Inspired by Quentin

lyrics

you better run, son.
you gotta blaze like there's dragons
nipping away at the backs of your heels.

cause there'll be days, boy.
oh, there'll be days of dodging photon rays
and flaming, swinging blades.

and the only real play in this game
is just to keep runnin away.
you gotta keep runnin away.

you're gonna hold onto all the things that mean something to you.
but sometimes that meaning turns out not to be so true.
cause when the buoys are gone
the tide don't stop for anyone,
and the only thing between the sky and the ocean is you.

and the only real play in this game
is just to keep runnin away.
you keep reviewing the game, looking for another way
to play the game.
but you gotta keep running away.

when I hold you I forget myself,
I forget the things I'm supposed to do.
I forget the things I'm supposed to expose you to.

so I make this choice now.
I've gotta be that voice somehow
of a father to a boy about the things that'll get him through.

and the only real play in this game
is just to keep runnin away.
you keep reviewing the game, looking for another way
to play the game.
but you gotta keep running away.

oh, there's no heroes
just fast malicious foes
on your back your back, you know.
aint no way they're gonna let you go away.

oh, can't seem to get ahold
by finger, tooth, or toe
to any fence or pole
just gonna drag and pull you away.
they're gonna pull you away.

I know everything about
the runnin but I just want to hold your hand right now
cause that feels less like writing, more like fighting to me somehow.
and with your hand in mine, I feel like I can make a stand
and I, I think we should make that stand whenever we can.

you say the only real play in this game
is just to keep running away.
but there's nothing about the game
that says we can't keep looking for another way
to keep from running
I don't wanna keep running.
together we don't have to keep running away.
