When the yelling never stops,
and you feel like you can't get out.
THe dreams you once had are all forever gone.
Your trapped in the place some might call home.
With nothing more to do, but cry.

Runaway, Child
Release the pain while you still can.
Runaway, Child.
Hell can't hold you back anymore.
Runaway, Child.
Its the only thing to do-
When you'd be better off dead.

Tomorrow is here, a new home for you.
Where the gashes in your heart turn to scars.
And all you want gone are the memories now.
The heartache you once felt will be gone.
Now your trapped inside your own free will,
The only thing you do now is smile...

    General CommentWell I wrote this song...But what it means is just when your trapped inside all the pain and you can't get out, and you finally just get away from it and then your so happy. But like after your away from the problems, you still have all the emotional scars, but they are better than actually being there....Its not the best song I've written, but it does have a lot of meaning...so enjoy it damnit!!

    General CommentThis is like speaking to me...to me it says that you're so sick of everything at home and you just need to get out from the "yelling" and the anger and be on your own. With only yourself to repremand. i know its not your meaning but it speaks more than one way thats how you know its good..
