Way Out of Here

  • Out at the train tracks
    I dream of escape
    But a song comes onto my iPod
    And I realize it's getting late

    And I can't take the staring
    And the sympathy
    And I don't like the questions "How do you feel?"
    "How's it going in school?"
    And "Do you wanna talk about it?"

    Way out
    Way out of here
    Fade out
    Fade out, vanish

    And I'm trying to forget you
    And I know that I will
    In a thousand years, or maybe a week
    Burn all your pictures, and cut out your face

    The shutters are down and the curtains are closed
    And I've covered my tracks
    Disposed of the car
    Trying to forget even your name and the way that you look
    When you're sleeping
    Dreaming of this

    Way out
    Way out of here
    Fade out
    Fade out, vanish Writer/s: COLIN EDWIN BALCH, GAVIN RICHARD HARRISON, RICHARD BARBIERI, STEVEN JOHN WILSON
