The Escapist Lyrics

Who's there knocking at my window?
The owl and the Dead Boy.
This night whispers my name,
All the dying children.

Virgin snow beneath my feet,
Painting the world in white.
I tread the way,
Gonna lose myself into a tale.

Come hell or high water,
My search will go on.
Clayborn
Voyage without an end...

The nightingale in a golden cage:
That's me locked inside reality's maze.
Can't someone make my heavy heart light?
Come undone, bring me back to life!

A nightingale in a golden cage:
That's me locked inside reality's maze.
Can't someone make my heavy heart light?
It all starts with a lullaby...

Journey, homeward bound.
The sound of a dolphin calling,
Tearing off the mask of man.
The tower: my sole guide.

This is who I am:
Escapist,
Paradise Seeker!
Farewell, time to fly
Out of sight
Out of time,
Away from our lies!

(The nightingale in a golden cage:)
(That's me locked inside reality's maze.)
The nightingale in a golden cage:
That's me locked inside reality's maze.
Can't someone make my heavy heart light?
Come undone, bring me back to life!

A nightingale in a golden cage:
That's me locked inside reality's maze.
Can't someone make my heavy heart light?
It all starts with a lullaby...

The nightingale in a golden cage:
That's me locked inside reality's maze.
Can't someone make my heavy heart light?
Come undone, bring me back to life!

(A nightingale...)
(In a golden cage...)
