I thought it but it wasn't there
If I think it then it can't be lost
An elephant with matchbox tears
Made rivers we're too scared to cross

What are we running from?

The only time we ever lied
We made a bet with Father Time
A wager for our brittle bones
And to this day, our debt he owns

What are we running from?

And now I do
I gotta thank you for the ordinary life that I lead
Oh, it's my place and time
And now I do
I gotta thank you for this ordinary voice that echoes on
It echoes on

We were simple and concrete
And never popularly known
Until we made a fence of teeth
And it ate our home, and now it's gone

I said, what are we running from?

And now I do
I gotta thank you for the ordinary life that I lead
Oh, it's my place and time
And now I do
I gotta thank you for this ordinary voice that echoes on
It echoes on

What are we running from?

And now I do
I gotta thank you for the ordinary life that I lead
Oh, it's my place and time
And now I do
I gotta thank you for this ordinary voice that echoes on
It echoes on

It echoes on
