slow fade back to the scene of the crime
you still walk the streets
but you're doing the hardest kind of time
duck down the alleyway out of sight
dive under cover of deepest night
in the darkness they can't see you anymore

and now my lips are forming words
that my heart has been shouting for as long as i remember
and i can't remember the last time i felt this scared
and though my voice is barely heard
the broken sounds are escaping, i am bracing for the bullets
that i know i cannot evade
i just lay here waiting for the train

breathe deep, you reach for the bottle again
when everything is spinning you don't have to let me in
so drink it down to the bottom and hit the floor
climb in the closet and lock the door
in the morning i won't be here anymore

how can you run from your shadow?
say that the sun doesn't shine
everything's always tomorrow
but i'm gonna say this tonight
