Some Escape

some escape undercover, some escape overboard
some escape in the light of the television
some in the light of the lord
some they shut their eyes and suddenly disappear
meanwhile i can't find a single way outta here

some escape in a needle, some escape in a glass
some escape just by running around in a circle
some just by sitting on an ass
you may leave out of boredom, you may leave out of fear
meanwhile i can't find a single way outta here
i just can't seem to find a single way

i once knew a cat, let's call him ernest
ernest just couldn't seem to find his way
he tried suicide, lotta good it did him
lakes wouldn't drown him, cars wouldn't hit him
eventually poor ernest had to teach himself to stay

some escape in the country, some escape in the crowds
some i know well lose themselves in a grand piano
some jump the gates of the clouds
for him it's just a hobby, for her it's a career
meanwhile i can't find a single way outta here
how come i can't find a single way outta here
