Run Lyrics

by Wordsworth


[Intro: Wordsworth]
How long you plan to run
When the road ends, you can't turn back and go the other way
That's not a solution, that's only refusin'
Now you trapped yourself in more sides in everyway

[Chorus: Wordsworth]
So where you gonna run now?
Nobody makes it alone so
Where you gonna run now?
No more places to hide so
Where you gonna run now?
No more places to stay so
Where you gonna run now?
Eventually you get caught

[Verse 1: Wordsworth]
Troublemaker in her teens, either love or hate her
Seeks attention make a scene wherever her mother takes her
Curses her out, attitude worse then her mouth
Used to work in the south, 'til her aunt there kicked her out
Raising hell, acts invincible, yell back and spit at you
Held back in middle school, expelled, splapped the principal
Wilding out, nothing to be wild about
When her mom keeps her up to date with every style that's out
Long Island house, got her own room
Behave and save, a crib and care, she'll have her own soon
But shes very unappreciative gives all the credit to her dad
But the secret is her mom made him keep the kid
Doesn't go to school, just another truant case
Trespassed at a high school and slashed a students face
Can't go home police waiting
Tries to run away from her problems but they keep chasing

[Chorus: Wordsworth]

[Verse 2: Wordsworth]
Pops up on her pops porch
"My little girl came to see me, man it's been a while" that's what her pops thought
Scot-free at her pop's crib
Thought her mom was being cruel
thought her father had no set of rules, but he got his
Chores, mop the floors, then scrub the walls
After 8: 00 no noise, phone calls, no boys
Mow the lawn, wash the car and dishes, clean the kitchen
Wake up, we excercise, your curfew's at 9: 00
Was gonna teach her how to drive, couldn't wait 'till her father arrvied
And mischeif only keeps her occupied
Takes the keys while he went golfing, drove but not often
The store wasn't that far she could've just walked it
Foot slips of the gas, but to avoid the crash
Hits a woman coming out of Pathmark carrying bags
Hit and ran, felt she was driving safe
A customer inside the gate of the parking lot got the license plate
Parks it back in the garage, paint scratched, try to match it on the car
With nail polish so the accident was solved
Cops drove up asking, "Sir, do you own a Maxima"
She was gone before they thought of asking her

[Chorus: Wordsworth]

[Breakdown]
Calls her aunt upstate with the estate and the house that's by the lake
She said "I don't want that drama down here"
Calls her ex boyfriend that moved in Portland, Oregon to get away
He said "I don't want that drama down here"
Calls her cousin in Miami but the family called there before she did
They said "We don't want that drama down here"
Last call to her uncle but he's unaware
He said "Why don't you call your mom and dad"
She's like "Yeah, great idea"

[Verse 3: Wordsworth]
Whole city looking for her
Things escalated since the slashing and the hit and run in Brooklyn where they saw her
Changed her hairstyle, now in Staten Isle
Because she knows her grandma would never give up her grandchild
Blind in one eye barely could see who it was
Family always say they'll visit but nobody does
Through the screen door recognized, boy she was surprised
Lonely, seen it in her eyes as she rushed her inside
"Does your mom know that your here" but really didn't care
So delighted to see her, catching up on things, trying to feed her
Ran out of sugar, "I'll go to the store for you"
Hands her the purse but not without going in it first
Opens the door, cops ambush from the trees
With rifles wedged in her temple yelling "Freeze!"

Paul Hardcastle
In 1965 Vietnam seemed like just another foreign war but it wasn't
It was different in many ways, as so were tose that did the fighting
In World War II the average age of the combat soldier was 26
In Vietnam he was 19
In-in-in Vietnam he was 19

The shooting and fighting of the past two weeks continued today
25 miles west of Saigon
I really wasn't sure what was going on

Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19
19, 19, 19, 19

In Vietnam the combat soldier typically served
A twelve month tour of duty
But was exposed to hostile fire almost everyday
Ni-ni-ni 19, Ni-ni-ni 19

Hundreds of thousands of men who saw heavy combat
In Vietnam were arrested since discharge
Their arrest rate is almost twice that of non-veterans of the same age
There are no accurate figures of how many of these men
Have been incarcerated

But a Veterans Administration study
Concludes that the greater of vets
Exposure to combat could more likely affect his chances
Of being arrested or convicted

This is one legacy of the Vietnam War

All those who remember the war
They won't forget what they've seen
Destruction of men in their prime
Whose average was 19

De-de-destruction
De-de-destruction
War, war

De-de-destruction, wa, wa, war, wa, war, war
De-de-destruction
War, war

After World War II the men came home together on troop ships
But the Vietnam vet often arrived home within 48 hours of jungle combat
Perhaps the most dramatic difference between
World War II and Vietnam was coming home
None of them received a hero's welcome

None of them received a heroes welcome, none of them, none of them
Ne-ne-ne, ne-ne-ne, none of them, none of them, none of them
None of them received a hero's welcome
None of them received a hero's welcome

According to a Veteran's Administration study
Half of the Vietnam combat veterans suffered from what
Psychiatrists call
Post-Traumatic-Stress-Disorder

Many vets complain of alienation, rage or guilt
Some succumb to suicidal thoughts
Eight to ten years after coming home
Almost eight hundred thousand men are still fighting the Vietnam War

De-de-destruction
Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni19 19
19, 19, 19, 19
Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19
19, 19, 19, 19

When we came back it was different, everybody wants to know
"How'd it happened to those guys over there?
There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
We did what we had to do

There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
People wanted us to be ashamed of what it made us
Dad had no idea what he went to fight and he is now
All we want to do is come home

All we want to do is come home
What did we do it for?
All we want to do is come home
Was it worth it

I've done everything I canAll the people that I see I will never understandIf I find a way to change, if I step into the lightThen I'll never be the same, and it all will fade to whiteEver on and on I continue circlingWith nothing but my hate in a carousel of agony

She told me in the morning she don't feel the same about us in her bones
It seems to me that when I die these words will be written on my stone
