​Turn Your Back and Run

This song is by Demon Hunter and appears on the album Demon Hunter (2002).

I'm growing partial to detesting a disease in me
Its head swells into beautiful dependency
With teeth that feed on flesh and everything I swear I am not
A small price to bleed, give you everything that you want
Dancing with the spirit, giving heart to pump a dirty vein
Leaving with a scar, a uniform to bruise a perfect stain
Anything you hate will be the root of everything you breathe
Breathing in the dirt will leave you hating all that you conceive

I try to push myself up
I'm breaking from the inside
I'm slipping through the cracks and
I try to push it out of mind

Switch, switch
You've got to turn your back and run
Switch, switch
You've got to turn your back and run

To push it out is just a patch to fix a gaping wound
A brass tack to pin a hair and heal a broken tomb
I never thought I'd be the one to bring it down to this
My last thought is through a statement and a shattered fist
Face down, fearless
Light me up, end this
Face down, fearless
Light me up, end this

I try to push myself up
I'm breaking from the inside
I'm slipping through the cracks and
I try to push it out of mind

Switch, switch
You've got to turn your back and run
Switch, switch
You've got to turn your back and run

Microns from the flame head
Beat my hands to proceed nothing
Staring into souls with blind eyes
Taking the throne in my tiny hand

And chase it with the pain
And chase it with the pain
And chase it with the pain
You won't have life until you run, you got to give it all away

I try to push myself up
I'm breaking from the inside
I'm slipping through the cracks and
I try to push it out of mind

Switch, switch
You've got to turn your back and run
Switch, switch
You've got to turn your back and run
