"Escape" as written by Kim Fowley, Mark N Anthony ...
Paint on my cruel or happy face
I hide me behind it
It takes me inside another place
Where no one can find it

Escape, I get out when I can
I escape anytime I can
It's all escape, I'm crying in my beer
Come on, let's escape, just get me out of here

Don't get me wrong, don't get me right
I'm not like you are
When I get home from work at night
I'm blacker and bluer

So I escape, I get out when I can
I escape anytime I can
It's all escape, I'm crying in my beer
Escape, just get me out of here

But where am I running to?
There's no place to go
Just put on my make-up
And get me to the show, yeah, escape

Yeah, what are you waiting for?

My doctor said, just come around
And you'll be taken care of
And while he ran my problems down
I stole his mascara

That's how I escape, I get out when I can
I escape anyway I can
I escape, I'm crying in my beer
Let's escape, just get me out of here

Escape, let's get out while we can
It's escape, anyway we can
Come on, let's escape
Nobody wants us around here anyway

Escape, what are we waiting for
Escape, escape, escape, come on now let's escape
Escape, escape, escape now
Escape, escape, escape, escape

    General CommentDon't forget alcohol, he did have a problem with that and there's the line "I'm crying in my beer".

    Song MeaningSteven is healed of his diarrhea problem, but he actually misses it. In the last part of the song, he "escapes" by commmitting suicide. Alice is a pretty sick guy.
