    I feel this should've been the first single, but that's neither here nor there. All I know is this is my favorite PJ song in a long time. Maybe even since Binaural.

    Yeah it's like listening to Cochise open up Audioslave's self-titled.

    My 1st thought was  RATM so I hear what you are saying with Audioslave.

    My 2nd thought was that Quick Escape would have fit perfectly on Vitalogy.  Tremor Christ all grown up or Tremor Christ on steroids

    Tremor Christ is one of my absolute favorites, haven't made that connection yet though. I'll go listen back to back

    I've come to enjoy Tremor Christ more over the years.  Definitely in my top 10 of deep cuts.

    anyone seen or posted the lyrics?  

    I like it a lot.  I love the weight of the music.  Heavy. Ominous.  Really poignant.

    Love it! The ending kicks ass.

    Lyrics I found online:

    Reconnaissance on the corner
    In the old world, not so far
    First we took an aeroplane
    Then a boat to Zanzibar

    Queen cranking on the blaster
    And Mercury did rise
    Came along where we all belonged
    You were yours and I was mine

    Yeah, yeah

    (Had to) Quick escape
    (Had to) Quick escape
    (Had to) Quick escape
    (Had)

    Crossed the border to Morocco
    Kashmir to Marrakech
    The lengths we had to go to then
    To find a place Trump hadn't fucked up yet

    Living life on the back porch
    Lifting rocks to make a wage
    Every sunset paid attention to
    Not a starry night went to waste

    (Had to) Quick escape
    (Had to) Quick escape
    (Had to) Quick escape

    And here we are, the red planet
    Craters across the skyline
    A sleep sack in a bivouac
    And a Kerouac sense of time

    Oh, and we think about the old days
    Of green grass, sky and red wine
    Should've known, so fragile
    And avoided this one-way flight

    (Had to) Quick escape
    (Had to) Quick escape
    (Had to) Quick escape
    (Had to)

    I like that these are not really sing along songs, they are just full force rock songs. Good stuff

    I've been listening to the album for the past week and this has been the standout track for me.  The only frustrating thing has been that I don't have the lyrics, and a lot of Eddie's singing on the album (including on "Quick Escape") has, shall we say, lacked enunciation, and this has made it hard to catch quite a few of the lyrics.  I was really excited to see this video and to see that the closed captions are actually correct (but for about three inexplicable spelling errors-- "Queen on the blasten"?), and now I can appreciate this song even more.
