If you could run 
From yourself 
How far would you get, 
Would you recognize 
You hadn't gone far enough 
Till your shadows 
Behind you, 
And your thoughts 
At your side 
Where could you go, 
And where would you hide 
Go on, 
I swear, 
I dare you 
To run like the wind 
Run with a fire, 
Run with the fuel 
Of the belief 
That you could escape 
From the one person; 
Burn some energy, 
But you'll spot you in a crowd 
In a quiet corner 
When everything else is loud 
Run I tell you, 
How many states did you get, 
Until you realise 
You hadn't gone far enough yet
