Move along staying close to the wall
Looking over your shoulder just in time
Avoid the light, close your eyes
And put your hand in mine, and put your hand in mine

Are we in danger or is it that
You think we might be
But I think I'd like to get out of here
This place it frightens me, this place it frightens me

Running for our lives
At least we're pretending we are
Running for our lives we never get very far
We never get very far, we never get very far

Stop pretending
This is a child's adventure
The only way I can take it
Is playing the game

Be quiet, there's a gate ahead
Do you think we can make it?
Will it be different or just the same?
How long can we keep escaping
How long can we keep escaping
How long can we keep escaping into another prison

Running for our lives
At least we're pretending we are
Running for our lives we never get very far
We never get very far, we never get very far

Move along staying close to the wall
Looking over your shoulder just in time
Avoid the light, close your eyes
And put your hand in mine, and put your hand in mine

Running for our lives
At least we're pretending we are
Running for our lives we never get very far
We never get very far, we never get very far
We never get very far, we never get very far
We never get very far, we never get
