Escape Artist
 

I'm trapped with rope 

And metal bars 

But my lost hope 

Hasn't gone too far


I close my eyes,  

Open my brain, 

Find truth through lies, 

Break out of pain


It's almost like magic 

Escape is my art 

When I'm feeling tragic, 

Well, that's when I start


Houdini reborn 

Dietrich anew 

I rise with bonds torn 

Straight jacked askew


So drape me in chains 

Let them lock with a clank 

Trap me in my pain 

With a shatterproof tank


Dangle me off a ledge 

It's escape or die 

I'll pull myself from the edge 

And unravel all ties
