Great Escape Lyrics

Paper bags and plastic hearts
All are belongings in shopping carts
It's goodbye
But we got one more night
Let's get drunk and ride around
And make peace with an empty town
We can make it right

Throw it away
Forget yesterday
We'll make...

    I think this song is about escaping the 'norm' of life you know? Like, running away from what everyone thinks you are or wants you to be, so that you can just do what you want or need to find who you are and who you wanna be. *And it doesn't hurt to take a friend/group or friends along for the ride either*

    "Let's get drunk and ride around
    And make peace with an empty town
    We can make it right "

    or

    "We'll scream loud at the top of our lungs
    And they'll think it's just cause we're young
    And we'll feel so alive

    I think this song is about not conforming and being able to be whoever you want to be...

    Like someone said previously.. its about defying authority.. [hence why i love it so much.. hehe.]

    Of course, this is just my opinion. =]

    Much love.

    This song is totally about escaping your problems and enjoying life. We can't keep what happend in the past get to us. We gotta live and enjoy ourselves before its too late. This is all about defying authority! Live your life how you want, don't let some old dude tell you what to do!

    It sounds to me as though this song is about the night of graduation, and how it is their final opportunity to have a good, carefree time just hanging out before they enter the real world. This is interesting because the graduation theme at my school for this year is "The Gr8 Escape."

    Hudson's Bay High School Class of 2008! Go Eagles!

    The song is about growing up and beginning to take responsibility but before you do you have one last night of fun with your best friends.

    A boy and a girl are in love but their friends don't want them to be together so he wrote this song to show her that they would be together and to tell her to forget what had happened between her friends.
