about

This is a re-working of the song which originally appeared on our 1995 debut album "Welcome To The Carnival". Probably the most powerful song on the this album.

This is a song about someone hitting rock bottom in their life. Stealing, begging and eventually killing then going on the run. A song inspired by Spear Of Destiny's "Never Take Me Alive".

lyrics

ON THE RUN

In a dirty bed sit
In the dead end part of town
The wolves are at my door
And I'm begging a pound
I steel a gun and shoot a stranger
I'm not the man i used to be

What have i done (What have I done)
What have i done (I'm on the run)
What have i done (I pulled the trigger)
I'm on the run (Just for fun)

In a railway station
Platform 2 is where I'm found
Held up in a luggage van
On a train that's nowhere bound
I'm heading for a cold asylum
The sound of sirens all around

What have i done (What have I done)
What have i done (I'm on the run)
What have i done (I pulled the trigger)
I'm on the run (Just for fun)

Oh momma
It wasn't my gun
The trigger just slipped
All we were doing was having some fun
The law are on my back
I'm a wanted man
Oh Momma, oh Momma
Help me if you can
I'm not going down
I'm not going down
Can't you see, can't you hear, can't you feel
I'm out of control

What have i done (What have I done)
What have i done (I'm on the run)
What have i done (I pulled the trigger)
I'm on the run (Just for fun)
What have i done (What have I done)
What have i done (I'm on the run)
What have i done (I pulled the trigger)
I'm on the run (Just for fun)
