Run, run, run all you do is fucking run but you’ll never run away from yourself. I know it’s hard but you’ve been there before and you know you’re gonna be there again. I don’t care what the stars may say because they always feed their bullshit to me. It’s kinda sad how you lost what you had and you’re never gonna have it again and so I say:


Hey Sergio, it’s getting kind of hot in here
And so I say:
Hey Sergio, you’ve got to get us out of here
And so I say:

Every other day you don’t care what they say because they always leave you two steps behind. You try to smile and it lasts for a while but they always send you back to the start. Eenie meenie miney mo they shoot down everyone you know and then they leave you there all alone. You wish they’d stop but they never give up and you know deep inside that you’re stuck and so I say:


Sergio laughed for the last time today, He said “It never really bothered me: we all have dues to pay” Like a man that’s cut off at the knee, he hobbles and hobbles because nothing is free. So wake up, wake up, wake up but don’t cry because you’ll fuck up your make up and if you do, you won’t get laid, you won’t make money, no you won’t get paid. So you act so free, you act so free, everybody’s happy because you act so free. Well you might fool them, but you can’t fool me with your mindless chatter like “I don’t need them, I don’t need help” I don’t even need to see the end.

    General CommentThis song was originally done by Catch 22. Some of the original members left and went to this group though. Tomas is the lead singer in this song. This version also has more lyrics that the C22 version. BOTAR added the last paragraph of lyrics to the song. It's pretty good. This song totally reminds me of a hipocrite my ex gf. She cheated on me and has done so much shit it's not funny. Now she keeps saying she's happy and learned from her mistakes, but in reality hasn't and will probably be in the situation. She's said things like "she's a big girl now" and "i can take care of myself" while at the same time said "i'm so confused and lost" and "i've brought all this upon myself and don't know what to do". You get the picture. Or maybe you don't. I seem to be the only one that knows what's going on. No one else does. Hahaha.

    General CommentBOTAR is like a bigband version of Streetlight Manifesto, more acoustic (no kidding, right?), more raw.

    General CommentBOTAR was just the transition for Kalnoky from Catch 22 to Streetlight Manifesto. The songs' melodies are all carried by the horns, just like in SM, so the fact all the guitar parts are acoustic doesn't make much of a difference.

    General CommentPlus it's not a transition but a completely different band, a side project.

    General CommentThis is far greater than the Catch 22 original, but I can't find a BOTAR CD anywhere.
