Running down the street
Scott looked back at me and said
This is another bizzare and
thankless situation you've gotten us in

i said, oh like you've never been in a fight before
as if you've never caused a scene.
anyway scott shut up you're not even really here

this ain't the worst we seen
we been through worse than this
we will live to laugh 'bout this
shut up and keep running
what did you say to make that guy so angry

Scott smiles, i bust through a restaurant to their kitchen back door
The cooks look up startled as i trip across the floor.
You used to be so good at getting out of things, Scott
I say "how come you never taught me that trick
Behind the restaurant we are sizing up the fence

am i going to get over that thing
I've been through worse than this
i will live to laugh about this
I am sick of running
Jumping roof to roof, it's scary

I'm sick of it Scott, fighting
Sometimes winning,
sometimes my jaw needs icing
I do think i'm funny but
Some day it'll be one bon mot too many.

i honestly don't know if i am going to make some of those leaps
I gesture up, a figure in a window waves
Hi, there has got to be some smarter way to deal with all these creeps
Scott purses his lips, furrows his brow and says

There has never been a time
when brains have not won over brawn
we will live to see the dawn.
And Scott you are still not really here
We all do what we can where we can, Pete

Get home safely
I will, I do, I always do
I miss you, you bastard
I will, I do, I always do

There has never been a time
When brains have not won over brawn
We will live to see the dawn
And Scott you are still not really here
We all do what we can where we can, Pete

I'm sick of it Scott, fighting
Sometimes winning
sometimes my jaw needs icing
Do you think that i'm funny
And thats what I said to make that guy so angry

    General CommentI'm pretty sure scott is in his head since he keeps saying "Your not really here."

    General Commentif you haven't yet, do your self a favour and read the story under "History" on their web page. it's a little hard to keep the names straight because there are so many, (some characters having more than one). But i'm pretty sure scott is mentioned in there somewhere. I could be wrong.
