about

A punk song done on acoustic guitar. The chord progressions here was partly inspired by the Eraserheads' earlier works.

Hey, it's just a coincidence that one of my favourite albums ever is Blur's The Great Escape.

I enjoyed singing the chorus here, where my wife sings in unison.

This was the first track I was confident enough to release on YouTube.

lyrics

OUR GREAT ESCAPE

This situation's gotten out of hand
Out of control
Too many people there
I wanna stay outside
I'm gonna lose my mind if I sit here
making conversation
Take me away from here
Let's disappear in style

It's our great escape
So don't be late
It's our great escape
So don't be late
It's our great escape
So don't be late
Great!

I'm not a people person
So call a shrink, send in the narc
But being outdoors alone with you
gives me a high
Seem to recall my life was
simple when I was obscure
So take me away from here
Let's disappear in style
