“Escape” or “Music is sometimes fantabulous”

They’re moments few and far between, but I love it when I actually take the time to hear a song’s lyrics and they just so happen to be a reflection of what’s going on inside. They don’t have to be riveting…they just have to resound.

Introducing the mighty Hoobastank, and their nifty song Escape. The only thing about these lyrics I’d change would be replacing all the "we" statments with "I".

Another day goes without any change
The feeling we live with still remains
We’re stuck in a hole and we’re searching for anything to hold onto
There has to be somewhere that we can be safe from the lives we live each day
There has to be somewhere that we can be far away…

We have to escape and I will go anywhere if you just lead the way
Escape to a place where we’ll be together, together everyday
We have to escape…

We could be living how we wanted to
Instead of doing things we’re forced to do
With no one to tell us that we should be going through what they went through
There has to be someplace that nobody knows, somewhere we can only go
There has to be someplace that we can be all alone…

We have to escape and I will go anywhere if you just lead the way
Escape to a place where we’ll be together, together everyday (x2)

Oooooo… together everyday
oh yeaaaah…

We have to escape
We have to escape

We have to escape and I will go anywhere if you just lead the way
Escape to a place where we’ll be together, together everyday (x2)
We have to escape…
