lyrics

this city haunts me
try to get out
too many broken hearts live here
bad memories line me
strengthen my bones
this place I still call my home

kept from your evening
I’m running
look who sacrificed everything
it is my pleasure to be alone
pretending
concealing
eliminating
rearranging
I don’t live here anymore

too many faces
remind me of what
I wish I could leave behind me
all of those faces
once my old friends
no harm was meant but I’m running

kept from your evening
I’m running
look who sacrificed everything
it is my pleasure to be alone
pretending
concealing
eliminating
rearranging
I don’t live here anymore

practicing freedom
spoiled the run
controlled happiness will cure me
emptied my weekend
broken again
yes, but I’m too busy running

kept from your evening
I’m running
look who sacrificed everything
it is my pleasure to be alone
pretending
concealing
eliminating
rearranging

pretending
practicing
my freedom draining
imitating
I don’t live here anymore
