I held the spot
kept it up
and felt the sonic boom
watching the victim fall down
outside the cellar room

I ran away
in the night
but it was too late to hide my face
a witness made
we’ll be erased today

living your life as a runaway
giving us a chance to start it over
paradise lost in a single frame
witness protection is all we know

I made my name
fooled them all
and left the city rare
flashbacks remain
this is my cross to bear

but I don’t mind
and you don’t care
cause there are things they don’t know
this worked out fine
I’ll be their John Doe

living your life as a runaway
giving us a chance to start it over
paradise lost in a single frame
witness protection is all we know

living your life as a runaway
living our lives as the runaways
witness protection is all we know
