lyrics

You're so innocent, you're so innocent
No, your blame is in your blood
Your name is in the mud
You try to reconcile, you try to reconcile
But your uncle's always there
And you still have your father's curly hair
The other youth hide in the tower when the smoke's begin to rise
Almighty Clock rings out the hour and it lights the owl's eyes
But you can't plug into your power where your great-grandfather lies
Though you kiss the headstone

Oh, you gotta run, run like a bomb is ticking

Who me? I'm not with him
I've never seen him before in my life
I think I'd recognize someone with such shady eyes
I'm sorry but I'm no scapegoat
I'm not taking the fall for this one
You're on your own

Oh, you gotta run, run, run like the hunt is behind you
Like a bomb is ticking and you're out just in time
From the flood, from the flame
Oh, you gotta run, run, run like the hunt is behind you
Like a bomb is ticking and you're out just in time
But you go and say her name

And now it's maybe, maybe
It's maybe, maybe

I'll put my name up on the wire if you won't take it vain
They'll raise the razor ever higher till it settles in a stain
But you can smuggle out my fire and lay in on the lane
There's a pretty blonde waiting on the other side of the state line
You left her alone

Oh, you gotta run, run, run like the hunt is behind you
Like a bomb is ticking and you're out just in time
From the flood, from the flame
Oh, you gotta run, run, run like the hunt is behind you
Like a bomb is ticking and you're out just in time
Before you go, say her name

Say her name, say her name
Before you go, say her name
Say her name, say her name
Before you go, say her name
Say her name, say her name
Before you go, before you go
Before you go, say her name
Say her name, say her name 'cause she's so innocent

David Alan Thornton New York, New York

Alaska-raised, NYC-based, singer-songwriter David Alan Thornton has has been called "too open-minded for the Midwest and too open-hearted for New York." As a performer, his "soulful vocal stylings compliment confessional lyrics that border on literary greatness." With a sound in the middle of David Bowie and Cat Stevens, you might call him an alternative-folk-rock singer, but who really knows? ... more
