​Midnight Running

This song is by Pendragon and appears on the EP As Good As Gold (1996).

Midnight running
Are we homeward bound?
Pandora's box is lying open on the ground
Got needles in your backbone
Got those needles in your head
The spotlights flashing frozen in your tracks

And your just playing dead
You know you know you gotta go
Make a break for the border
Make the break of a life
Take your sons and daughters
Keep them safe right under your wing
Throw your past behind you
And put history to the knife

Too fast too bitter too late
To change your mind again
Too fast too bitter too late
It's driving you insane

Wherever I go I'll take you there
Whatever you say can't help me now
I've swallowed my pride
Let go the fear
Followed the tears
I'm so excited something new is about to happen

Midnight running
Have we lost our ground?
Freedom's in the hands of those who pickup on every sound
For he that stands alone and by his actions judged
Will carry the burden of a thousand souls
Lying helpless caged and drugged

You know you know you gotta go
The seeds are all now sown
It was written down in stone
Now the time has come to break away the chains
And midnight run alone tonight
And it's driving you insane

Wherever I go I'll take you there
Whatever you say can't help me now
I've swallowed my pride
Let go the fear
Followed the tears
I'm so excited something new is about to happen
(Repeat)

Can we cross the border?
Can we cross the water?
Will we keep our sons and daughters?
And finally see the bright light of freedom

The bright light of freedom

The rare light of freedom

The torchlight shines on the path ahead
And the weak walk in the footsteps we tread
To feel the warm light of freedom
