To my people doing time
To my people rest in peace
Y'all ready for the refugee camp?
Introducing Earth, Wind and Fire
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Come on, come on, come on, come on

No money in my pocket gotta get a no limit
So I became America's most wanted
All I ever wanted was a fancy car
A crib for my mom and a master card
Baby you know how it's in Hollywood
New cop flicks with Clint Eastwood
Went from a teen to a young adult
No excuses it ain't my fault

Runaway, we living like runaways
Wake up, stretching in the morning, yawning
Trying to make it through the day
Brush my teeth, hit the streets
Where there's heat we afford to beef
Hoping one day we don't have to run away

I didn't want to runaway
But I had to get a way yo
We didn't want to runaway
But we had to get away yo
I didn't want to leave astray
But sometimes I gotta get away yo
I didn't want to go away
But I had to go away yo

Yo G and B where you at?

Momma came home from a hard days work
At day time a maid at night time a nurse
Work so hard to make sure we survived living a ghetto paradise
Sometimes I wake up screaming in the middle of the night
Hoping that darkness brings me light
Praying for that better day where we won't have to runaway

Runaway, we living like runaways
Wake up, stretching in the morning, yawning
Trying to make it through the day
Brush my teeth, hit the streets
Where there's heat we afford to beef
Hoping one day we don't have to run away

I didn't want to runaway
But I had to get a way yo
We didn't want to runaway
But we had to get away yo
I didn't want to leave astray
But sometimes I gotta get away yo
I didn't want to go away
But I had to go away yo

Ladies and gentleman Earth, Wind and Fire
Feeling Melly y'all
More peace y'all
Firm in y'all

Runaway, we living like runaways
Wake up, stretching in the morning, yawning
Trying to make it through the day
Brush my teeth, hit the streets
Where there's heat we afford to beef
Hoping one day we don't have to run away

I didn't want to runaway
But I had to get a way yo
We didn't want to runaway
But we had to get away yo
I didn't want to leave astray
But sometimes I gotta get away yo
I didn't want to go away
But I had to go away yo

I didn't want to runaway
But I had to get a way yo
We didn't want to runaway
But we had to get away yo
I didn't want to leave astray
But sometimes I gotta get away yo
I didn't want to go away
But I had to go away yo

Yo y'all gonna make me do it
I don't want to do it but here we go
Ain't no samples this is original baby
Put em up y'all, refugees
I want to see everybody's hand in the air right now
Recognize the legends up in here
