Get me out of this place, before I cause more damage,
A small price to pay for building houses out of matchsticks;
And when things get too hot, you've got me to blame for,
Every fire that breaks out in every lover's name

Don't forget, we've got unfinished business,
Stories yet to unfold,
Tales that must be retold,
And I regret not knowing when to put an end to all this madness,
Keeps me wanting,
Keeps me wanting more...

Sell me out I'm yesterday's old news,
Phrases left on paper,
Black ink bleeding through
The pages where we made our history.
Call me foolish,
I feel helpless.

Running from lions, (Like a deer in the headlights)
Never felt like such a mistake(I won't know what hit me...)3x
Running from lions never felt like such a...

Don't forget, we've got unfinished business,
Stories yet to unfold,
Tales that must be retold,
And I regret not knowing when to put an end to all this madness,
Keeps me wanting,
Keeps me wanting,
Keeps me wanting,
Keeps me wanting more...

    "running from lions never felt like such a mistake" I think that means that you can'y run from your problem because you'll never get away, and you'll always have a better chance facing them.

    i think this song is about how people try to run and hide from their problems , then they just get really big kind of like lions (nice analogies Alex) , then they come out and they bite you in the ass, ha so it's kind of like running from problems was the dumbest thing to do!

    but i really like this song , it's good

    it's like running away from your problems.. like when you lie, and you have to continue to lie until it becomes a huge mess.
