Originally released October 31, 2017. At the end of 2019 this song was refreshed for 2020. Also, this is the extended version of the song.

"Killer track!" - Charlie Mason Radio.

“Vacant” has a thrashy punk attack mixed with a shitkicking metal backbone and a rhythmic synthetic vibe. The song begins with a guitar that sounds like its positively snarling. The bass bumps and the drums drive everything along while being backed up by electronic sonic textures. The vocal screams drive it over the edge and then soften up to a light whisper giving it the flavor of classic horror movie inspired metal music." - The Music Butcher.

"We love this new track by Escape To What! (Vacant single) Very promising, heavy and diverse talent coming from the North East." - Spotlight Music UK

"There's a definite theatrical element to Escape To What...
...yet this cut (Vacant single) from the debut album Exit Wounds delivers gamely on his promise of a blood-soaked scream for help.
...for sheer impenetrable bleakness it gets the thumbs up." - NARC Magazine (issue 136)

Thank you for listening and for the support


I can feel all their eyes
Looking down onto me
Making me feel Subservient
I can feel every little touch of them poking me
Trying to make me feel like I’m nothing at all

Everyone ridicules - Everyone makes me feel
Dead inside - I got nothing
Everyone - can fuck right off

Kill me now - Kill me slow
This in between - You hypocrite
You made me feel - What a show
Let me bleed - On the floor

Don’t you dare - Hesitate
Pull the trigger - Let it go
Can you care? - Suffocate
In my dreams - I fade away

I am - So lost
I am - Empty
I am - Nothing
I am - Drowning
VACANT - what am I?
VACANT - Where am I?
VACANT - Who am I?
VACANT - What do you want?

I will never - Be the one
That you want - Move away
Never fill - This emptiness
Inside of me - My vacant core

You left me so empty and alone in the dark
How am I supposed to continue from here?
