lyrics

If it’s not too much trouble
I think I’m done being alone
For the dirt and the earth, they call my body home
They cuddle with my bones
And gone the spirit’s flown

It’s midnight forever, I haunt this empty hole
And the neon walkways, where once roamed my soul
I feel the thunder roll
And living takes it toll

When darkness claws at the edge of sunlight
And the roar of cannon fire splits the night
And dying’s the only thing left to do
I might believe in miracles, but I won’t believe in you

You can see me running for my life
Kicking up trails in the pale moonlight
I hear the devil, he cry
I long for your touch, but my senses dun lie

Cause if I’m in hell there’s got to be at least one of you near
It would appear the end has just begun
You can see it down the river, it is deep as it is wide
The ferryman's not charging anyone

Eternity’s clawing at the edge of my eye
I want to scream and let my trampled spirit fly
Running’s the only thing left to do
The temperature’s unbearable, but I love all of you

Each damn night, well they tear me to pieces
And in the morning make me whole again
And if I fight, they won’t ever leave me
You’ll always break if you don’t bend

So see me running for my life
Kicking up trails in the pale moonlight
I hear the devil, she cry
I long for your touch, but my senses dun lie
Once more, hang my head low
Stranded on the ground where the angels don’t go
Last time over the top
They’re dancing in the sky, but my running don’t stop

See me run
