FantasticYouth “Un-Reality Escape” Lyrics
Lyrics by LowFat, Sung by Onyu
This world is full of so many things that are truly unreal
Everyday reality just isn’t real… A first and final vacant space
No fear of failure, you can always hit Ctrl-Z in a pinch
The cables that connect everything are severed, and we’re better off that way
However, one day we’ll realize
That nothing will come out of this world
A meaningless world that spirals on into an endless and eternal paradise
Going out in search of meaning isn’t always the right course of action
But there’s definitely possibility there
Stand… walk… run… take flight!
So escape the unreality, escape this unreality
Don’t let it unravel like the laces on unfamiliar shoes
From here, escape the unreality, escape this unreality
To a place that shines brighter than light
Go somewhere to, escape the unreality, escape this unreality
Like playing a part in a comedy special
Escape the unreality, escape this unreality
Run and get away to truly live today
