He tried to escape once in a balloon.
He tried to escape once in a balloon.
On the foggiest day he decided not to stay.
The ground below held his life not long ago.
And through the fog the ground, it disappeared.

He felt he had made it and starts to come down.
A crowd of people that followed were cheering loud.
But then something went wrong and he couldn't get back anywhere.
And then he landed just inside the gates. the ??carried him away.
