The Great Escape

by

Pink



Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

Pink addresses the use of antidepressants on this somber yet comical album closer. "There's a lot of humor and sarcasm always in my lyrics," she told MTV News. "There's 'The Great Escape,' about how I feel the entire world is trying to numb themselves down, whether it be painkillers or anti-depressants."
Songwriter Dan Wilson (Semisonic's "Closing Time," Adele's "Someone Like You") helped Pink pen the song.
