Bad day, looking for a way
Oh, looking for the great escape
Gets in his car and drives away
Far from all the things that we are
Puts on a smile and breaths it in and breaths it out
He says bye-bye, bye to all of the noise
Oh he says bye-bye bye to all of the noise

Hey child, things are looking down,
That’s OK you don’t need to win anyways
Don’t be afraid just eat up all the gray
And it will fade away
Don’t let yourself fall down

Bad day, looking for the great escape
He says bad day, looking for the great escape
On a bad day, looking for the great escape
Great escape


Brutta giornata, cercando un modo
Oh, cercando la grande fuga
Sale in macchina e se ne va
Lontano da tutte le cose che siamo
Mette su un sorriso, lo inspira ed espira
Dice ciao, ciao a tutto il rumore
Oh, dice addio a tutto il rumore

Hey bambino, le cose stanno andando verso il basso
Va bene, non hai bisogno di vincere comunque
Non aver paura, mangia tutto il grigio
E svanirà
Non lasciarti cadere

Brutta giornata, alla ricerca della grande fuga
Dice brutta giornata, cercando la grande fuga
In una brutta giornata, cercando la grande fuga
Grande fuga


Live 2007
