"Running From Me" as written by Jason Singleton, James Fukai, Joshua Moates and Kevin Palmer....
Say a prayer for me
Cause I can barely breathe
I'm suffering and I can't take it
Because of me

No one will ever see
This side of me
If I don't make it
It's like I can't wake up

It's like I can't get up
It's like I can't remember who I used to be
Am I running from you
Or am I running from me

Clear a path for me
Cause I can barely see
I'm stumbling and I can't take it
It's up to me

To save myself from me
My enemy
But I can't face it
I'm breaking now

I'm breaking now
I'm breaking out
Here I come
Can't...Wake...Up cause I'm no one

    General CommentThese are some of the best lyrics,
    Its like I can't wake up,
    its like I cant get up
    its like I cant remember who I used to be
    am I running from you or am I running from me?
    I think the meaning is pretty self-explanatory. I can totally relate to what he's saying, I feel the same way right now. Trust Company is an awesome band!

    General CommentHe's gone down a path in life at which he realizes that he should not be where he's at or the situation he's in. Whether he chose the path or more likely that someone was tugging at his strings...playing him, enticing him to follow. He's battling with this decsion...and he's not sure who to blame...

    "Am I running from you or am I running from me?"

    Now he's at a breaking point, but he doesn't think he can turn back...he feels trapped, stuck...he doesn't have the strength, effort, or courage mentally to change his situation.

    Hell, I've been in a couple relationships that brought me to similar situations/feelings...tough to feel that that. :(

    Great lyrics put to great music....wonderfully sad and thought provoking song!

    General CommentOne more thing I forgot to add. This battle within himself it bottled up inside...he's trying not to let people see his pain and suffering. Like most people, trying to hide it all...

    General Commentthis side of me, if I don’t make it,
    i think the correct lyric is
    this side of me, and i can't take it

    i think this band really knows what their doing and the lyrics are self-explanitory.
