Anthrax – Anyplace But Here Lyrics

Beneath by breath you take

Still you’re gasping for air

Miles and miles you move

Into abyss you stare

Running form the plight

Mighty grip it’s hold

And that hunger’s hanging on

But never to the fold

With endurance

As the earth behind you burns

You can feel heat

Keep your will and never turn

Come on, follow closely

Come on, end this slavery

Come on, where you’re going

Any place but here

And you pray for more hope

So this will run it’s course

Every day you move

Handcuffs they lose their force

Abandon all you know

So destitution hides

United in despair

Still makes it harder to divide

With exhaustion

As the earth behind you melts

You can feel heat

But your need for living fails

A logical reason for being

Is quickly drifting away

People prove fiendishly greedy

Each time you try to believe

It’s hard to be defiant

There’s ways to kill the giant

Slaughtered by pins
