Our Great Escape

Lyrics

Moments are flying

Like a jet airplane

I can see them coming

Then they're gone again

Town by town and day to day

We're saving for our great escape

 

Peaches and honey 

Don't taste the same

With a dirty spoon 

Without a pretty name

Bullshit and money still got the same ring

If you shine it like a diamond

Or flush it down the drain

 

We gotta go

We can't stay

There's gonna be a time

There'll be a day

When we gotta go

I know it's hard to say

Just saving for our great escape

 

Some lack the courage

For to take the blame

They roll the dice like

It's a Milton Bradley game

While the high Sierra's are going up in flames

And the world we've made is a crying shame

 

We gotta go

We can't stay 

There's gonna be a time

There'll be a day

When we gotta go

I know it's hard to say

Just saving for our great escape

 

Our great escape

Our great escape

Our great escape
