Escape is a tribute to AC / DC and Deep Purple from The Tølks. The dynamics of the song are reminiscent of the golden age songs of those bands, where a motorcycle crashes through a scorching desert.
The song scrapes a memorable riff on the side of nowadays such a smooth rockenroll. The song confuses the listener, as the initial assumption of a criminal fleeing a crime scene changes from a side to side as the singer goes through an inner Inferno. The end result remains to be guessed by the listener. Despite the darkness of the words, the song proclaims “only the riff matters”.
