Graffiti decorations
Under a sky of dust
A constant wave of tension
On top of broken trust
The lessons that you taught me
I learn were never true
Now I find myself in question
(They point the finger at me again)
Guilty by association
(You point the finger at me again)

I wanna run away
Never say goodbye
I wanna know the truth
Instead of wond'ring why
I wanna know the answers
No more lies
I wanna shut the door
And open up my mind

Paper bags and angry voices
Under a sky of dust
Another wave of tension
Has more than filled me up
All my talk of taking action
These words were never true
Now I find myself in question
(They point the finger at me again)
Guilty by association
(You point the finger at me again)

I wanna run away
Never say goodbye
I wanna know the truth
Instead of wond'ring why
I wanna know the answers
No more lies
I wanna shut the door
And open up my mind

I'm gonna run away and never say goodbye
(Gonna run away, gonna run away, gonna run away, gonna run away)
I'm gonna run away and never wonder why
(Gonna run away, gonna run away, gonna run away, gonna run away)
I'm gonna run away and open up my mind
(Gonna run away, gonna run away, gonna run away, gonna run away, gonna run away, gonna run away, gonna run away, gonna run away)

I wanna run away
Never say goodbye
I wanna know the truth
Instead of wond'ring why
I wanna know the answers
No more lies
I wanna shut the door
And open up my mind

I wanna run away
And open up my mind
I wanna run away
And open up my mind
I wanna run away
And open up my mind
I wanna run away
And open up my mind

    In my experience it's about being in a relationship being lied to; (on top of broken trust) "I wanna know the truth instead of wandering why i wanna know the answer no more lies" He wants to get out of the relationship but hasn't "i wanna run away..all my take of taking action ,these words were never true" good song ..and as far as being better i disagree ..you tend to appreciate something MORE when you have been threw or experienced it yourself!
