lyrics

well, ya thought ya made a clean break, but I saw ya hop that train

with a satchel and a chip on your shoulder in the bitter winter rain

you can only cheat the cards until the dealer kicks ya outta the game

you'll always be yourself no matter how often you change your name


no matter how far you run, you'll never outrun yourself

it's no surprise your factory of lies is poisoning your well


so now you're runnin down the sleeper car, tryin to avoid detection

but I tell ya this train is runnin off the rails

the emergency break handle's broken off – there ain't no stoppin' her now

you're like a mineshaft collapsing underneath the hills


you're like a stowaway at the baggage-claim

you're like a fugitive wearin old blood stains

red sky at midnight – you'll never get away


so ya hit that dusty trail, you think that nobody's spotted you

but I've got your number down, you're in my sights now, I know I've got a shot at you

yeah ya hit that dusty trail, you're ankles all blistered and bruised

and your nostrels burn from the smoke of the burning rubber on your shoes


but no matter how far you run, you'll never outrun yourself

it's no surprise your factory of lies is poisoning your well


you're like a stowaway at the baggage-claim

you're like a fugitive wearin old blood stains

red sky at midnight – you'll never get away
