"Escape from the City" (sometimes erroneously called "Follow Me") is the music for the City Escape stage in Sonic Adventure 2. It was composed and arranged by Jun Senoue, with lyrics penned by lead vocalist Ted Poley. Prior to the release of SA2, an instrumental version of this piece is used in Sonic Adventure 2: The Trial. The track also appears on Crush 40's eponymous 2003 album as a bonus track with a slightly different mix.

Two original arrangements appear in Sonic Generations: one by Cash Cash for Act 1 of City Escape and one by Jun Senoue himself for Act 2. The former - titled "Escape from the City - Cash Cash RMX" in the game's soundtrack - includes the melody for "Endless Mine Zone" from Sonic the Hedgehog 3. The latter - dubbed "Escape from the City - Blue Blur RMX" - has Ted Poley return as lead vocalist, includes new lyrics, and incorporates the melody for "It Doesn't Matter", Sonic's theme from Sonic Adventure 2.

Lyrics

Original

Woo!
Oh, yeah

Rolling around at the speed of sound
Got places to go - got to follow my rainbow
Can't stick around - have to keep movin' on
Guess what lies ahead - only one way to find out

Must keep on moving ahead
No time for guessin' - follow my plan instead
Trusting in what you can't see
Take my lead - I'll set you free

Follow me - set me free - trust me
And we will escape from the city
I'll make it through
Follow me (follow me) - set me free - trust me
And we will escape from the city
I'll make it through - prove it to you
Follow me - oh, yeah

Danger is lurking around every turn
Trust your feelings - got to live and learn
I know with some luck that I'll make it through
Got no other options - only one thing to do

I don't care what lies ahead
No time for guessin' - follow my plan instead
Find that next stage no matter what that may be
Take my lead - I'll set you free

Follow me - set me free - trust me
And we will escape from the city
I'll make it through
Follow me (follow me) - set me free - trust me
And we will escape from the city
I'll make it through - prove it to you
Follow me
Follow me
I'll make it through - oh, yeah

Woo!

No time for guessin' - follow my plan instead
Trusting in what you can't see
Take my lead - I'll set you free

Follow me - set me free - trust me
And we will escape from the city
I'll make it through
Follow me (follow me) - set me free - trust me
And we will escape from the city
I'll make it through - prove it to you
Follow me - oh, yeah

Danger is lurking around every turn
Trust your feelings - got to live and learn
I know with some luck that I'll make it through
Got no other options - only one thing to do

I don't care what lies ahead
No time for guessin' - follow my plan instead
Find that next stage no matter what that may be
Take my lead - I'll set you free

Follow me (follow me) - set me free - trust me
And we will escape from the city

Follow me
Follow me
