Run away. Run away from the tyranny that life's lessons have pressured on you. Run away, what do you do with these thoughts, do you get them off your chest or do you ... Run away

This song is about human instinct. Human instinct that we have to fight or we're gonna end up, we're gonna end up like animals. We'll be nothing more than animals. We have to run away from human instinct.

There's a thin line between love and hate
And when the line breaks we get slapped in the face
Jack knew Matt from back in high school
Jack ran track with Matt's soon to be wife
Who slept with Jack.
Let's back track 97'
Jack and Matt went to church with the same reverend
And it may seem irrelevant
But Jack claimed celibate
Don't tell the kids but Jack stripped and felt her lips
Yeah that's Matt's girl, her names Amber
And Matt had planned her to stand at the alter
But Jack stabbed his back, hot and heavy
Slowly took advantage, she claims she's not ready
But that's just words
That's how Jack heard
Her words as he grasped her back, Amber
Said no, stop it, get your hands off me, drop it, get off me
Pushed him aside and she slammed the door and she locked it
Run away


Run away. Run away from the tyranny that life's lessons have pressured on you.
Run away, what do you do with these thoughts, do you get them off your chest or do you Run away. Run away from the tyranny that life's lessons have pressured on you
Run away, what do you do with these thoughts, do you get them off your chest or do you


There's a thin line between hate and love
When the line is over done we get shoved in the mud
Jack knew Matt from back in high school
12 years later Jack's engaged soon to be wife
Whose name is Amber, but ooo Matt cant stand her
Cause years ago she cheated on Matt, god damn her
Matt never knew that it was Jack who fooled
With his soon to be wife
Now it's like whose confused, right
Cause Matt had Amber
Jack slapped Amber
Back when Matt had her
Jack took advantage of her
What kind of woman would marry a man like that
Matt had her back for years, not Jack
But Amber made a choice
Matt didn't get it
But he trusted Jack as her husband
He never knew Jack did it
Matt never knew the truth
He never thought less of Jack
By the way Matt's the best man at the wedding


Run away. Run away from the tyranny that life's lessons have pressured on you.
Run away, what do you do with these thoughts, do you get them off your chest or do you Run away. Run away from the tyranny that life's lessons have pressured on you
Run away, what do you do with these thoughts, do you get them off your chest or do you


There's a thin line between love and hate
A thin line between real and fucking fake
And there's a thin line between friends and enemies
A line between what I was and what I can be
I'll be Matt, you be Jack
She'll be Amber and we will see if we're intact
Cause I would fuck you up, I am nuts
Wait am I?
I think I've been in situations just the same
But damn I never noticed
There's a Matt in all of us
There's a Jack in all of us
There's an Amber in all of us
Ya'll like whatch you talkin bout?
Oh shit. Look back at your life
How many times you full of shit?
Human beings are terrible
We fuck people over
Human beings are vulnerable
We get fucked over
Human beings are Amber
We just take it in
And sit back and smile as we watch the world spin
At our finger tips
Come to think of it
Everyone's ignorant
Never think you're innocent
Because you're best friend will probably fuck you too
I'm sorry I wish it wasn't true
But it's just what we do
Run away


Run away. Run away from the tyranny that life's lessons have pressured on you.
Run away, what do you do with these thoughts, do you get them off your chest or do you Run away. Run away from the tyranny that life's lessons have pressured on you
Run away, what do you do with these thoughts, do you get them off your chest or do you

Don't take this the wrong way, love your friends and trust your friends. I'm just saying it's human instinct, human instinct that we all have to fight.
