"Run the Wire" as written by and Pieta Brown....
When you're standing in the kitchen late at night
Nobody's there to hold you tight
When you're looking for the sun
Hey run
Yeah run

When your best friend won't talk to you
And nobody else can see through you
Nobody's having any fun
Hey run
Yeah run

Oh greetings from the city
In the mail
Blue sun in a blood red veil
All your friends getting all dressed up
All your friends still getting messed up
Oh hey, yeah you better run

When you meet yourself walking out the door
And you just can't stand what you see anymore
When you're hoping tomorrow just don't come
Hey run
Yeah run

    My InterpretationThere it stood, a testament to his father taken to early. A wooden craft, left to wither and die in storage, out of place. The son gave his life to this vessel, "The Albatross". The sea called to him and he answered, hoping to find what had been lost. He left his wife and son in pursuit of closure, though all he found was anger in the gentle swells. The sea's indifference infuriated him. He wanted his father back from the blue. In the end he found the depths did not return the fallen. Instead they took another father so they may call another son.
