Lyrics: 

Verse 1
Leave the town in a haze of dirt
(Running away, running away uh oh)
Blow the steam from my crowded head
(Running away, running away uh oh)
Yell so loud that I drown out the dead
(Running away running away)
Uh oh uh oh uh oh

Verse 2
Kill my hist'ry and who will know
(Call it a day, call it a day uh oh)
From now on it's a one man show
(Call it a day, call it a day uh oh)
Gonna party till the fatal blow
(Call it a day, call it a day)
Uh oh uh oh uh oh

Chorus
Oh yeah
Running away oh yeah
Running away oh yeah
Running away, way, way, way

Verse 3
Stunted words become screaming rage
(Giving it up, giving it up uh oh)
Freedom sings from across the bridge
(Giving it up, giving it up uh oh)
Worth all the fear to jump off the cliff
(What do you get, what do you get uh oh)
Run run run
What do you get
What do you get

Chorus
Oh yeah
Running away oh yeah
Running away oh yeah
Running away, way, way

Bridge
Will they miss my noise
(I don’t think so)
Will I be destroyed
(I don’t think so)
Maybe time's my foe
(Maybe I know)
Will they miss my noise
(I don’t think so)
Will I be destroyed
(I don’t think so)
Maybe time's my foe
(Maybe I know)
Maybe I know maybe I know

Always living

Outro chorus
Oh yeah
Running away oh yeah
Running away oh yeah
Running away, way, way, way
Oh yeah
Running away oh yeah
Running away oh yeah
Running away, way, way, way

Running away
Running away
Running away
Running away

This is great, i loved it. It has a really good energy, and it's really catchy. I liked the non-diatonic approach to some chord changes as well.

There was no demo so just going by the lyrics… they will definitely incite a mosh pit! Yeahhhh… they’re edgy and rocking. ‘Blow the steam from my crowded head’ was a stand out line IMO

Looking forward to hearing the demo!

@Jibbidy34 The demo is there, it's a SoundCloud link.... I'll put a link in the liner notes also just in case it's playing silly buggers Wink Thank you for letting me know x

Can’t resist that title! Well done! Really captures the feeling of needing to run away. But, fun, too!

This is so catchy! I like how the "uh ohs" are worked into the lyric. That first verse starts out with so many wonderful images and then we're off! Great production and all the vocal relaying is really effective. Well done all around!

I love the feel of the arrangement, there's aggression but it's really fun. This was a joy to listen to, I actually listened twice in a row because it was so much fun. Really nice work to both of you!

Yeah, rawk it! Love the blown-out vocals. The lyrics and vocals are so full of righteous punk rage and I love it. This is perfect!
