Exodus (3:07)

Cover of Special 2004

From Special 2004 and 8 other releases

Exodus is one of Evanescence’s earliest recorded songs. It was released on the Evanescence EP in December 1998. It should be noted that Amy Lee plays the piano on this track as David Hodges didn’t join the band until December 1999.

The live performance from May 7th, 1999 features lyrics from “Missing” at the end, and the song features a guitar in the beginning.

Amy talked about the song on EvThreads, saying:

“…Its just hard because you’re your own worst critic and I hear myself say “my black backpack stuffed with broken dreams” and want to shoot myself. I seriously can’t listen to the verses to that song without squinting. But I don’t deny that there was a magic in those early songs. Each one was so exciting to us, we were just learning that we had the ability to make our favorite music”

My black backpack stuffed with broken dreams
Twenty bucks should get me through the week
Never said a word of discontentment
Fought it a thousand times but now I'm leaving home
