Black Swamp Water — Run lyrics

So they’ve got his whole world planned
In each and every conceivable order
And so, so he meets the demands
Makes sure that he doesn’t fall short of
All of his fate that he must fulfil
And all that remains for him to do still
When he lies awake in his bed at night
He knows that he, he must do more to do right
‘Cause they tell him to

“Run, boy, run, just as fast you can
Don’t worry ‘bout right or wrong
Run as fast as it takes to be a man
Don’t stop and think too long
Just run boy, run,
Run along now, run”
[ Lyrics from: ]
