This chain of events
Gather and plot
The ensnaring of me

Gone now
The sense of lust
Is there a cause for the reckless excess?
Take it in
The growth and trust
Retaliatory strike at the weakest spot

Raked away the remains of my fall
Laid scattered across plains of regret
Humble in defence of the wicked
Rundown, naked and blind

The onslaught of demands
Get in line for the numbning
I won't make a stand

Of the slavery
Reconcile with the carefree and content
Lead not these, the frail into battle again

Crossing out the ramblings of others
Tired of the same old refrain
Knowing this will all be corrected
Torn down, wasted and lost

I can't take it anymore 'cause I am rundown
Can't take it anymore 'cause this is wrong
Tired and rundown
Tired and rundown

I can't take it anymore 'cause I am rundown
Can't take it anymore 'cause this is wrong
Tired and rundown
Tired and run

Spat it out
The foolish lines you fed
It holds a place in the civilized mind
The turn of our venturesome quest
Being rundown as we seek


The day this was lost
All that you see
All that I'll be

    My InterpretationI think of the song as a reference to how society is constantly pushing us to do more, be more. If we're not better than everyone else we'll lose our jobs, homes, money, influence etc. This cycle of consumerism and constant dissatisfaction pushes us to be constantly run down. Tired, weary- a never ending cycle of pursuing happiness and 'having more' so that we are never truly happy.
    We just get more run down instead!
