lyrics

You've had enough, it's rough, I know
No two ways around
You gotta come clean, yeah, you gotta come clean
How you gonna come clean now ?

Run, run
Far beneath the sun
Elijah, drop your gun
Your world has got no armor on

Go out to your palace of glass
Go home to your castle of white
Go on, wipe your feet at the door
As you have done, done all your life

Run, run
Far beneath the sun
Elijah, drop your gun
Your world has got no armor on
Run, run
Far beneath the sun
Elijah, drop your gun
Your world has got no armor on

You stared down the mirror, you watched it crash
Now you're standing on broken glass
No way to get this wrong undone
Are you ready to run ?

If they got you tied a little too tight
Now, honey, don't let them know
Fade to the left, take a big deep breath
On your mark, get set, just go, just go

Run, run
Far beneath the sun
Elijah, drop your gun
Your world has got no armor on
Run, run, run
Elijah, drop your gun, son

You stared down the mirror, yeah, you watched it crash
Now you're standing on broken glass
No way to get this wrong undone
Are you ready to run ?

Run, run
Far beneath the sun
Elijah, drop your gun
Your world has got no armor on
Just run

about

Mieka Pauley Brooklyn, New York

Mieka Pauley possesses a voice that flows like good whiskey and a frankness that makes Alanis Morissette look shy. She conjures up a sonic immediacy with the same masterful command as Ani DiFranco with driving, yearning melodies that stand alongside the work of Michelle Shocked, Neko Case and Emmylou Harris. ... more
