lyrics

i was born under a watchful eye
watching people work to die
found a girl she didn't speak
with a hollow laugh she beckoned me
i took a step and she took ten
asked to meet her she asked when
cause you know she's always on the run
i'm all alone playing hide and seek
under a rock come look for me
cause we're always on the run
climbing those crooked peaks
we've got black feet and we can't breathe
but we won't stop until we get burnt up by the sun

she hung me up in a noose
upside down she cut me loose
she turned me on to her open road
but there's no need to follow
you roadside boy up your thumb stuck
think she'll stop and pick you up
but you know she's always on the run
i'm all alone playing hide and seek
under a rock come look for me
cause we're always on the run
climbing those crooked peaks
we've got black feet and we can't breathe
but we won't stop until we get burnt up by the sun
