Voodoo Blue – The Great Escape lyrics

1, 2, 3, 4
Sold your system for a ticket
To a concert a year away
Nothing beat the thrill of a rock show
But now it's so cliche
There was 1 band for everyone
You'd never leave until it's done
Defend your right to escape for the night
Where the hell is rock and roll
Happy times and letting go?
I miss the songs that take me far away
Where is good old rock and roll?
We lived fast grew up slow
I need the songs that take me far away
Where are they?
'Cause back in the day
The world had anthems
With something to say
If I could go back, back, back in time
I'd watch The Who lead the way
'Cause back then there was no net
The front of the stage was as close as you could get
Now there's all access for everyone
The damage is done
Where the hell is rock and roll
Happy times and letting go?
I miss the songs that take me far away
Where is good old rock and roll?
We lived fast grew up slow
I need the songs that take me far away, far away
It doesn't matter you wanna die
For tonight we sing it
Your dead end job has sucked you dry
But tonight we sing it
Tonight we sing as 1
1, 1, 1
Where the hell is rock and roll
Happy times and letting go?
I miss the songs that take me far away
Where is good old rock and roll?
We lived fast grew up slow
I need the songs that take me far away
Back then things weren't innocent
When big hair bright lights
And cigarettes ruled the world
And made me want to play my life away
