Well I had a dream that I received a prophecy
Predictions and vision to be written by me
But I didn't want them to come true, I was afraid
So I decided to run away
But what could I run to, where could I go?
If I showed my face, all the angry prophets would know
I rand into the wilderness, ran into the cold
I screamed why, oh why did I ever run away?

Don't disturb those fields of coal
For they may turn to gold
And if they break you, don't let them run away
With your soul

Knights in white lighting shot out of the remote
They said stand and be reckoned, I begged please, let me go
They said uh-uh, no way, you've gotta come true
We can't let you run away

But I was taught by my mother not to do as I was bid
I always tried to do good but I was just a bad kid
They kicked me out of their schools, they didn't like what I did
And since then I've always been a little runaway

Don't disturb those fields of coal
For they may turn to gold
And if they break you, don't let them run away
With your soul

I had a dream that I was an alien
And in a ship of white diamond I was encircling the sun
But the ship lost control, I got too close, and I couldn't turn away
The force of it's gravity sucked me right in
But it didn't burn solid like the other suns did
Inside was a stage and they wanted me to play
I screamed why, oh why? Would you just let me run away?

Don't disturb those fields of coal
For they may turn to gold
And if they break you, don't let them run away
With your soul
