Go ahead and run away you've got one foot in the noose
Go ahead and run away, act like you've got nothing to lose
Well the the people of this world, Yeah they're singing their own songs
And my friend, there's just some chords that don't get along

Take someone for all they're worth and never let 'em know who you are
Take someone for all they're worth, take every penny left in the jar
Well the people of this world, yeah they just don't realize
How different everything looks when you open your eyes
Yeah the world looks so much different...

So survive this, don't deny it
You know the flood is coming, so you better start running now
Before it's too late, it's too late baby
I don't believe that everyone is out to get me
I do not believe in anything

Break the human spirit down and let 'em see their life from a desk
You gotta clock those hours, son you'll die before they give you a rest
Well the people of this world, yeah they're begging to be free
Free from all these debts and slavery
But Freedom has its victims

Red sky at night, oh the hills are alive
With the sounds of our mistakes, so loud the levy's gonna break
Will you make it out alive this time?
