"No More Running Away" as written by and David Ryan/maddock Jordan....
It's people scattered on the floor
Cool war kids are running out of time
It's such a shame to see
It's such a shame to feel this way

The sun comes streaming through the clouds
Dust and dirt are settled all around
But I hear the same old words
And I see the same old warning sky

We're out of luck this time
We've fallen apart
We're out of luck this time

Tears are rolling down my face
Feeds the fear that's running through the stream
And, oh, I just wanna feel
But I don't wanna feel this way

We're out of luck this time
We've fallen apart
We're out of luck this time

No more running away
No more running away
No more running away
No more running away

No more running away
No more running away
No more running away

No more running away
No more running away
No more running away
No more running away
(We've fallen apart)

(No more running away, no more running away)
We're out of luck this time
We've fallen apart
(We've fallen apart)
'Cause we're out of luck this time
(No more running away, no more running away)

    General Commenti'm surprised nobody has commented this! this is fantastic, the drum beats at the start are so powerful and his voice is fantastic.

    still i realise this is a lyric site. is it "cool war kids are running out of time" on the second line, "we're out of luck this time, we've fallen apart" for the chorus, and i'm not sure what the eighth line is but is it "warming skies" or "warning scars" or something? it doesn't sound like "war this time." i'm sure "feeds of figures running through the stream" isn't right but i can't catch those words either.

    still, such a lovely song.

    General CommentWhat an incredible song, such an emotional build up made by the music itself and the lyrics...

    I agree with what youve said about the lyrics, I also here "we're all out of luck this time, we've fallen apart" and "warming skies".

    I think this song might be about growing up, becoming one person and having to fight for things one your own. It could be relationships aswell, hence the "We've fallen apart" But i definetly think its about finding the world for yourself and having to do things on your own!

    General CommentI think it's cold-war kids, not cool war kids. The song is more related to that generation comming to an end and the changes related to it. Lines 7 and 8 do fit better that way...

    General CommentThis song really gets to me, best song on the album for sure even though I too like Shooting stars a lot. Music just keep rising to an incredible climax.
