Runner

lyrics

How many omens must I see before I go another way?
How many cuts can I get before I learn to change my blade?
How many slates do I need before I learn to keep one clean?
I’ve been reborn ten times today, I’m running out of steam

What will they write about me?
Will there be anything to say?
Here lies another runner never got his shoes laced

I’m not a fighter ’cause my heart isn’t surrendered to the cause
I share the doubt that gives the one undisciplined disciple pause
But I wanna see everything straight now ain’t the time to negotiate
I ain’t gonna stop until every word out of my mouth is wrapped in allelu
Till it’s allelu

What will they write about me?
When I’m dead and gone
Here lies another runner never got his shoes on

But I’m gonna make a change
I swear I’ll be making empty promises as I go to my grave
But I ain’t gonna be no slave
I swear I’ll be making empty promises as I go to my grave
