lyrics

Rabbits underneath my feet
I’ve been killing here for weeks
smoking insect poisons

my tongues goes black
as the moment passes
I think about my choices

Well, I choose what I do and I do what I choose
in my shoes I am bound to lose
everyone around me

‘cause I kill what I can, I’m a killing man
with a life span as long as my life plan
and that’ll end shortly

My brothers and I
we sit and hide
wait for the fuzz to leave
if they come inside
it’ll coincide
with us hanging off the eaves
hopefully
run, run, run, run, run
ain’t life so much fun
when you’re always on the run
with a stolen gun
named after your father?
When they’ve finally won
and I’m completely done
I’ll still run
like my father

Yeah, I took up selling drugs
to poor and nameless thugs
asking, “what’s your poison?”

Father ran away
Now mother left us stray
We still hear their voices

That would shake and break like an earthquake
our house and make our neighbours wide awake
asking, “Do you hear those noises?”

I was young with the lung of a man who sung
with a raspy voice and a foul tongue
I love what destroys me

My brothers and I
we sit and hide
wait for the fuzz to leave
if they come inside
it’ll coincide
with us hanging off the eaves
hopefully
run, run, run, run, run
ain’t life so much fun
when you’re always on the run
with a stolen gun
named after your father?
When they’ve finally won
and I’m completely done
I’ll still run
run
