Down Forward, Down Forward, Triple Punch

Like a deer in the headlights
You have been caught out
Far too concerned
With the greener grass on the other side
Then suddenly you hear
The footsteps drawing near
With nowhere to hide
You’re out of time
So you run

Runway runaway, wandering so aimlessly
This is your night, what are you waiting for?
We walk this lonely path right by your side
You and your gun, waiting for the night
You’re staring down, staring down, stare down the sight at me
Choose your words carefully
It’s time for this to end

Out in the cold, our bodies shaking
Lost in the shadows, as we grow numb

Forever waiting, this choice won’t fade away
Suppress your fears now
It’s never easy to break free and face the truth
There’s nothing left to loose

Save me I pray
Save me I pray
Gather your thoughts from within
Make your escape from this sin
Free yourself
