Can't Escape Athiisar

No Escape

Tempo Timone’s song

You Can’t Escape Athiisar

I have seen the pits, I have seen the skies,
I have seen the widows, I have seen the flies,
I have seen the forgotten, I have seen their eyes,
I have seen the things that don’t have eyes,

Being here I have one thing to say,
Once in Athiisar, you must always stay
No matter where you go, no matter how far,
You can’t escape Athiisar

The town of criminals, the city of heroes,
The home of nobles, and shack of zeroes
You win some you lose some still you’ve got to stay
Only way to win is if you keep on with the play

Being here I have one thing to say,
Once in Athiisar, you must always stay
No matter where you go, no matter how far,
You can’t escape Athiisar

I’ve seen red shirts, I’ve seen white shirts,
I’ve seen people in grey and black shirts,
Still I know that these people are all same,
they forget to leave the city of a forgotten name,

I know that you know that I know the no,
So, when I come back and fro, to the endless go,
Of the red and the green light, I know I’m in it all,
Since when I try to escape, I can still hear it call.

Being here I have one thing to say,
Once in Athiisar, you must always stay
No matter where you go, no matter how far,
You can’t escape Athiisar

When you want to leave, it will draw you back in,
With its center of depravity and the attraction of sin,
I know the appeal, I know that there are holy spots,
Need them secured and protected for I hear the plots,

Murder and death, the conspiracy it rages,
Death and taxes, still trying to pay the wages,
For devils aren’t cheap, and Fey aren’t stingy,
This city is overcrowded and way to dingy

Being here I have one thing to say,
Once in Athiisar, you must always stay
No matter where you go, no matter how far,
You can’t escape Athiisar

You heard of the band on the Run
House of the setting sun
Hotel California and another brick in the wall
Even if you like pina coladas, you can’t escape Athiisar’s call

The further you are the closer to it you become
No matter what numbers, Athiisar is the sum,
The center of the world and the home of the divine
All beings must draw near to the fruit of the vine

Being here I have one thing to say,
Once in Athiisar, you must always stay
No matter where you go, no matter how far,
You can’t escape Athiisar

You battle and fight it but you won’t succeed,
What you’ve been looking for is what you need,
If you go crazy, or have lost your mind,
Athiisar is sanity and it is where you will find,

All beings, all people, all things you’ve lost,
All battles, all scoundrels, all happiness for a cost,
All troubles, all worries, all things set aside,
All friends, and foes, all those who have died,

Being here I have one thing to say,
Once in Athiisar, you must always stay
No matter where you go, no matter how far,
You can’t escape Athiisar

So you have no choice but to sit there and stay
Or come on down where Devils and Angels play
You can spend your life coin tossing,
Or come on down to the fey crossing,

The choices is yours, you can waste your time,
But I know the decision you will make ain’t a crime,
It is the one I chose and I have yet no regret,
I still remember what I will never forget,

Being here I have one thing to say,
Once in Athiisar, you must always stay
No matter where you go, no matter how far,
You can’t escape Athiisar
