Runaways Lyrics

by The Karma Killers

[Usher]
Outside there's a runaway,
The lights go down, the world goes rushing in.
Neon light takes the light of day,
Stars like dust start falling.
Inside there's a loneliness,
The demon tries to charm you with his smile.
No time to dream or rest,
In the caves of steel, faces are changing

[Far East Movement]
On the street the traffic dies,
The break of day, it always comes too soon.
Running out of reasons why
All your life you blamed it on the moon.
Look out for the danger signs,
You're stealing time but you know you'll never win.
Another border line
Nightmares chase the dreams away,
The cold night reflects the way you feel.
It's just another town,
It's just one more night to kill
It's time to rethink every fact that is imaginable
Survival instinct dwells in a past that is inhabitable
I happen to pull fast ones over the slow parole board
Who likes to speak to de-fanged wolves who cry sheep
Time seeps into our skin, age indicates how long we've been lost in space
I keep putting expression-less upon my face

[Usher]
Outside there's a runaway,
The lights go down, the world goes rushing in.
Neon light takes the light of day,
Stars like dust start falling.
Inside there's a loneliness,
The demon tries to charm you with his smile.
No time to dream or rest,
In the caves of steel, faces are changing

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, runaways
Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, runaways
No spring chicken, summer romance novel writer could win a prize
It's Nobel, go to hell in a riding vehicle that he winterized
Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, runaways

[The Karma Killers]
The land of the lost souls
Feeling the loneliness that really only exists in abandoned foster homes
How many images of missing kids can be fit onto a milk carton?
Framed, they're starting to look the same
Starting to say his name, and claim privileges
As if they found HIM!
The strangest little kids surrounding the circle of false friendship
Rings of fire are connected at the elbow
Cause they're tired, moms unexpectedly let go
The Velcro light component that keeps there unit cohesive
It's the music! So we give reasons to get sober
Life experiences to hum to
These kids play Red Rover? I look for weaknesses to run through
With reckless abandon, they're standin', refuse to go down
The pinballs in their machine bounce between abusive homes now
If its fight or flight, they'll just choose to throw down
Ain't nothing like beating a dead horse, riding it through a ghost town
I move with no sound... I used to think I was invisible

[Usher]

Stars like dust start falling.

The demon tries to charm you with his smile.
No time to dream or rest,
In the caves of steel, faces are changing

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, runaways
Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, runaways
No spring chicken, summer romance novel writer could win a prize
It's Nobel, go to hell in a riding vehicle that he winterized
Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, runaways

[Far East Movement]
Til they stopped me mid-stride and said
"I think I seen a picture of you..."
Picture that, I said "Nah I just got one of them faces
Placed next to an expiration date that changes.
I kind of look familiar, my name is on the tip of your tongue
The lost look on my face makes you play dumb.
Say something colloquial
I need to get my bearings and a feel for where I'm at
but you ain't hearin' that.
They shout "freeze!" I'm a tourist trapped by townies
Who put bounties on armies and all surrounding counties
Before I bounce, I hear them shout
"Someone help us out, PLEASE!"
We're all alone in the foster home
Killin' ourselves with the house keys...

[Usher]
Outside
Outsiiiide
Outside there's a runaway

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, runaways
Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, runaways
No spring chicken, summer romance novel writer could win a prize
It's Nobel, go to hell in a riding vehicle that he winterized
Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, runaways

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, runaways
Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, runaways
No spring chicken, summer romance novel writer could win a prize
It's Nobel, go to hell in a riding vehicle that he winterized
Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, runaways
