The Escapist

Album: Viva la Vida (2008)
  • And in the end
    We lie awake
    And we dream
    We'll make an escape

    And in the end
    We lie awake
    And we dream
    We'll make an escape

  • Liz from Sydney, Australia"And... in the end, we lie awake, and we dream of making our escape..."
    mhmmm. there's something about the way this song is done, that just makes me tingle. Its like we all want to escape, and were all trying to get out of something, and lets face it, everyone in the world is looking for a way out, from something. no matter how big or small. Our thought is bent so much on how we are going to escape...
    this whole song is life. In the end, this is all that anyone wants. And, there is nothing more important. This is beautiful...
