Running in place
While everybody else laughs in front of my face
Than erase without a trace
Clear up your name
You can’t beat the game
The fame is a trap
You just can’t react

I see the fear behind your eyes
Always so scared to stand up and put it on the line
You turn away and keep on running
The end of your reign is coming

I’ll burn your kingdom to the ground
(I’ll never back down)
You cannot hide under the crown
(I’ll never back down)
You can try to walk over me
(I’ll never back down)
Take a look and you will see
(I’ll never back down)

I see the way you ignore me
You fall over yourself again to be someone you’ll never be
You turn away and keep on running
The end of your reign is coming

I’ll burn your kingdom to the ground
(I’ll never back down)
You cannot hide under the crown
(I’ll never back down)
You can try to walk over me
(I’ll never back down)
Take a look and you will see
(I’ll never back down)

I’ll burn your kingdom to the ground
(I’ll never back down)
You cannot hide under the crown
(I’ll never back down)
You can try to walk over me
(I’ll never back down)
Take a look and you will see
(I’ll never back down)

Running in place
While everybody else laughs in front of my face
Than erase without a trace
Clear up your name
You can’t beat the game
The fame is a trap
You just can’t react

Running in place
While everybody else laughs in front of my face
Than erase without a trace
Clear up your name
You can’t beat the game
The fame is a trap
You just can’t react

I’ll burn your kingdom to the ground
(I’ll never back down)
You cannot hide under the crown
(I’ll never back down)
You can try to walk over me
(I’ll never back down)
Take a look and you will see
(I’ll never back down)

I’ll burn your kingdom to the ground
(Running in place)
I’ll never back down
You cannot hide under the crown
(Running in place)
I’ll never back down
You can try to walk over me
(Running in place)
I’ll never back down
Take a look and you will see
I’ll never back down

    General CommentForbidden Theory is a 6-piece Nu-Metal underground band from Washington DC. There underground debut "Hidden Truth" dropped over the summer and this song featured on it. I follow a lot of underground artists and these guys were some of the new artists that caught my eye

    General CommentThis song talks about people wanting you to be what they want and to follow others but you want to be your own person and not follow anyone but your own path. This had a catchy riff and dramatic chorus. Great song, a favorite.
