    so...

    go ahead....

    if that is what you want...

    run...

    Run from confrontation...

    you dont want to talk about it....?

    run...

    Just block it.....
    you see everybody does it...
    why shouldent you ?
    Politicians do it to....
    They dont face eachother and sit around the table...
    and say lets talk about this...
    "'i dont think this is fair "'
    (well some of them do but than after that they get a bullet trough their head)
    "'you have such a big land and still you want a piece of ours.."'
    "'why do i have the feeling you want to steel our oil.....""
    ""if you are nice to us i might give you some..""
    "'you know share?''
    ""well i think you are not nice to youre own people....you dont tread them well i have seen this...........come on now be honest about it....""

    But instead of that they go ....

    ""ITS WAR NOW""

    so you RUN...
    RUN from the mirror that shows you..
    Run from the guider that teaches you...
    RUN from the GOD that loves you...

    and makes you grow...

    but Offff......you Go...

    I do it sumthimes to....
    if it makes ""ME"' feel good...
    I would run and no one could stop me...
    except for the one who controlles my legs...

    STOP STOP !
    dont come to close now...
    that wasnt a part of the deal...
    I,m getting out of here....

    so you run...

    as long ..
    as it is not you youre running from..
    cause than you will be running all youre life...
    and beautifull things will pass you by...

    but go ahead and run...
    let evil have its victory....
    so you run...
    run...
    to every place...
    to every corner of the earth...
    you think nothing can hurt you there..
    on that quiet island ..Mr /Ms Robinson?
    Do you think it has legs ?

    we have.....



    and so we RUN
    RUN...
    RUN....
    RUN....
    (hear that army of thoughts running)
    RUN....
    RUN...
    until our feets are tired...

    we rest....

    and than we OFF again..

    O...
    we run..
    run..
    run ...run...run...
    (passing that train of fun...)
    run for PAIN..
    run for our true feelings....

    O..my we run...

    RUN RUN!

    RUN FOR LOVE!
    RUN FROM LOVE!

    RUN FOR PEACE!
    RUN FROM PEACE!

    RUN FOR US !
    RUN FROM WE!

    RUN FOR THOSE!
    RUN FROM THEY!

    RUN FOR YOU!
    RUN FROM ME!



    those are youre feet...
    those are youre shoes..
    and its youre path....


    no doubt about that..
