Alan Parsons Project – Take The Money And Run lyrics

Stuart Elliot vocal

Ask yourself a question now there's a multiple choice
"You've only one shot, get it right", says a distance voice
Don't get your head into a spin
If only you could see the mess you're in
The enemy is closing in see the white of his eye
He's taking in his prey in sight it's just a matter of time
May the games begin the best man win
If only you could see the mess you're in

Is it the pride in you that wont let go
Is it the fool that wont let it show

Free yourself
If only you could see yourself
If you could see yourself

And when the heavens opened up and the walls come tumbling down
You know there is the only place to go
And when you've had enough of fighting
And every mean trick under the sun
But still you fear the worst is yet to come
Take the money and run

Count the bottles one by one as they fall to the ground
Search your mind your heart your soul until the answer is found
But watch your step the ice is thin
If only you could see the mess you're in

The man in black looks down on you the insignificant one
To be or not if all so true the deal is almost done
It matters not you're lost to him
If only you could see the mess you're in

Is it the pride in you that wont let go
Is it the fool that wont let it show?

Free yourself
If only you could see yourself
If you could see yourself

And when the heavens opened up and the walls come tumbling down
You know it is the only place to go
And when you've had enough of fighting
And every mean trick under the sun
But still you fear the worst is yet to come
Take the money and run
