So he clenched the knob
As the sweat beaded around his brow
The footsteps were closer now
So he held his breath
Please God, let him pass by this door
Because if I'm found
I'll be back in the reverend's den
"What a bad boy you've been"
Said I can't be saved

So I ran away
I ran away, yeah
I ran away
I ran away

Blood of lamb
They marked him when he was young
Curse of the oldest son
Such a rotten seed
The leper, the liar, the fool
And I do believe
I've been crying out wolf all my life
Been telling lies
Just a devil, say

I run away
Run away, yeah
I run away
I run away

And he'd kill me
If the guilt wouldn't kill me first
And I'd kill him if I could

Windmills or stables
The scars of my pain
And I know I can never go back there again
I genuflect for a point of view
Well, what would you do?

Blame
You can feed it to yourself
Blame
You can feed it to yourself

Away
Away
Away
Away
The leper, the liar, the fool
Boy, you're just a slave
You can't make them do the things they say
You genuflect for a point of view
What would you do?
Away
Away
