Run, run as fast as they can
They can’t catch the gingerbread man
A thousand miles of road behind
I’ve got to run, yes I’ve got to hide

If my scent is picked up
Then I’ll thrown them off the trail
I’ll stow away, I’ll steal a car, I’ll ride the rails
Black helicopters shining lights on where I’ve been
And in a dumpster they won’t see me flash a grin.
I’ll win

I’m gonna fight tooth and nail
(yeah)

But in the meanwhile

I’m on the run
On the run
On the run


Fake ID cards and I’ve got a new disguise
And I hope I go unnoticed because no one’s seen my eyes
I slide through in public view
I do what I’ve got to do
Be it run or take a stand
I become the every man and fade away

Just like a chameleon I rearrange my style
Moving past security I nod and flash a smile
Now I’ll need a decoy, now where’s a “dancing monkey”
They ain’t catching this boy cause I’m just far too funky, baby


I’m gonna fight tooth and nail
(yeah)
I’m gonna fight tooth and nail
(yeah)

But in the meanwhile

I’m on the run
On the run
On the run


The message has come
The planet is done
Look up to the skies
And open your eyes
