    Lyrics

    Heading for the great escape
    Heading for the rave
    Heading for the permanent holiday

    Heading for the winter trip
    Heading for the slide
    Heading for the dignified, walk away

    Heading for the open road
    Goodbye to all that
    Heading for the automatic overload

    Standing in the open porch
    Standing in the swing
    Waiting for the ringing and the bright light

    Waiting to be recognized
    Quiet applause will do
    They shower you with flowers when they bury you

    You're holding on, you're holding on

    Just when I thought I'd seen the last of you
    You come here scratching at my door
    Your pain and anger's in the howling dark
    Of every corridor I walk

    So tell me more about the love that you rejected
    Tell me more about the trust you disrespected
    I still don't know, why did you hurt the very one
    Why did you hurt the very one that you should have protected?

    Heading for the great escape
    Heading for the rave
    Heading for the permanent holiday

    Heading for the high cloud nine
    Heaven number seven
    Heading for the long goodbye

    Uncurl the fingers that hold
    Summon the strength to let go
    Out of the tired world, out of the upset
    Into the sunset
