[Verse 1]
He tip toes, from brick to brick
And skips the cracks or he gets sick
Counting sheep, losing sleep
Now his lids are heavy set
Run for it, they're on the prowl
These demons never make a sound
Cries ignored, this cardboard box
Will keep him dry for now

[Chorus]
Why do I give in
When I know it's not the only answer
Run away to save my skin
When my angst is growing like a cancer
And oh, the things we'll say
When we're standing in our way
Maybe soon this all will be
A distant memory

[Verse 2]
There might as well be blood stains on this carpet floor
He's laying face down wondering what fighting back is for
Don't even give 'em a chance to knock you down
Don't even give 'em a chance to knock you down
And I'll be singing' when I turn around
La la la la la la

[Chorus]
Why do I give in
When I know it's not the only answer
Run away to save my skin
When my angst is growing like a cancer
And oh, the things we'll say
When we're standing in our way
Maybe soon this all will be
A distant memory

[Bridge]
Wars waged on life
We wave it in defeat
Take down the white
Soldier on your feet
I march head strong
To shout aloud that, "Now I'm free"

[Chorus]
Why do I give in
When I know it's not the only answer
Run away to save my skin
When my angst is growing like a cancer
And oh, the things we'll say
When we're standing in our way
Maybe soon this all will be
A distant memory

[Outro]
A distant memory (hush, hush)
A distant memory (hush, hush)
A distant memory (hush, hush)
La la la la la la
Don't even give 'em a chance to knock you down
Don't even give 'em a chance to knock you down
And I'll be singing when I turn around
