Anybody else? I mean.. I don't actually cry but toward the part at the very end at 5:55 (off the Death and all his friends track) When he starts going "ooooooo"


Ahhh! its so sad! lol Anybody else get sad when they listen to this song?

I've teared up to the song in general not just the end.

It’s depressing because it’s so true. Trying to make an escape from life, it’s what Coldplay is famous for in my opinion, taking a really serious and complex subject and summing it up in a simple yet deep and emotional way.

in one and unique sentence, yes. We dream in the need to scape from this heavy reality (maybe playing music too :) )

It doesn't make me cry, but it makes me think about life, death, being alone, being in a relationship, etc.

I actually love that song...

Yes, this song makes me cry quite a bit.
Same with 'Death And All His Friends'
A lot of Coldplay songs make me cry, to be honest.

i get that weird tingly feeling everytime i listen to the escapist.
if ive ever cried while listening to it, its because its just such a great ending to an album. optimistic but final at the same time, you know?

Songs very rarely make me cry, but it's indeed a very powerful tune! And a bit sad, as well.

The Escapist is incredible and I'm more than glad that it's the ending song of the album. Everytime I listen to it I picture myself lying on the grass, looking at the sky and dreaming :) I dunno why, but it gives me the impression that everything is going to be ok.
I think it works differently with me. I don't really see it as sad, or depressing. Actually, I find it sort of up-lifting :)

Yes. As you can tell I love the last set of lyrics in it. It's so sad but uplifting at the same time you know? I probably sound nuts but someone will get me :D
