Audience Of One

I can still remember the words and what they meant
As we etched them with our fingers in years of wet cement
Days blur into each other though everything seemed clear
We cruised along at half speed but then we shifted gears

We ran like vampires from a thousand burning suns
But even then we should have stayed

But we ran away now all my friends are gone
Maybe we've outgrown all the things that we once loved
Run away, what are we running from ?
A show of hands from those in this audience of one
Where have they gone?

Identities assume us as nine and five add up
Synchronizing watches to the seconds that we lost
And I looked up and saw you, I know that you saw me
We froze but for a moment in empathy

I brought down the sky for you but all you did was shrug
You gave my emptiness a name

And you ran away now all my friends are gone
Maybe we've outgrown all the things that we once loved
Runaway what are we running from?
A show of hands from those in this audience of one
Where have they gone?

We're all okay until the day we're not
The surface shines while the inside rots
We raced the sunset and we almost won
We slammed the brakes but the wheels went on
We ran awaynow all my friends are gone
Maybe we've outgrown all the things that we once loved
Runaway now all my friends are gone
Maybe we've outgrown all the things that we once loved
Runaway what are we running from?
A show of hands from those in this audience of one
Where have they gone?
