Getaway Plan, The - The Reckoning Lyrics

Where have you gone?
I'm like a rabbit down a hole
I can't find you now and I don't think I ever will.
Is it all in vain? Is there a heart beneath the skin?
The truth remains, all you need is hope and you can make it.

Where have you gone?
I'm like a child without a soul
I've got no one else and I don't think I ever will.
But there's something about the way you move.

This is the reckoning, the fight before the tide rolls in.
This is the reckoning and time won't wait for anything.

Where have you gone?
I'm like a rabbit down a hole
I'd cut my wings if I could only have control.
Was it all in vain? Was there a heart beneath the skin?
The truth remains, all you need is hope and you can make it.
Back to where you once belonged
The people that are holding on to everything they saw in you.

This is the reckoning, the fight before the tide rolls in.
This is the reckoning and time won't wait for anything.
This is the reckoning, the fight before the tide rolls in.
This is the reckoning and time won't wait for anything.
This is the reckoning, the fight before the tide rolls in.
This is the reckoning and time won't wait for anything.

Getaway Plan, The The Reckoning Comments
  1. User Deleted

    Are these guys still going? First heard them from the cd inside a music magazine at least 8-9 years ago this song still comes inside my head time to time

  2. Brenzy

    Top notch! Australia needs to produce more bands like this!

  3. Christen Franklin

    His voice tho 😍

  4. Elisa Nocerino

    Amazing song

  5. DefBlue

    Saquen música, perezosos.

  6. Matthew GarettyConnorLinkMetroid

    I read another comment typed in connection with this video. It's not only the intro, of this song, but it all sounds as if it was actually taken from Linkin Park's What I've Become. I hope this band got permission for putting What I've Become into their own song. If not, they are SCREWED.

  7. Billy Trew

    Does anyone know where I can find the piano chords for this song I would love to play it

  8. Imogen Ruby

    Fuck i love them so much.

  9. Emma-Mae Henry

    Fan girling daily - 💖💖 amazing performers live.

  10. Mic Dolphin

    What happened? You guys could have been huge.

  11. Emma-Mae Henry

    fucking love this song , and its even better live <3

  12. Mary Stark

    I've loved this song for 5 years

  13. LittleGreen

    God that music video is strange...

    Shawana Ryals

    Not when you consider the time in which it was filmed. Children were behaving badly and some even hurt adults. Also special note to the fact the children burned a church that our band was playing music in. THe question to be denoted was WHERE WERE THE KIDS PARENTS THEIR WHOLE LIFE


    @Shawana Ryals Wow, didn't know. Funny to come back on this comment 1 year later, guess I was just a bit disturbed by the whole sacrificing of a kid part. Thankyou fo being one for the few on YouTube who respond maturely though :)

  14. krisowOw

    expIain the video, i remember someone did a whiIe back, i think the girI represented innocence and the boy who ran into her represented hope or something, couId be wrong

  15. Shawana Ryals

    I could have watched Matthew at the mic for the whole 3 mins though.  Who am I kidding?  I coulda watched him all day.  HE got the moves.

  16. Shawana Ryals

    Hey did those bad ass kids burn our band!  Hell no, the church failed.  Come back Matthew Wright!  #GetawayPlanfans

  17. Shawana Ryals

    Perfect #MatthewWright

  18. Mitch Rude

    why didn't you guys leave the chapel once it lit on fire, weren't you guys scared of being burned up? shits cray-cray!


    Its called special effects bruz...

    Mitch Rude

    Kodoku Those effects were quite special, indeed!

    Shawana Ryals

    Mitch and miss that fire ass beat?  Did you hear the beat that dropped when the kids started the fire?

    Shawana Ryals

    It was a form of loyalty to the church, they didn't run when shit it the fan.

  19. Ben Pap

    Time won't wait for anything...


    +Ben Sparks music Tempus Edax Rerum

  20. melieD boss

    i love it when u guys go hardcore ;)

    Bonnie Travers

    +blue dolly aka melbrit This isn't hardcore TGP, just saying.

    vasilis vks

    +Bonnie Travers probably meant hardcore as characterism and not a genre

  21. thesamuraiman

    I haven't heard this song in 4 years. I missed it. I knew I had it somewhere on Youtube. :P Great song. Glad I found it again.

  22. Sophie O

    I didn't like this song when I first heard it but after seeing them live I've fallen in love ha. So epic!

  26. Andrew Martin

    How has this not created a storm of controversy? haha, great song!


    Honestly? Because they're not as popular as they should be. :/

    Small Hands

    because they went on hiatus just as they were getting big, it really set them back.

  27. Emerald Jade

    After 5 years of loving them I finally get to see them in September, hells yea.

  28. SophieInDigital

    The Video kind of reminds me of the Hunger Games.... Great song though :)
