Lyrics

She's been sitting up in that tree house for years
She's been looking out over and over the great white wall
Crossing roadblocks and running red lights in her mind
She's tired of manicured lawns this high life that seems so fine
She's wondering what is out there for years
She's been pondering scheming planning her great escape
Breaking barriers and bribing guards inside her mind
She's tired of manicured lawns this high life that seems so fine

Time is ticking and the train is leaving
World is changing she won't let it pass her by
So goodbye to this island prison
I will give her both my helping hands
Time is ticking and the train is leaving
World is changing she won't let it pass her by
So goodbye to this island prison
I will give her both my helping hands

We've got a plan to break out of this Alkatraz Garden
Blueprints and road maps on the ready
We've got a plan to break out of this Alkatraz Garden
Blueprints and road maps on the ready

Time is ticking and the train is leaving
World is changing she won't let it pass her by
So goodbye to this island prison
I will give her both my helping hands
Time is ticking and the train is leaving
World is changing she won't let it pass her by
So goodbye to this island prison
I will give her both my helping hands
Time is ticking and the train is leaving
World is changing she won't let it pass her by
So goodbye to this island prison
I will give her both my helping hands
I will give here both my helping hands
I will give here both my helping hands
Yeah

Listen
It has begun
The sayer has spoken and the seeress sees
The earth will shift it's tilt and the past will be spilt
Her skin will fault to shed molten tracks
Where the change train will come rolling in
Like a resolute teardrop
Tracing down a jagged face
Spewing fumes of absolution
A smouldering head's revolt
It's breaks have failed
Momentum upscaled
Pearl shaped wheels crush brazen bullets
Winding whips and scarlet lizard tongued invective in their wake
Listen
Her journey has begun
Without fear
Without a shake
