Split down the middle like a stake into dirt
Cranium to ankles my achilles tendon rips
It snaps and retracts to my spine and upper back
Spreads across my shoulders tense as spider ridden bats
Gurgling and churning my minds in a struggle 
To contain my deepest thoughts of death strung out to miracles
Joy and ambition, silence and submission interlock together like waves pounding crystals
So we..

Run for the shore
Escape the pain we felt before
Run for the shore
Black out screaming on the floor
Run for the shore
Until you can’t run no more  
Run for the shore!

This time around I’m not gonna be a fool
As I tread through the valley seeking out the “golden rules”
If I had a cable I’d cut myself free 
To leave our past behind and separate entirely
Cause love can lead to tears and tears can lead to sorrow
Scrambled colours mingle as falling liquids swallow
Open wounds in acid dipped in salt too
The roots that we grew have rotten through and through
The that we grew have rotten through!
So we..

Run for the shore
Escape the pain we felt before
Run for the shore
Black out screaming on the floor
Run for the shore
Until you can’t run no more  
Run for the shore

We run we run to the shore no
We run we run from ourselves no
We run we run without our health

But you have to try
You have to try!
