Yeah, it's still the same
Can't you feel the pain
When the needle hits the vein
Ain't nothing like the real thing
I've seen it once before
And oh, it's something else
Good god

Cool breeze come on in
Sunshine come on down
These are
The tear drops of the clown
Circus is coming to town
All I'm saying is sometimes
I'm more scared of myself
You better
Move
I said
Move

Runaway
Runaway
Run children
Run for your life
Runaway
Runaway
Run children
Here it comes
I said run
Alright

Yeah I'm on the run
See where I'm coming from
When you see me coming run
Before you see
What I'm running from
No time for question
Asking time is passing by
Alright

You can’t win child
We’ve all tried to

You’ve been lied to
It’s all ready inside you
Either you run right now
Or you best
Get ready to die
You better
Move
I said
Move

Runaway
Runaway
Run children
Run for your life
Runaway
Runaway
Run children
Ooh
Here it comes
I said run

Hurry little children
Run this way
I have got a beast at bay
La, la, la
La, la, la, la
La, la, la
La, la, la
La, la, la, la
La, la, la,
La, la
La, la, la
La, la
Runaway
Runaway
Run children
Run for your life
Runaway
Runaway
Run children
Here it comes
Said run

    Wow, these lyrics could be interpreted in so many ways, a trait of gb's that's wondeful. For me at least. It's pretty much about. Um. Indocrination. As far as what type of "indocrination" I suppose you can pick your poison. The lies and misinformation that our heads are buried in are the same ones that can potentially mold and shape the minds of the young, the future etc. Like the lyric says/sings: "you've been lied to/it's already inside you". At least that's the first thing that came to my mind after reading the song. If you're reading this then you must be as bored as I am. Gb. Great stuff as usual.
