lyrics

[Verse 1]
As Time runs out!
Civilians flood the streets!
A city in retreat!
He spins the world to find me
What he doesn't know, I've been trailing him for weeks
By now you've got your new plan!
And we'll be running as fast as we can!
Space and time is mine to transcend
But don't call this a come back

[Pre-Chorus]
I'm repossessing every word I said!
(The words are record now, can't stop them flowing out!)
This room is wired now they've sent out a relay
(They're coming to get me out, through the walls I hear them shout)

[Chorus]
Who am I to say
They carry the orders
Like it or not we're dead anyway
So let's play the game
You got no more excuses
Just make your escape
No more excuses just make your escape!
Just make your escape!!


[Verse 2]
When I get out when I get free from all this weight you've drops on me
Your fear still binds you here
You can't let it go
Waste your time while I'm set free
By now you've got a new plan!
And we'll be running as fast as we can!
Space and time is mine to transcend
But don't call this a come back

[Pre-Chorus]

[Chorus]

[Bridge]
Still given another chance
I'd still keep safe
I knew this would go my way
Still forcing me to dance
When you shoot my feet
Not some tragedy, it was just a toe
It's still a part of me

[Verse 3]
When I get out
When I get free from all this weight you've dropped on me
I know this world could break me
Honestly, honestly
Showed you tomorrow and you lied to me
Let's cut out all our tongues
So we can talk tomorrow
Honestly. honestly. Honestly

[Pre-Chorus]
I'm repossessing every word I said!
This room is wired now they've sent out a relay

[Chorus]
Who am I to say
They carry the orders
Like it or not we're dead anyway
So let's play the game
Don't make your excuses
Just make your escape
No more excuses just make your escape!
Just make your escape!!
