about

The song is about escaping your ego and self doubt. It's about the fear we place on ourselves and how it waits and strikes upon us at moments of release and bliss. It's about where we, you and I, the human race, are going. Together we are escaping fear and stepping out of that darkness into the light where we can feel happiness freely. - Rachel Kolar

Rachel came up with the lyrics to this one and Rob used a chord progression and melody he was working on to co-write the basic outline. Rob tossed in his stomping kick beat and rhythmic guitar along with some vocals. Oliver then threw in an infectious bassline. Lauren added percussive and syncopated tap along with snare drum. Aaron came up with a unique handclap rhythm and atmospheric slide parts. Somehow it all came together.

lyrics

ESCAPE TONIGHT

It's hard to know when it's complex
A straight line curves, two ends connect
But somehow we all feel so pleased
Even the lost can be appeased

Though lingering doubt waits and remains
Think of a loophole, idle for change
Ready to strike the moment just right
But you and I will escape tonight

Escape tonight
Escape tonight
You and I
Step out of the dark to see the light

Truth be told we weren't the ones
Let the void roll down your tongue
Six inches above the ground
Searching for the holy sound

Though lingering doubt came back again
Cloaked them in black, stripped the humans
Ready to strike the moment just right
But you and I will escape tonight

Escape tonight
Escape tonight
You and I
Step out of the dark to see the light

oooooooooooooooooooooo
oooooooooooooooooooooo

You and I will escape tonight
You and I will escape tonight
You and I will escape tonight
You and I will escape tonight

Escape tonight
Escape tonight
You and I
Step out of the dark to see the light
