lyrics

You know it barely made a sound when this city died?
An empty sigh was the last we ever heard of
what we thought we'd never lose and spent our pointless lives diffusing
the opinions of a crowd who had the upper hand in every single fight.
You know our heartbeats kept the pulse of this scene alive?
But they were slowing from the daily grind of living in
a place we saw had given up and got lost in the making of
a world that gave them everything and never asked if anything was real.

I feel like we have got to run away to somewhere else.
Hop a plane and get far from this hell.
Looks like we wasted half our lives.
It's true now; we can never make it right.
Let's blow all of our cash on the next flight.
Escape from Philadelphia tonight.

We felt the cold when they closed all the venues down.
The new year came and we looked around and saw that
all our champions were gone and all the mighty ones had fallen
and the audience was silent and we didn't even have a decent fight.
We had to fold when big money took over town.
"We're sorry guys, but we’ve gotta save ourselves,
and when you take the cost of power and the door guy times the hours
minus any type of effort or community, you'll see that we are right"

I feel like we have got to run away to somewhere else.
Hop a plane and get far from this hell.
Looks like we wasted half our lives.
It's true now; we can never make it right.
Let's blow all of our cash on the next flight.
Escape from Philadelphia tonight.

We always said it would never come to this.
That we could beat them every time.
We're overdue for losing everything.
At least we made it out alive.
