"Borrowed Legs" as written by and Michael L. Shepard....
Oh, I thought you learned your lesson, Caroline
Now you're slipping on this black ice

Running 'round the world, you know you're running
'Round the world on borrowed legs
Running 'round the world, you know you're running
'Round the world on borrowed legs

Breathing through your mouth is like a parasite
Slip inside like mice in the mall

Running 'round the world, you know you're running
'Round the world on borrowed legs
(Don't you love this? God damn, this little trip you're on)
Running 'round the world, you know you're running
'Round the world on borrowed legs
(Don't you love this? You're having so much fun)

Running 'round the world, you know you're running
'Round the world on borrowed legs
(Don't you love this? I'm just a preacher's son)
Running 'round the world, you know you're running
'Round the world on borrowed legs
(Don't you love this?)

All the yellow tears are speaking, Caroline
They all want your body on ice

Running 'round the world, you know you're running
'Round the world on borrowed legs
(Don't you love this? God damn, this little trip you're on)
Running 'round the world, you know you're running
'Round the world on borrowed legs
(Don't you love this? You're having so much fun)

Running round the world, you know you're running
Round the world on borrowed legs
(Don't you love this? I'm just a preacher's son)
Running 'round the world, you know you're running
'Round the world on borrowed legs
(Don't you love this?)

Stoned, awake, alone, a letter in your lap
You've got your father's eyes
Awake and black, a tear in your glass
You miss your mother's roots

Take a breathe, a bottled halo will always
Drag you down, will drag you down
Don't you love this trip you're on?
Everything will soon be done

    General Commenti think it's "a borrowed halo will always drag you down"

    My InterpretationI interpreted the song as this:

    Her parents gave her her life, her genes, her body, and in particular, her legs.
    With the life they gave her, she's out living a meaningless life, and she's setting herself up to be alone with only memories of her parents.
