this melody never seemed quite right
nothing you could ever sing along to
eerie rhythms creeping through doors
if i close my eyes you won't ever see me
count to ten you will never see me
you won't ever see me
hide in sanction
i'll show you how i bury myself tonight
this fear runs through my veins
run run as fast as you can
never look behind
never turn around
run run till i find who i am
never look behind
never turn around
as i fall face down
i was young
and now i still remember
i still remember everything
and all the pain you caused
i'm living in this misery
resisting evil thoughts
this is what's been haunting me
beaten tossed around blatantly
i scream out loud
i can't scream any louder

    General CommentI'm not exactly sure what this is about. I have several ideas though. An early homosexual encounter gone awry. Child abuse or molestation. Or simply an abusive relationship.

    General Commentnot necessarily abusive. maybe someone really close to him died, and he still feels the pain from it. or maybe he was depressed as a child and has never came back from that depression, or is falling into depression again.

    General CommentI think that someone kept hurting Craig when he was younger, but nobody listened to what he had to say, because maybe that person was a close family friend, or maybe even family. I think the "run run" part has to do with a gun or something. I think he was so scared he considered killing himself or the person harming him, hence, "evil thoughts."
