I can't run but
I can walk much faster than this
Can't run but

I can't run but
I can walk much faster than this
Can't run but

A cooling system
Burns out in the Ukraine
Trees and umbrellas
Protect us from the new rain

Armies of engineers
To analyze the soil
The food we contemplate
The water that we boil

I can't run but
I can walk much faster than this
Can't run but

I can't run but
I can walk much faster than this
Can't run but

I had a dream about us
In the bottles and the bones of the night
I felt a pain in my shoulder blade
'Twas like a pencil point, a love bite

A couple was rubbing against us
Rubbing and doing that new dance
The man was wearing a jacket and jeans
The woman was laughing in advance

I can't run but
I can walk much faster than this
Can't run but

I can't run but
I can walk much faster than this
Cannot run but

A winding river
Gets wound around a heart, pull it
Tighter and tighter
Until the muddy waters part

Down by the river bank
A blues band arrives
The music suffers, baby
The music business thrives, oh

I can't run but
I can walk much faster than this
Cannot run but

I can't run but
I can walk much faster than this
Can't run but
