"You Should Be Running" as written by and Peter Keith Droge....
You should be running while you can
'Cause sooner or later the doors are closing in
Life has a tendency to build good traps
And that's not where you want to find yourself

The gypsie viper's got it's claw
He manufactures tricks for twisting laws
He knows of all the trials you've been through
He could persuade you to be on the tape

Baby, please
Don't let him get to you
'Cause you'll be wishing your dyin'
And he'll be kicking you
Kicking you when you're down

You were hurting when you learned
That when you kiss the flame, it burns
The only light that you could find was hot
Inside that room you felt the torched heat

And when the martyr comes to town
He'll tell you 'bout when he was down
You'll see the truth inside his bloodshot eyes
But will you walk the road that he lays out?

Baby, please
Don't let him get to you
'Cause you'll be wishing your dyin'
And he'll be kicking you
Kicking you when you're down

Baby, please
Don't let him get to you
'Cause you'll be wishing your dyin'
And he'll be kicking you
Kicking you when you're down

You should be running while you can
