I wanna run away
I wanna run away
I wanna run away
I wanna run away

I wanna bring you too
I wanna bring you too
I wanna bring you too
I wanna bring you too

I wanna run in the mud
I wanna run in the mud
I wanna run in the mud
I wanna run in the mud

Because there's something to run(?)
Because there's something to run(?)
Because there's something to run(?)
Because there's something to run(?)

See someone doubting us(?)
Underneath you standing there(?)

See my surprise of death(?)
I think you'll never love(?)

I wanna run away
I wanna bring you too
I wanna run away
I wanna bring you too

I wanna run away
I wanna bring you too
I wanna run away
I wanna bring you too

I wanna run in the mud
I wanna run in the mud
I wanna run in the mud
I wanna run in the mud

You give me nothing to lose
You give me nothing to lose
You give me nothing to lose
You give me nothing to lose

We saved our lives forever
We saved our lives together

You say
let's ride
this wave
for the rest to say
let's leave today

let's ride
this wave
for the rest to say
let's leave today

let's ride
this wave
for the rest to say
let's leave today

let's ride
this wave
for the rest to say
let's leave today

let's leave today

    General CommentI think it's:

    let's ride
    this way
    for mercy sake
    let's bleed today

    General Commenti think its "for mercy's sake let's leave today"
    but i think the song is about removing gender binaries, the music video is all about superimposing people on top of each other, notably women and men on top of each other removing differences between the sexes. He even sings about running through the mud, in effect, "muddying" up the differences and expectations set upon by gender
    also the "waves" could be referring to the different waves of feminism, that could be trying to further gender neutrality

    General CommentIn the 1972 movie Solaris I think a character mentions going to an alien planet and seeing a garden full of plants and everything is made of plaster. The plot sort of goes along with the lyrics, so I think it's probably a reference to that. Wouldn't recommend the movie though.
