Running (2005)

(Dave Lewis)
Agit-pop meets trip-hop. And a hard head makes a hard edge too.
Running

Hammam waits for the border guard
His body sweats and the sun burns hard
In searing heat from the midday sun
He’ll soon become another chosen one

Running- the ground’s hard beneath your running feet
Running- the sun burns in the midday heat

High sky above the poppy fields
Dust breaks beneath the vehicle wheels
Loaded up with forbidden fruit
Full to ready with its golden juice

Running- the ground’s hard beneath your running feet
Running- the sun burns in the midday heat

Running come along and we’ll take the ride
Running come with me where the road is wide

Shy boy beneath the city-scape
Johnny sleeps emerging from the wait
Two planes flying overhead
Another dollar sent in from the dead

Running- the ground’s hard beneath your running feet
Running- the sun burns in the midday heat

I saw you there in the shadow of the street
Your knees shaking on your tired feet
Hands ties round the bloody knife
Another runner in the game of life

Running- the ground’s hard beneath your running feet
Running- the sun burns in the midday heat
