Escape

by Kinetics

[Chorus]
Trying to escape
Leave the shade
Find the sunshine baby
Let me light the way away from here
I said no way this bridge can hold our weight
Let me light the way away from here

[Verse 1]
Now I'mma tell you like you told me
If cash rules everything around 'til I leave
Now I am not saying people shouldn't buy sh*t
I am just saying that our country didn't bat an eyelid
When Americas got blood on its hands
And we scramble going Rambo to accumulate land
And leaders sitting down when we're asking them stand
And doesn't really seem like the rights in command
So I have been thinking of a master plan
Cause most of us would rather get cash in advance
Then meet the people that are different just to shake some hands
Man all we gotta do is give it a chance
I guess if it was all that easy we wouldn't break treaties
We wouldn't even need these
Somebody teach the world these lyrics
So maybe one day then we're all gonna hear it

[Chorus]
Trying to escape
Leave the shade
Find the sunshine baby
Let me light the way away from here
I said no way this bridge can hold our weight
Let me light the way away from here

[Verse 2]
Oh, Oh, Oh
I guess this how its supposed to be
But there more to being green then just roasting trees
Sometimes I'm blinded by what's in between the stems and seeds That's why I've learned to live my life without a need for weed
Yeah, that's my Microsoft Word to your Mother
Why can't we just live and enjoy each other
Cause either way you look up at the world that we cover
We all end up being sisters and brothers
And man I'm in a beautiful position
That's why I am asking you to encourage some ambition
And chalk it all up, boy this talk is all buff
I'm starting from the ground 'til I build it all up
And can you learn from me
And I promise I will learn from thee
I'm gonna teach the world these lyrics
And one day we're all gonna hear it

[Chorus]
Trying to escape
Leave the shade
Find the sunshine baby
Let me light the way away from here
I said no way this bridge can hold our weight
Let me light the way away from here
