LyricsEdit

Graffiti decorations, under the sky of dust
A constant wave of tension, on top of broken trust
The lessons that you taught me; I learned were never true

Now I find myself in question
(They point the finger at me again)
Guilty by association
(You point the finger at me again)

I want to run away/never say goodbye
I want to know the truth/instead of wondering why
I want to know the answers/no more lies
I want to shut the door/and open up my mind

Paper bags and angry voices, under a sky of dust
Another wave of tension, has more than filled me up
All my talk of taking action, these words were never true

Now I find myself in question
(They point the finger at me again)
Guilty by association
(You point the finger at me again)

I want to run away/never say goodbye
I want to know the truth/instead of wondering why
I want to know the answers/no more lies
I want to shut the door/and open up my mind

I'm going to run away, and never say goodbye
(Going to run away going to run away/going to run away going to run away)
I'm going to run away, and never wonder why
(Going to run away going to run away/going to run away going to run away)
I'm going to run away, and open up my mind
(Going to run away going to run away/going to run away going to run away)
Mind
(Going to run away going to run away/going to run away going to run away)
Mind
(Going to run away going to run away/going to run away going to run away)

I want to run away/never say goodbye
I want to know the truth/instead of wondering why
I want to know the answers/no more lies
I want to shut the door/and open up my mind

I want to run away
And open up my mind
I want to run away
And open up my mind
I want to run away
And open up my mind
I want to run away
And open up my mind
