Super Mac - Running The Red Lights

This song was created for Game of Bands round 259 : "Random Random"

Lyrics:

Band: Super Mac
Album: Class Act
Song: Running the Red Lights


Following the flicker of a faded neon sign
Looking for the answers in an I that’s burning bright
Rain slicks all the streets and makes a soggy mess of mind
Filling up the gutters with grey water and self-doubt

Red lights are the highlight on a winding highway
They color more than cars and curves and pantomimes of day
A rush of signs and strangers’ lives run past along the way
A glance in the rearview reveals there’s no way out

Running, I’m still running
Running, I’m still running

They say that life’s a journey but I always lose the road
I’ve got no destination and there’s nowhere left to go
What if there’s no meaning and it’s all been just a show
Could you keep on moving onward with the little that you’ve got

And when you reach a dead end do you stop or turn around
Do you find a new way forward, do you find another town
Dashboard is glowing and the sun has long gone down
There’s a rugged, dark horizon where you’re seeking what’s been sought

Running, I’m still running
Running, I’m still running
Running, I’m still running
Running, I’m still running

Maybe if I slowed down I would see it’s not so bad
Maybe all those red lights are the best moments I’ve had

Running, I’m still running
Running, I’m still running
Running, I’m still running
Running, I’m running out of time
[Exit]
