I´ve lied to you
The same way that I always do
This is the last smile
That I´ll fake for the sake of being with you

(Everything falls apart even the people who never frown eventually break down)
The sacrifice of hiding in a lie
(Everything has to end you´ll soon find we´re out of time left to watch it all unwind)
The sacrifice is never knowing

Why I never walked away
Why I blamed myself this way
Now I see your testing me pushes me away
Why I never walked away
Why I blamed myself this way
Now I see your destiny pushes me away

I´ve tried like you
To do everything you wanted to
This is the last time
I´ll take the blame for the sake of being with you

(Everything falls apart even the people who never frown eventually break down)
The sacrifice of hiding in a lie
(Everything has to end you´ll soon find we´re out of time left to watch it all unwind)
The sacrifice is never knowing

Why I never walked away
Why I blamed myself this way
Now I see your testing me pushes me away
Why I never walked away
Why I blamed myself this way
Now I see that destiny pushes me away

(We´re all outta time, this is how we find how it all unwinds)
The sacrifice of hiding in a lie
(We´re all outta time, this is how we find how it all unwinds)
The sacrifice is never knowing

Why I never walked away
Why I played myself this way
Now I see your destiny pushes me away
Why I never walked away
Why I blame myself this way
Now I see that destiny pushes me away
She can´t hide no matter how hard she tries
Her secret disguised behind the lies
And at night she crys away her pride
With eyes shut tight staring at her inside
All her friends know why she can´t sleep at night
All her family askin´ if she´s alright
All she wants to do is get rid of this hell
Well all she´s got to do is stop kiddin´ herself

She can only fool herself for so long
She can only fool herself for so long
She can only fool herself for so long
She can only fool herself!

I´m too weak to face me

I never know
Just why you run
So far away, far away from me
I never know
Just why you run
So far away, far away from me

When it comes to how to live his life he can´t be told
Says he´s got it all under control
Thinks he knows it´s not a problem he´s stuck with
But in reality it would be a problem to just quit
An addict and he can´t hold the reigns
The pain is worse cause his friends have it the same
Tries to slow down the problem he´s got
But can´t get off the carousel until he makes it stop

He can only fool himself for so long
He can only fool himself for so long
He can only fool himself for so long
He can only fool himself!

I´m too weak to face me

I never know
Just why you run
So far away, far away from me
I never know
Just why you run
So far away, far away from me

Fly with me under the wings I gave you
Try to be closer to me and I´ll save you
Fly with me under the wings I gave you
Try to be closer to me and I´ll save you

I never know
Just why you run
So far away, far away from me

I never know
Just why you run
So far away, far away from me

I never know
Just why you run
So far away, far away from me
Graffiti decorations
Under the sky of dust
A constant wave of tension
On top of broken trust
The lessons that you taught me
I learned were never true

Pre chorus:
Now I find myself in question
They point the finger at me again
Guilty by association
You point the finger at me again

I wanna run away
Never say goodbye
I wanna know the truth
Instead of wondering why
I wanna know the answers
No more lies
I wanna shut the door
And open up my mind

Paper bags and angry voices
Under a sky of dust
Another wave of tension
Has more than filled me up
All my talk of taking action
These words were never true

Pre chorus
Chorus
I’m gonna run away, and never say goodbye
Gonna run away (2x)
I’m gonna run away and never wonder why
Gonna run away (2x)
I’m gonna run away and open up my mind
Gonna run away (4x)

Chorus
I wanna run away and open up my mind (Repeat until end)
Yo
Watch as the room rocks
Mentally moon walk
Mixed media slang
Banging in your boom box
Verbal violence
Lyrical stylist
In a time when rock hip hop rhymes are childish
You can´t tempt me with rhymes that are empty
Rapping to a beat doesn´t make you an emcee
With your lack of skill and facility
You´re killing me
And a DJ in the group just for credibility
I heard that some of you are getting help with your rhymes
You´re not an emcee if someone else writes your lines
Rapping over rock doesn´t make you a pioneer
Cause rock and hip hop have collaborated for years
But now they´re getting randomly mixed and matched up
All after a fast buck and all the tracks suck
So how does it stack up
None of it´s real
You want to be an emcee you´ve got to study the skill

Who can rock a rhyme like this
Bring it to you every time like this
Who can rock a rhyme like this
Step, step up, step, step up

So you pick up a pen and write yourself a new identity
But mentally you don´t have the hip hop energy
With a tendency to make up stories
Sounding like the only hip hop you´ve heard is top 40 (top 40)
And your record company is completely missing it
All the kids are dissing it for not being legitimate
So in a battle you can´t hack it
React with whack shit
And get smacked with verbal back flips
Get your ass kicked by fabulous battle catalysts
It´s taken decades for emcees to establish this
You´re new to hip hop and welcome if your serious
But not on the mic
Leave that to the experienced

Using the waves of sound the true master
Paralyzes his opponents, leaving him vulnerable to attack

Who can rock a rhyme like this
Bring it to you every time like this
Who can rock a rhyme like this
Step, step up, step, step up

Who can rock a rhyme like this
Bring it to you every time like this
Who can rock a rhyme like this
Step, step up, step, step up, step up

After years of pain staking research by the world´s
Leading sound scientists, we here at the sound
Institute have invented a reliable audio weapons system.
Actual movement of musical sound in space used to
Carefully attack and neutralize the cellular structure of
The human body, so the question must be asked.

Who can rock a rhyme like this
Bring it to you every time like this
Who can rock a rhyme like this
Step, step up ,step, step up

Who can rock a rhyme like this
Bring it to you every time like this
Who can rock a rhyme like this
Step, step up, step, step up, Step up!

Unnamed announcer): Folks, we have a very special guest for you tonight.
I´d like to introduce...
Mr. Hahn!
A cigarette for the great Mr. Hahn?
And now for a lesson in rhythm management.
Let´s begin...
Alright now, wasn´t that fun?
Let´s try something else.
It starts with one thing
I don´t know why
It doesn´t even matter how hard you try keep that in mind
I designed this rhyme
To explain in due time
All I know
Time is a valuable thing
Watch it fly by as the pendulum swings
Watch it count down to the end of the day
The clock ticks life away
It´s so unreal
Didn´t look out below
Watch the time go right out the window
Trying to hold on, but didn´t even know
Wasted it all just to watch you go
I kept everything inside and even though I tried, it all fell apart
What it meant to me will eventually be a memory of a time when

I tried so hard
And got so far
But in the end
It doesn´t even matter
I had to fall
To lose it all
But in the end
It doesn´t even matter

One thing, I don´t know why
It doesn’t even matter how hard you try, keep that in mind
I designed this rhyme, to explain in due time
I tried so hard
In spite of the way you were mocking me
Acting like I was part of your property
Remembering all the times you fought with me
I´m surprised it got so (far)
Things aren´t the way they were before
You wouldn´t even recognize me anymore
Not that you knew me back then
But it all comes back to me (in the end)
You kept everything inside and even though I tried, it all fell apart
What it meant to me will eventually be a memory of a time when I

Chorus

I’ve put my trust in you
Pushed as far as I can go
And for all this
There´s only one thing you should know (2x) Chorus
