09. Run Away

by Psalm


I wish that I could run away
To another place
Somewhere far away
And the world keeps spinning me upside down
Head off in the ground feet in the clouds
This road I walk alone
Iíll never get too far
But I wanna run away

I sometimes wish that I could run away
So far away, go all the way
I sometimes wish that I could run away
Just get away, so far away

And so I run and I run so far
Eventually got to come back but it can be so hard
Been a long year strong here arenít you
Funny how the dark can haunt you
Better know when to fold when to hold when you go cause a lonely soul will taunt you
So I push through this nausea and the tension sets a fire
Enrage and cage this monster and let me testify
To rectify my wrongs and sanctify my rights
All I really got are psalms and sweaty palms and restless nights
Been blinded by the light so many times but now I see
The biggest obstacle I have to get around is me
So drown and sink or pound my feet and try to make a way
Donít know what to call him but thank him for every breath I take today
And maybe this instant I feel like Iím lost
In front a river I canít get across
Will no one deliver me safe in my journey
Take all my bitterness anger and hurting
Father forgive me cause down here itís different
Getting so caught in the way that Iím living
Maybe one day I can change up the pace and Iíll just get away
But until then Iím wishing


And so I run and I run so quick
To get away from my problems in every moment
To justify every action that I was caught in
And every right that was wronged and every past sin
See everything that Iíve done and everything that Iíve had
I stayed away from the good and always strayed to the bad
Yo when youíre young as a youth you ainít that competent
You think these actions you take there ainít no consequence
So full of confidence
This world your conquering
But when youíre conjuring it
Just use your conscience kid.
Donít be another knuckle head on the ground
With your face getting pounded and your brains leaking out
Yeah I remember back in the day
Yeah back when I would say
Yo Jesse James you never gone change
And then you look into the mirror like 10 years later
You see yourself looking back, you ainít much greater itís like


Iíll run away
Just get away
So far away
Just get away
