My Escape
I went running down the hill
I went running and I ran so fast I almost fell
I dove into a lake
I’m no swimmer, and I barely made the other side
But I was finally on my way
On my way to making my escape
 
I heard the howling, and the cries
I thought about potential alibis
 
I flew deep into the woods
Barely off the ground, like a broken kite I’d found
All twisted up and turning
Every single muscle burning
But it felt good to be on my way
On my way to making my escape
 
And I, I heard the stars explode
I watched the moon erode
And that’s why I’m escaping
And I, I heard the screaming bees
Felt the fiery breeze
And that’s why I’m escaping now
How long can this go on?
I won’t be back
No, I won’t be back this way again
Maybe I should stop and take it all in
Fire rising on the hill
It’s beautiful, still
 
Nothing beats being on my way
On my way to making my escape
No more hiding in plain sight
It was deepest darkest night before I realized
I’m not the man they think I am
So without a map in hand,
I ran. I ran, and I ran.
