The Exit (feat. Brendon Urie and Dan Young) Lyrics

Forgive Durden - The Exit

 

Look at that which surrounds me

I'm supposed to call this home

The dark has become so overwhelming

So why don't I just go

Why can't you just be more like your brother?

Together you would rule the throne

Evil and darkness would grow

This kingdom needs you

"Why can't you just be more like Pallis?" they always ask

Could this feeling deep in me be the prophecy?

As a child I heard such wonderful stories

Of lamps, and the oracle, and holy the sea

Silly boy, you speak of fiction

Silly boy, you can't just leave them

Reaching for some fairy tale ending

Myth or legend

Oh, what's the use maybe they're right

What's the point of dreaming

If it can never materialize?

 

Townsfolk are ashamed

Why can't I live up to my family name?

Well it's not me,

But you see it's just my pedigree

You're a reckless and romantic rogue

Your head is in the clouds

You'll be chained here all your life

Shackled to the ground

You're not the chosen one

Don't you ever dream of some place better

Or a life that's greater

Don't you ever feel like you've been destined

For something bigger than your skin?

 

You are so foolish

The dark has been your home

If you elope, I'll hunt you

Through suffering you'll atone

Dear Pallis, you're my brother

You looked and watched over me

But there's something bigger at stake

My purpose is this journey

Brother, you are shortsighted

Naive and starry-eyed

You are not the chosen one

This will be your demise

Brother, I can't help this feeling

My heart tells me to run

You were meant to rule the dark

I was meant to see the sun

Don't you ever dream of some place better

When the light shines brighter?

Don't you ever feel like you've been destined

For something bigger than your skin?

I think I'll just go

 

"Adakias, tired of fiction

And bound by his ambition

Left his home for the city of light

Disguised as a citizen

His identity was hidden

Within in a city that sat glistening

He was eager for his new life

He contemplated and hated

Why had he waited for so long

To flee his home forever shaded,

Where the jaded are never wrong?

He took a deep breath

He was finally gone

His hope was left strong

That a meaning would be found

That had kept him withdrawn

His stare had caught a light

And he fell for the sight

Her name was Princess Anhura

She suffered from the same strife

And like Adakias,

She spent most of her time

Dreaming of a different life."

Don't you ever feel like you've been destined

For something bigger than your skin?
