Run
Run far away

And take nothing with you
Leave it all behind
To where the language is different
And nobody cares about your appearance or facial expressions
Far from the responsibility you’ve assumed
Far from the things you’d need to change

Run
Run far away

Put some distance between the scene of your failures and you
Don’t bother trying to change
Because you’d be different and nothing else would be
Sacrifice the trust and concern
And live without the love
It hurts, but you know how

Run
Run far away

Find a quiet sunny garden in Japan or Northern Spain
Where you could think deep thoughts
And have no one calling for you
No one will witness your inability to act
No one will worry that you’re headed off the tracks
You will have lost everything you’ve ever gained
And you’ll finally be alone

Run
Run far away
See how far you’ll get.
