Escape Artist

I am an artist
Of the grand escape
I have never been captured
And never will be
Go ahead try me
Open the coffin
Look deeper inside
Take in the view
There is nothing there
What were you expecting to find?
I told you I was going to do it
This life enslaved me
It became the chains
Around my flesh
Wounding me
Bleeding me
This existence was the thorn
In my side
But I have listened
To the silent voice
I have waited
For the answers
Others are
Asleep to the power
However I've been listening
I have made my soul quiet
I have been praying for my time
I've been awake
I laid claim to my blood promise
My legacy
And I've escaped
