lyrics

City fell apart on the telephone
While you were telling me we were not alone
As we're secretly gonna skip the town
All the wanderers, gonna let em' down

Get away, get away, get away today
Was it you, was it me, are we not afraid?
All around, in the rain there was something real
planning out the escape, so that I can feel

Are we making our way like we're thieves?
Are we turning our back on our throne?
Tell me something that I can believe
While we're fighting for something to show
Keep on fighting for something to show

Hand me promises of a new machine
And replace the grease that we're standing in
All the whispering in my head at once
Leave me paralyzed in the summer sun

Get away, get away, get away today
Was it you, was it me, are we not afraid?
All around, in the rain there was something real
planning out the escape, so that I can feel

Are we making our way like we're thieves?
Are we turning our back on our throne?
Tell me something that I can believe
While we're fighting for something to show
Keep on fighting for something to show

I guess the leaves will go brown
When seasons pave the way to shed the nagging sounds

Are we making our way like we're thieves?
Are we turning our back on our throne?
Tell me something that I can believe
While we're fighting for something to show
Keep on fighting for something to show
