It's up to you!
This ain't no TV show
You watch my head explode
Ten thousand hours every day

No time to be afraid
Chase up the rattle snakes
Don't let your fear control your fate

The ghost of self denial
It whispers from the grave
The road you can't rely on
Is a risk that you must take

I'm running across the tracks,
(And I'm never coming back)
Oh, I'm running across the tracks,
(And I'm never coming back)
Pulling the blindfolds back
All we did in life

I'm running across the tracks,
(And I'm never coming back)
Oh, I'm running across the tracks,
(And I'm never coming back)
We're gonna escape this trap
Gotta get a life

Stuck in this prison cell
Just like a criminal
I count the years that went to waste

If this road goes to hell
I'm right back where I fell
Made a career from my mistakes

The ghost of self denial
It whispers from the grave
The road you can't rely on
Could be your saving grace

I'm running across the tracks,
(And I'm never coming back)
Oh, I'm running across the tracks,
(And I'm never coming back)
Pulling the blindfolds back
All we did in life

I'm running across the tracks,
(And I'm never coming back)
Oh, I'm running across the tracks,
(And I'm never coming back)
We're gonna escape this trap
Gotta get a life

And every step that I aim to take
(I fall behind, I fall behind)
And every leg that I have to break
(These scars are mine, These scars are mine)
And everyday that I'd pray for you
(I close my eyes, I close my eyes)
At least I can say that we made it through
(The stars aligned, The stars aligned)
The stars aligned
The stars aligned

And words just can't explain the struggle of a dead men's fight
A dead mens fight
And silver spoons get by the wasted mother hard earns life
A hard earns life

Every step that I aim to take
(I fall behind, I fall behind)
And every leg that I have to break
(These scars are mine, These scars are mine)
And everyday that I'd pray for you
(I close my eyes, I close my eyes)
And I hope that you make it through
Yeah, I hope that you make through
It's up to you!

I'm running across the tracks,
(And I'm never coming back)
Oh, I'm running across the tracks,
(And I'm never coming back)
Pulling the blindfolds back
All we did in life

I'm running across the tracks,
(And I'm never coming back)
Oh, I'm running across the tracks,
(And I'm never coming back)
We're gonna escape this trap
Gotta get a life

And every step that I aim to take
(I fall behind, I fall behind)
And every leg that I have to break
(These scars are mine, These scars are mine)
And everyday that I'd pray for you
(I close my eyes, I close my eyes)
At least I can say that we made it through
(The stars aligned, The stars aligned)
The stars aligned
