I run but never get away
Chinatown jail break

Sitting in this cell these bars wide open
Stricken by the light I fear the unspoken
The Son is my hope my shelter and my guide
But I’d rather choose this lonely cell this hole where I hide

I run
I run
I run
but never get away
Chinatown jail break

The darkness of this hole has its claws in my soul
Who needs the warms I choose the cold
My freedoms not that I’ve conditioned my soul to want
I’m bound beneath the surface, my selfishness I flaunt
He’s calling my name yet I choose the same

    General CommentAlright, this comes straight from Tobin.

    This Song is metaphoricaly saying that if you are in a jail cell, with the doors open, and knowing that you can leave at anytime, free of will. But, you stay in the darkest corner of the cell because you are afriad of the light (the lord) and you accually need him...

    So this is pretty accurate, saying I took it straight from Tobin's mouth...

    Enjoy!!
