The Runners

The Boots have stormed the building
ransacked every box
Beaten broken prisoners
discovered tampered locks

They’ve boarded up the sewers
unleashed dogs about the floor
Pored through camera footage
stuck guards at every door

We are the runners
the runners from hell
The captives of war
left to rot in a cell

We are the runners
escaping our fate
Forgotten prisoners
facing up to the hate

Shots echo in the chain yard
lights slash the ashen night
Sirens wail at blind walls
choppers scramble out of sight

Hearts keep thudding harder as we fight through jagged trees
Desperation in the darkness
hope is focussed on the Keys

We are the runners
the runners from hell
The captives of war
left to rot in a cell

We are the runners
escaping our fate
Forgotten prisoners
facing up to the hate

Mother, father
sister, brother
God please bring us
all together
Take me, help me
home to heaven
I am tired of
all this livin'
So, so tired of
so-called livin'
Let me rest in
peace in heaven

Freedom is a feeling
we just barely recall
Waterboarding torture
has destroyed almost all

If we can make the Keys
there's a ship to stowaway
International waters
a slim chance to be OK

We are the runners
the runners from hell
The captives of war
left to rot in a cell

We are the runners
escaping our fate
Forgotten prisoners
facing up to the hate

Lungs gasp and grasp for air as we battle brush and trees
Desperation is a driver
hope is focussed on the Keys

We are the runners
escaping our fate
Forgotten prisoners
facing up to the hate
