Living in the same town for all these years
Doing the same old things
Hanging with the same crowd
And its starting to get crippling

Youve never felt in place
And you tell yourself its all okay
But somethings different today
You want to run the opposite way

And it seems like youre locked in a cage
And you need to find a way of escape
When everyone is setting the pace
Its okay to run the opposite way

The Father sent His Son down
The light of men
The cross He bore was crippling
Rejected in His own town
They couldnt see the sun shining

He knelt in the garden and prayed
Father, let this cup pass from me
Its not Your will for me to stay
Your will for me is the opposite way

And it seemed like He was locked in a cage
And He couldnt find a way of escape
But through the cross He conquered the grave
My Jesus ran the opposite way

Oh, and through the cross He conquered the grave
Oh, He ran the opposite way
Yeah, through the cross He conquered the grave
So you could run the opposite way
