"Turn Your Back And Run" as written by and Ryan Clark Don Clark....
I'm growing partial to detesting a disease in me.
It's head swells into beautiful. Dependency.
With teeth that feed on flesh and everything.
I swear I am not.
A small price to bleed and give you everything that you want.
Dancing with the spirit, giving heart to pump a dirty vein.
Leaving with a scar, a uniform to bruise a perfect stain.
Anything you hate will be the root of everything you breathe.
Breathing in the dirt will leave you hating all that you conceive.
I try to push myself up, I'm breaking from the inside.
I'm slipping through the cracks and I try to push it out of mind.
Switch, you've got to turn your back and run.
To push it out is just a patch to heal a gaping wound.
A brass tack to pin a hair and heal a broken tomb.
I never thought I'd be the one to bring it down to this.
My last thought is through a statement and a shattered fist.
Face down, fearless, light me up, end this.
I try to push myself up, I'm breaking from the inside.
I'm slipping through the cracks and I try to push it out of mind.
Switch, you've got to turn your back and run.
Microns from the flame head.
Beat my hands to proceed nothing.
Staring into souls with blind eyes.
Taking the throne in my tiny hand.
And chase it with the pain.
You won't have life until you run.
You got to give it all away.
I try to push myself up, I'm breaking from the inside.
I'm slipping through the cracks and I try to push it out of mind.
Switch, you've got to turn your back and run.

    General CommentThis song is about repenting and turning away from sin. we are never truely forgiven of our sin until we completely turn away from it. they're just telling us to "switch". "leaving a scar" and such. it's just how the further we get into sin the more we tend to be lost and dig a deeper hole for ourselves. The only way to get rid of it is to switch and run away from the things that harm us and keep us away from God.

    General Comment"You won't have life UNTIL YOU RUN. You've got to GIVE IT ALL AWAY. You've gotta TURN YOUR BACK AND RUN!"

    Self explainitory. We won't have life till we give Jesus everything. And turn our backs and run away from sin and satan's temptation!

    General CommentAm I the only one who sees this song as dealing with drug addiction? "Microns from the flamehead" is like he's about to light up his crackpipe, the "souls with blind eyes" are all the other junkies around him who are already completely high and gone. And by "taking the throne in [his] tiny hand," he's trying to feel powerful by weak and earthly means.
    Yeah?

    General CommentGrandSlam is right it is about repenting but it is also about how we can't make it with out God.

    "I try to push myself up, i'm breaking from the inside.
    I'm slipping through the cracks and I try to push it out of mind."
