False Escapes

Our drugs are an escape
Our hard liquor is an escape
We try to hide our feelings and thoughts
For whenever we let it out,
It doesn't mend our hurt anyhow
So why not just cover it up?
Take the drugs
Take the liquor
So we can forget
Run away from our problems
Yeah some call it a coward's way out…
But I'm not talking about a way out-
I'm talking about an escape
A runaway
A plaster on our phony faces
