Flip the SwitchTurning on the light in a dark room
You dont really want to.
You dont really need to.
But you have to.
Its not that you want to have to.
Its not like you have to need to
But more that you need to have to
And you have to want to
Because you have to chase them away
Because walking into a dark room
Without switching on the light
Could be all the proof youll ever need
To know that theyre really there
That they re not.
Because if theyre not there
It will only go to prove
That all this time youve been scared of nothing
Nothing all along
And if youre scared of nothing
Then you really have a problem
When something decides to come your way.
Run AwayDo you ever wish you could just run away?
Just open the door and walk out
On all your shortcomings, the demands youre not meeting,
On ditching your dreams to pretend you dont care
On the forked paths that people are forcing your down, disguising them as choices?
But you have to stay put.
You have to face forward and sit it out.
Because its all part of growing up, right?
Listen to me, kid.
Put on your Jimi Hendrix T-shirt, crawl into your battered jeans and lace up your Allstars.
Then you run away
Away, away, away, before those clothes youve just put on are nothing but a faded reminder of what you used to be: A person instead of a machine.
Keep Running. Keep running for as long as you possibly can, until theres a stitch in your side and you throat has gone dry and you lungs are on fire, gasping for breath
Because, sooner or later, its going to catch up to you. Just when you think you can run no more, a car will stop by and offer you a lift.
