► Lyrics:

As I make my way to higher ground
I hear the sound of cities shutting down
I see the water slowly creeping in
And feel a dampness on my skin

As I hide inside this empty room
I smell the scent of bitter toxic fumes
I watch the paint begin to crack and peel
And feel my clothing start to burn

Tell me how can I escape
From a feeling I just can’t shake?
Every time I try to run or hide
It finds me

Don’t know how to differentiate
What is really there from what is fake
The true danger lies within my mind
It finds me

As I fly across this empty space
To start a new life in a better place
I get a sudden urge to turn around
Before I crash into the ground

Tell me how can I escape…

Every other sound keeps getting drowned out by alarm bells
That keep on going off when nothing’s wrong
I never could see past the next disaster bound to happen
Even when I was safe all along

Tell me how can I escape…
