Running From Myself

Just to run away from this agony, to
Leave, to crawl away, and just hide from this strife, to
Make a new identity, to start all over again, and to
Get away from this ****, this **** they call lifeÖ
Just to run away from all of my peers,
And to never look back, with a new life ahead,
To choke on my misery, to suck up my tears,
To hide in the night, with the moon blazing red.

Gotta run away, and never look behind,
Gotta straighten my priorities, and in those to find,
Something that has a meaning, none of this pointless ****,
Ill search. All my life. Even unto the crypt.
Iím just like a car, but without no fuel,
Running with no purpose, no motivation,
Running from the life which treated me so cruel,
Running from myself, my own creation.

Iím running from myself,
Got to be using all my stealth,
I Gotta get away from me,
Just to run away and flee.
Iím sick of who I created,
I made myself, who Iíve hated.
So I just wanna run away,
Just to go and leave to stay,

Thereís nothing in life to look forward to,
Iím chased by my own beast, and Iím cornered too
Only if I can run, just to run away,
With nothing to deter me, to lead me astray,
Just to leave this all, going into a new being,
With nothing but bliss which I would be seeing.
Yeah right, but nothings that easy, and Iím here to stay,
And suffer the pain, Ďtill my sanity gives way.

You canít understand, no ones in the position that Iím in,
Not one has felt the anguish inside me,
The sphere of compressed pain Iíve kept within,
And now to release it all-pain to the hundredth degree.
I just want to go away from the person I made myself,
Just to sneak away, to escape, to run, even with little health,
Iím fighting the impossible, outnumbered ten to one,
So Iím left with one choice-just to let go and run.

Iím running from myself,
Got to be using all my stealth,
I Gotta get away from me,
Just to run away and flee.
Iím sick of who I created,
I made myself, who I have hated.
So I just wanna run away,
Just to go and leave to stay,
