Voiceover / Dialog / Script / Spoken Word

Be prepared to be captivated. Exhilarated. Mystified.  
Everybody wants to escape something.  
Is Harry Houdini your real name? 
It is now. 
Escapes can't get smaller they have to get bigger. 
You're Houdini, right? Look at this. 
That's you and it fills with water. How do you get out? 
You believe in the hero. 
You take him on, you'll stir up a hornet's nest. 
You're a fake! 
See if you can escape. 
I don't want to escape. 
A new and terrible obstacle to my success. 
And what obstacle is that? 
Pull the trigger! 
The obstacle is death. 
(Lyrics) Try to be somebody else 
And try to be the one who helps 
Want to find the one who helps you breathe 
Maybe it's all a big mistake 
And you live on all you take 
From the life that always been close  
I been roaming 'round for hours 
Singing all your songs 
While standing at the edge about to fall 
Heads crushed against the wall 
This sudden fear of change 
This sudden fear is strange 
How in hell can I be safe 
This sudden fear is strange 
The sudden fear of change
