"Run Away" as written by Blake Colin Lewis and Jason [mpca] Joseph....
I'm still scared afraid of failing
Anticipating, the ride to end
Before the wheels begin to move

[Chorus]
(Run away) so I can hide
(Run away) I've mastered feeling nothing
(Run away) I'm dead inside
(Run away) why don't I care

Waste my time commiserating
Self medicating it's my design
Although I know you don't approve

[Chorus]

The truth is that I'm not so good
At showing how I feel
Or keeping my mouth shut
When there's something to conceal
Or knowing how to love
Love's not in my memories
How can I rise above all my insecurities

[Chorus]

(Run away) I fight the tide
(Run away) the ebb and flow consuming
(Run away) still by my side
(Run away) why should I care

    General CommentThat guitar sounds freakin sweet and the intro is awesome! He is talking about low self security; not trying cuz ure afraid of failing, and how it keeps him from doing anything he wants to. This is one of the heaviest songs on Chapter V. There's more to this song, but I can't put my finger on it...

    General CommentWhat an amazing song the start to finish. I think this song is about runing away and trying to hide from your fears and solving yor problems yourself without the help of others, until it all becomes to much. I think its also about how empty people can become without love and have no emotions because they are used to not opening up and letting someone in.

    General CommentBasically what the others said, this song is about hiding from your fears. I'm surprised that this song wasn't released as a single. The loud, jolting riff is very good, and I actually think that this and Schizophrenic Conversations are the two best songs on Chapter V.

    General CommentMayne, the second verse is hot. It flows so well. My only gripe is that the bridge is a little slow.

    It's strange how the jolting riff really contrasts with the self-defeating lyric. I kinda like it. The riff makes me want to jump up and do something, but the lyrics make me want to stay put.
