want to know if we could get away
Yeah we backed it up and made our great escape
When the dust will settle and they discover
The furthest exodus getting somewhere
While the messengers get the message in
Try to capture us we've done nothing wrong
Please come tempt me steal me from this priss-teen life
Oh so gently everyone feels pain this time
Into the car baby bleed the gas
Fast is fast never turning back
Oh yeah not scared of that
The past has passed and we cannot take it back
They want to know if we could get away
Yeah we backed it up and made our great escape
When the dust will settle and they discover
The furthest exodus getting somewhere
While the messengers get the message in
Try to capture us we've done nothing wrong
Oh she wants me
And she needs me
She can have me all of the time
Oh she wants me
And she needs me
Circle circle dot dot dot
They want to know if we could get away
Yeah we backed it up and made our great escape
When the dust will settle and they discover
The furthest exodus getting somewhere
While the messengers get the message in
Try to capture us we've done nothing wrong

    General Commentit actually is priss-teen. its a play on words, which is part of what makes this song, and guster as a whole so awesome. this song seems to be simply about getting away from your past, seems fairly obvious, but i guess there could be an underlying message that im not getting.

    General Commentit sounds like it could be about sex, but it also sounds like running away from a mistake that cant be fixed
