Sought for my return right from the day I went unseen
My exit was carefully mapped, the getaway was clean
There’s no way to locate me now, I say that free of doubt

Escape route planned from months behind, how did I really go
The last surviving witness flees, the only know that knows
What’s really going on up there, do they even exist

Now’s the time where all the lost are found
Weekly sermon to which we are bound
Twenty tortured souls will gather round
Nightmare rituals without a sound

Bet your life I’m on the run, I’m destined to escape
Careful where my footprints lead while fleeing place to place
I know they’re somewhere close behind, I’m just a step ahead

States are thoughts of yesterday and towns are losing names
I’ll spend my life diverting trace and always playing games
The normal world has ceased, why am I the one they need

A clear mind impossible to grasp
Knew it since the start it was a trap
Herd of demons meeting up for no good
Jumped into it so misunderstood

I cannot kill to ease my pain
They’ll chase me down ‘til I’m insane
I can’t approach them one-on-one
So soon the damage will be done

All hope for my normal life has seized
Constant on the go with what I need
What I need, with what I need, with what I need
All hope for my normal life has….. seized
