"Take The Money And Run" as written by and Arthur Carl Enders Chris Badami....
A fresh face and a smile you can't ignore
A crooked tongue tangled up by needing more
A warm spot waiting here on either side

I should have known it from the start
You can't kill a cancer without heart
I wait here mapping my brand new life
And I was hoping you could tell me why

You broke me down while swinging off my mind
And all I have to say, you made a fortune off of me
Singing everyone around me looks the same
And every word I hear is just like ringing in my ears
Saying everyone around me looks the same.

Talk talk talking down to even more
You lost the scent couldn't find another score
You're slowing down still trying to take more
I should have known this from the start
You saw us struggle for the shore
I'm in a box that is labeled on one side
It says take the money and

All I have to say, you made a fortune off of me
Singing everyone around me looks the same
And every word I hear is just left ringing in my ears
Saying everyone around me looks the same

I should have known this from the start
The ship sank we struggled back to shore
I saw the box that was cradled in your arms
It said take the money and run

All I have to say, you made a fortune off of me
Singing everyone around me looks the same
And every word I hear is just left ringing in my ears
Saying everyone around me looks the same.
