lyrics

Choose any direction, walk a straight line
I've never used a compass, expect I'm doing fine
Stumbled in the gutter 700 times
I'll put my message in the bottle once I've emptied all the wine
But don't take Your eyes off me now because in time

I'll be running back
I'll be running back to You
Where I started from, caught up in the lie
You always knew I'd be running back

Filled up on the empty, it never seems to last
You think I'd know better, but there's safety in the past
I never cut the eye holes so I can't see out my mask
And I'd trade the 700 for a little bit of cash
I should trade my excuses in and before you know

I'll be running back
I'll be running back to You
Where I started from, caught up in the lie
You always knew I'd be running back

So long waiting underneath this atom bomb
Waiting for my weary arms to get too tired
For the blast to arrive
You are waiting for me, never far
Down the road, waiting for my weary heart to rewind
To set this mess aside

I'll be running back
I'll be running back to You
Where I started from, caught up in the lie
You always knew I'd be running back
I'll be running back to You
Where I started from, caught up in the lie
You always knew I'd be running back
