Run, run, as fast as you can
You can't catch me, I'm the Gingerbread Man
You can look, look, hard as you can
You can't see me, I'm the Gingerbread Man
Poor old family of man
Never mind me, I'm just a Gingerbread Man
Only hours away could be a man with a million dollars
Only minutes away could be a guy with a gun
Only seconds away could be a love that will last forever
But if it gets away there might not ever be one
In and out, in and out, in and out
How many times do I think "in and out, in and out"?
This color's not right
It needs some more red
Maybe it's the light
Now I'm not sure
I wonder where Ken is
What's she doing?
Ah, she's asleep
He tries to help
I know he loves me
But sometimes he seems so out of touch
And all he cares about are his words
So old and tired
I need someone to help me
And what if that guy follows him?
Last week he told me about that man who kept staring at him
I can see him with his throat cut now
Oh, why do I do this?
I can see it all - school picture in the newspaper
"Child savagely slain"
God, I wish he was home now
