Midlake – He Tried To Escape lyrics

He tried to escape once in a balloon
He tried to escape once in a balloon

On the foggiest day he decided not to stay
The ground below held his life not long ago
And through the fog, the ground, it disappeared

He felt he had made it and starts to come down
A crowd of people that followed were cheering loud

But then something went wrong
And he couldn't get back anywhere
And when he landed just inside the gates
The [Incomprehensible] and carried him away
