There was a sound,
Split all the heavens apart
In on the northern route,
Out of the southern spark
Oh, I will be with you,
Running from the rain

When it reaches the end of the line
See myself reflected, in broken glass
As the gates come crashing down

There is blood on the tracks tonight
And rust inside our veins
(we will make it in time before the storm)
Running behind me

There were some younger kids
Who followed the tracks that day
It was a passing afternoon
And I came and took them away

So we forgot our names
Lying in the tall grass that's underneath the billboard dreams
Oh, I will be with you,
Running from the rain

When it reaches the end of the line
See myself reflected, in broken glass
As the gates come crashing down

There is blood on the tracks tonight
And rust inside on our veins
(we will make it in time before the storm)
It's running all over [Repeat: x4]
(the rain)
Running from the rain

Indecipherable whispers this is what I got

I need to get them out.
It's the right time to crash is it not?
You were all counting down, running on.
Running from the rain.
Operator, operator can you take it away?
You got that car you brought from me
Keep running cause you know it's true,
We're coming back,
Running from the rain.

    General CommentI really love this song, it might be my favorite off the new album. I was watching TV earlier today and a car advert. came on, with some very familiar music playing. Almost instantly, I cocked my head and thought "Is that... Thursday?" And, it was. This song is being used as background music for some fancy new car (I can't recall which).

    I'm not sure how I feel about this. It's good, I guess, that Thursday is getting money and some advertising. It's saddening, too, that such a powerful song is cheapened by a car advert. I can't help but wonder if the execs. behind this decision really understand what the song means to the fans, and the band. *shrugs*
