Maybe I seem so harmless when I’m working in the office Maybe they think that I’m just stylish A pretty nice guy, all so pointless But let me tell you one thing: I’m fucking genuine and when I’m getting drunk it grows my self esteem Pissing in the bus Let’s put some coals in the fire Puking off is halftime But what’s my real desire? Refrain: Every weekend’s recreation of this awful drunk sensation My mind’s disintegration (it's a) TOTAL ESCALATION! Glasses flying low Just the beginning of our show Gimme back the booze Escalation Boys are on the loose We’re not crazy, we’re insane It ends up in a fucking mess We want your girlfriends, not your boredom Read from us in next day’s press Giving oil to the fire The flames are burning higher It’s already third halftime But what’s my real desire? Refrain: Every weekend’s recreation of this awful drunk sensation Public masturbation (it's a) TOTAL ESCALATION!
Daddy’s pride should become a prosecutor or at least some kind of lawyer But got no high school graduation and needed lawyers of my own Or what about a politician? getting influence and earning money But I’m not really interested I hate the system and the people in it Refrain: All your ideas were not for me your dreams of prestige made me sick Took no chance and it seems I crossed your plans Now you’re caught in dull routines while I’m making noise with my bands I got an audience and it seems I crossed your plans They point their fingers right onto me say I’ll never walk the line I won’t be able to fit in here a social outcast - not so fine I’d doing nothing, I’d be too stupid gonna meet me at the welfare Think I’m a loser, an alcoholic who’ll never make it anywhere
Here I am, with my feet Back on these dirty streets With my nose back in the breeze Smelling of the salty sea For all I know It will all get sorted out somehow Now that I’m back where I came from Refrain: I've been too far away for too long now Spent far too much time lost in sad songs It’s been far too long since I met you This time I will stay at least a day or two All my favourite places And all our favourite songs Still feel the way They did before For all I know It will all get sorted out somehow Now that I’m back where I belong
On The Run 03:25
Hey, you lived your life like a man on the run Never spent much time on anything or anyone You left a trail of half-built houses each followed by a broken heart Always looking for a skin to fit in tearing the old one apart Refrain: Now you're so far gone from the place where you once belonged Shed your skin in the blink of an eye You're so far gone Do you remember our songs we got lost? All the long car drives, in the bars late at night You're so far gone I wonder and I ask myself what are you looking for? With your skittish mind and a heart like a revolving door Will you ever stop running? Will you ever find a place to stay? To rest your aching legs and calm the urge to run away
