"No time for goodbye" he said
As he faded away
Don't put your life in someone's hands
They're bound to steal it away
Don't hide your mistakes
"Cause they'll find you, burn you"
Then he said

If you want to get out alive
Run for your life
If you want to get out alive
Run for your life


"This is my last time" she said
As she faded away
"It's hard to imagine
But one day you'll end up like me"
Then she said

If you want to get out alive
Run for your life
If you want to get out alive
Run for your life
If you want to get out alive (If you want to get out alive)
Run for your life (Life)
If you want to get out alive (If you want to get out alive)
Run for your life

If I stay it won't be long
Till I'm burning on the inside
If I go I can only hope
That I'll make it to the other side

If you want to get out alive
Run for your life
If you want to get out alive
Run for...

If you want to get out alive (If you want to get out alive)
Run for your life
If you want to get out alive (If you want to get out alive)
Run for...

If I stay, it won't be long
Till I'm burning on the inside
If I go I can only hope
That I'll make it to the other side
If I stay, it won't be long
Till I'm burning on the inside
If I go, if I go

Burning on the inside
Burning on the inside
Burning on the inside

    yea, this song could be about religion, i guess, but it fits a lot of other things as well... like a destructive habit or something. "don't put your life in someone's hands theyre bound to steal it away"... i think ppl who say that are either lying or don't realize what a burden it would be to have someone completely and utterly rely on u, and so they let u down w/out meaning to.

    If you want to avoid temptation and thus live your life unchained, then run for your life away from the bad things that tempt you so.
