Baby, lost in the middle of a thousand dreams
When not one has become true
Baby, lost in the sea of a thousand faces
When not one has any clue

I didn't say it first, say it first, I think you did
I swear I heard it first, heard it first, from your lips... from your lips

You wanna run-----, your dreams lie shattered and twisted
Run-----, your dreams lie shattered and twisted

Baby, tell me the things that could change your mind
And I'll see what I can do
Baby, mean what you say when you tell me so,
I don't give up on you

When did this happen,
When did things fall through
I remember talking about the things that we would do
Why'd you forfeit,
All the things that you had planned
Why you laid them down I'll never understand

And it's a matter of opinion if it matters that the home team lost in the bottom of the ninth
It's not a matter of opinion and it matters that the plane went down when your dreams took flight

    General CommentThis song is loosely based on a conversation I had with our old bass player Alex. He was living by himself that summer and since he spent a lot of his time in our area of town due to his summer job, we hung out a lot. This particular conversation was one where we talked about people we'd known as we were growing up, who's lives had fallen apart. In many of these cases, they'd started out with so much talent, but for some reason things just hadn't worked out. While I could have speculated why this had happened, I thought I could communicate the weight of the problem if I focused mainly on the sadness I felt for these people. Run (Shattered and Twisted) is another one of those songs that sat around nearly finished for a long time. It was close to being finished in August 2005 and then when we decided to redo the album and add four new songs, I brought it out and added the bridge. To me at least, the bridge completed the song and harmonically, I really thought it added a depth that reflected the lyrics." - Nathan Piché (Article One)
