John Perry Barlow - We Can Run, But We Can't Hide lyrics

[Verse 1] We don't own this place, though we act as if we did It's a loan from the children of our children's kids The actual owners haven't even been born yet But we never tend the garden and rarely we pay the rent Some of it is broken and the rest of it is bent Put it all on plastic and I wonder where we'll be when the bills hit [Chorus] We can run But we can't hide from it Of all possible worlds We only got one We got to to ride on it Whatever we've done We'll never get far from what we leave behind Baby, we can run, run, run, but we can't hide Oh no, we can't hide [Verse 2] I'm dumping my trash in your back yard Making certain you don't notice really isn't so hard You're so busy with your guns and all of your excuses to use them Well, it's oil for the rich and babies for the poor We got everyone believing that more is more If a reckoning comes, maybe we will know what to do then All these complications seem to leave no choice I heard the tongues of billions speak with just one voice Saying, "Just leave all the rest to me I need it worse than you, you see." And then I heard The sound of one child crying Today I went walking in the amber wind There's a hole in the sky where the light pours in I remembered the days when I wasn't afraid of the sunshine But now it beats down on the asphalt land Like a hammering blow from God's left hand What little still grows cringes in the shade like a bad vine [Chorus][x3][Fade]
