Not My Exit 03:25
For the people I don't care about The ones I know and can do without You know who you are I'm so much more, much more than this I've left my past behind in the evening mist I'm better now by far You can take this anchor And the weight behind you And throw it away With all the years I've spent afraid 'Cause I won't sink, I will keep on rising We're not falling for all the goddamn lies About how it's all too much to take We'll keep on fighting for our own sake I'll stand up, I'll face it 'Cause this is not my exit They all say: "You're old and overrated Give up move on give in and fade away You're wasting all your time" Stuck inside all their past mistakes Lost in the woods without a path to take We can make it out alive 'Cause I won't sink, I will keep on rising We're not falling for all the goddamn lies About how it's all too much to take We'll keep on fighting for our own sake I'll stand up, I'll face it 'Cause this is not my exit All I know is what I don't know 'Cause I won't sink, I will keep on rising We're not falling for all the goddamn lies About how it's all too much to take We'll keep on fighting for our own sake I'll stand up, I'll face it 'Cause this is not my exit

I wonder if they'll ever find we're out here The colors stretch as far as I can see And I'm feeling like the lot of us will die here But at least I know it's not all up to me The hull is taking on all sorts of pressure And at any moment it's all about to breach So get your women and your children all out of here Before there's no air left for them to breathe I'll find a way to keep you safe From everything that we have made For today we'll hideaway I'll keep the light on til we're safe Captain, I've been thinking of our time here How oxygen is all we really need The deck is now our graveyard and we all fear That death is coming sooner than we believe So gather up your family and your belongings The fire makes it hard for us to see And if god herself had word in all that's happening She'd say earth is where the human race should be I'll find a way to keep you safe From everything that we have made For today we'll hideaway I'll keep the light on til we're safe Flying high at night, we found the light It burned our eyes I'll keep you safe
