this song is about desperation.


marching down the boulevard
with a bottle full of rye
westward toward the mountains
while we still have light.

we lost another three last night
our party's growing thin
nobody will say aloud
what we all are thinkin'

and we run
we run

everyone is broken from
this nightmare we are in
we go through all the towns we know
to try to find our kin

we heard about a commune over
high up in the hills
walls around, they're safe and sound
and that is why we still...

we still run
we run

we just passed the water park
it can't be much more now
food is running low, you know,
our time is running out.

and we put all our eggs in this
so we don't have a choice
the scout is back, he's seen the town
is that terror in his voice?

and we run
we run

we lost another seven
only three of us remain
and two of us are scared as hell
that johnnie's gone insane

his eyes are lit with fire now
as he pulls out a gun
that look upon his face
unhinges us and so we run

oh, we run.
we run.
