"I'll run, I'll run, I'll run away from home
You can't touch me no more
I'll run away from home
I'll steal a truck, I'll steal my cousin's truck
And drive into the night, passed the embers of light

Those midnight moths with ultraviolet light
Will drown my broke headlights
Down the highway tonight"
And earth will dwell at all the dusty dirt
Just to see you runnin' free, your hair blazin' in the breeze

Then death is enough at the head of my mom
Turn the radio up, static between the songs
And everybody tried to gut the truth and lie
And I would rather die, baby now, I would rather die

Nothing grows, nothing lives, nothing loves, nothing forgives
In the house by the poison lake, growing farther and farther away
The stars light up like strip club disco floors, like stained glass church windows
Flashing faster as you drive

The sea just meets as you drive by the shore
And seaweed castles shoot fireworks by windows
You're free, you're free, the moon echoes "You're free!"
Cherubs sing in the breeze, the radio's going "Please"

And all my friends with phosphorous heads drinking coffee all night
In the dissented light
And everybody tried to gut the truth and lie
And I would rather die, baby now, I would rather die

You smile, the road like a snake forever flows out your rearview mirror
You'll never see him again
"I'll run, I'll run, I'll run away from home
You can't touch me no more
I'll run away from home"

    General CommentBeautiful song. must be about someone who (obviously) runs from home. Away from someone who is in some way abusing or hurting this person.
