lyrics

Run and Hide

A mind's a terrible thing to waste
At this pace we’ll use it up in haste dear
Too much in this life’s dramatic
Had to pull back from this static
Automatic systematic
Hold us down and it’s all emphatic
Shelter in, but can’t stay in place
So you think about changing states
Of matter going from gas to liquid.
Vapors got me on chase.
Can we talk about it?

I never thought there’d be the day
You’d pack and leave and go away to, I feel,
A place with greener pastures
I admit we’ve been disastrous
All along I thought we’d pass this
But I guess you don’t share this last
Assessment of this place and time
So you’re all about face and I’m
Caught up keeping up chase and time
Is tick ticking away.

You can run and hide this time
But you’ll find
She may not let you back into
Her arms again, so just be smart my friend.

They say it's never coming back
(To what to whom? Too late too soon?)
That glam and glitz is in the past, dear
(For what for whom? For what for whom?)
How about these streets that write
Stories complete with no fleet no flight
Energy feeds with that beat so right
You can’t compete with this feat in light
Of what was taken away from us
People calling it dangerous
And now it’s finally estranging us
This change in us, it won’t fade.
So let’s talk about it.


Remember this wish list
When you render this?
Reminisce, dismiss
when you tendered this
resignation that we face in under 2 weeks
notice, flow this like it’s Unique
Ason -  based on 
how you’re feeling with your raison
d’etre and your maison
Exhausted nearly lost it, offset the losses,
Tossed it at cost and I’m all set
Don’t it matter bout the memories we made here?
Won’t it matter when the inspiration stays here?
I’ma stick around getting ready for the comeback
When the day comes, hit us hard like a
Drum track


You can run and hide this time
But you’ll find
She may not let you back into
Her arms again, so just be smart my friend.


You’re late to state that you just lost belief
Hate the fate that you were called to leave 
and I’m…. blind-sided by your lack
of faith, no turning back,
foundation’s bout to crack
and I’m about not keeping track
of where we head from here
separate ways for separate fears
Every day ain't coming unless you’re here

You can run and hide this time
But you’ll find
She may not let you back into
Her arms again, so just be smart my friend.
