Run Crab Run

RUN CRAB RUN (J Neo Marvin)

When you give up on giving in
Some people turn against you
And there’s not much you can do
When you speak your truth
You find out who your friends are
And who’s waiting to slap you down

When a small-minded soul wants to be right
Some one else has to be wrong
How much effort will you make to win respect from
People you just can’t respect

One morning you’re going to get it at last
One morning you’re going to see through everything
One morning the sun will break the clouds apart
So get ready for a bumpy ride ahead.

One morning you might wake up
And you’ll realize how unsatisfied you are
One day you’re going to look around
And tell yourself things don’t look as cut and dried
One day you’ll see with new eyes
And you’ll notice all the shades of gray you never saw before
And that’s when it will hit you
Just how gray everything around you has become

One morning you’re going to get it at last
One morning you’re going to see through everything
One morning the sun will break the clouds apart
So get ready for a bumpy ride ahead.

Stupid chatter in the square
Empty calories on the air
Hey what’s that crawling down there
Underneath the pedestal
When the breakthroughs break your heart
Reboot and then restart
And you can’t go home again
So you make home where you stand
And your world is empty now
And your eyes are open now
You can take the first step now
Jump out of the pot.
Run crab run!
