Toyah – Rebel Run lyrics

(Words Willcox / Music Darlow)

Praying to the silent man
A new day dawns behind acetylene tanks
A dog's lament wakes the new age
But falls in splintered fragments around his cage
Like everyone said there'd be
So much more to nineteen eighty-four

Rebel run
Don't shoot your gun
Rebel run
Run run run
Now get down
And stay down
You've gotta learn
To kiss the ground

You see a city we'll watch it fall
We're the hobos of planet's patrol
Lean machines colliding out of control

Rebel run
Don't shoot your gun
Rebel run
Run run run
Now get down
And stay down
You've gotta learn
To kiss the ground

You give me fear, I bring you laughter
Tell your tales ever after
And we'll rise unseen
In the shadows we'll live our dreams

Rebel run
Don't shoot your gun
Rebel run
Run run run
Now get down
And stay down
You've gotta learn
To kiss the ground

You gotta get away, you gotta stay away
Rebel
You gotta get away, you gotta stay away

It's just a power game, it's just a power game
Rebel
You gotta get away, you gotta stay away.
