Escape hatch

Where did it all go wrong
It's a disaster
The paint is peeling off the walls
Down to bare plaster

Do you hear the jungle drums
Warn of an attacker?
They confuse your senses dull
Your pulse is racing faster

I can't get the escape hatch open
Be careful which way it swings
I'm not certain but I'm hoping
Beware the doll that sings

Where did it all go wrong?
The woods are becoming soundless
We're jumping in dry leaves
While mute panic surrounds us

Where did it all go wrong?
I thought we'd planned it better
She wanted to stay out night
But her parents wouldn't let her

I can't get the escape hatch open
Be careful which way it swings
The deck is soaked, the latch is broken
The gates of hell are string

When did it all go wrong?
You were fucking a cheerleader
Because she'd cheer you on
No matter how you'd treat her

When did it all go south?
This storm is a disaster
Stop here and hear me out
I thought I could out last her

I can't get the escape hatch open
I took a pill for block the sun
I took another and now i'm hoping
To forget that you're the one

I can't get the escape hatch open
All other options are closed
I can't get the escape hatch open
We weren't safe, we weren't even close.
