lyrics

Runaway horse

If you wanna bring back a runaway horse
Betting on it would probably be nice
‘Cause there have been flowers that grew on rock
But there’s never been a flower that grew on ice

Well you can be full of an ungrounded pride
While remaining a stranger to joy
You can spend your whole life boasting like a man
While all along you are just a scared little boy

And it’s all kicking and rolling down my spine
Death’s on the corner but for now I’m fine

And you can talk of freedom and love and all that
And in the meantime be the right hand of a loan shark
But what you say and wish for, it ain’t who you are
The light’s in your mind but outside its all dark

Now I know this for sure ‘cause I paid my lesson well
With tears and madness and hard long years,
There ain’t no future in lying to our mirrors
There’s only future after killing our fears

And it’s all kicking and rolling down my spine
Death’s on the corner but for now I’m fine
