prattle

The voices that ricochet off the walls
Are all that let me know I'm alive

I work for Keyser Soze.

How come everybody wanna keep it like a kaiser?

While the rest of them dudes was a gettin' their kicks,
kindly beg your pardon, I was gettin' mine.

Write me back, Fucker.
---------------

You can never run too far.
You can never run too fast.
If you run away from your memories
Only the pain will last.

I ran away from her.
I ran away from me.
I ran away from everyone
Afraid of what they'd see.

I ran away from hope.
I ran away in fear.
I ran away from everything
That I ever held dear.

I could never seem to escape.
I could never seem to get away.
Until I learned to forget the past,
And then everything was okay.

I wasn't running for happiness.
I wasn't running to stay sane.
I was running to stay out of breath.
I was running for the pain.

Pain
lets
me
know
I'm
alive
It's
what
I
need
to
survive

I run
My lungs burn
My chest heaves
And I yearn

When I run
I breathe
That's the most
I hope to achieve
