Undercover of the dark night
Avoid the clattered street lights
And disappear at dawn

Camouflage ourselves to get by
Hiding here in plain sight
Waiting for a sign to come

It’s the lottery of life
We all play to just get by
Some of us escaped
Found a better way, a better life

The ones that got away now
Drifted from the herd
Slip through the fingers of your world

The ones that got away now
Never to return
We left your world to build our own

And off the grid we’re building
Able but unwilling
To bound to this design

There is a light, there is a way out
Safe before we all drown
The boundaries have been redefined

We are products of a place
But our ties have been erased
A wilderness awaits
And lost is something we’ve been trying to find

The ones that got away now
Drifted from the herd
Slip through the fingers of your world

The ones that got away now
Never to return
We left your world to build our own

Gave up our place in line to run
So far away to break free from
This endless race is never won
This endless pace we can’t outrun

The place spanning closer, we keep our composure

We are the ones that got away now,
Drifting from the herd
We are the ones that got away now,
Never to return

And from your clutches we’re escaping,
Yeah, from your grip, we are breaking free

We got away (Ones that got away)
Yeah, got away (Ones that got away)
We got away (Ones that got away), yeah
