Marillion – The Great Escape lyrics

Heading for the great escape
Heading for the rave
Heading for the permanent holiday
Heading for the winter trip
Heading for the slide
Heading for the dignified walk away
Heading for the open road
Goodbye to all that
Heading for the automatic overload
Standing in the open boat
Standing in the swing
Waiting for the ringing and the bright light
Waiting to be recognised
Quiet applause will do
They shower you with flowers when they bury you
You're holdin on
You're holdin on......
I) The Last of You
Just when I thought I'd seen the last of you
You come here scratchin' at my door
Your pain and anger's in the howling dark
Of every corridor I walk
So tell me more
About the love that you rejected
Tell me more about the trust you disrespected
I still don't know
Why did you hurt the very one
Why did you hurt the very one that you should have protected?
Ii) Falling From the Moon
Don't ask me why I'm doing this
You wouldn't understand
You're asking the wrong questions
You couldn't understand
A bridge is not a high place
The fifty-second floor
Icarus would know
A mountain isn't far to fall
When you've fallen from the moon
There's murder on the street
I'm ashes on the water now
Somewhere far away
I have fallen
Fallen
From the moon
Falling...
