Just Run

One of my favorite bands, The Dresden Dolls, has a song called "Sing."
I love to hear this song while I run because I always fit the word "Sing" in with "Run." I change some other words around to fit and it works really well.
*When you're running for a while, or when your run really sucks, you tend to get creative!*

So for your pleasure, "Run"

There is this thing that's like working except you don't work
Back in the day it just went without saying at all
All the world's history gradually dying of shock
There is thing that's like
walking except you don't walk
You run
You run

Run for the bartender
for the janitor
Run for the cameras
run for the animals

Run for the children shooting the children
run Run for the teachers who told you that you couldn't run Just run

There is thing keeping everyone's lungs and hips locked
It is called fear and it's seeing a great renaissance
After the race you can not
run wherever you want
But for now lets all pretend that we're gonna get bombed
Run cause its obvious
for the astronauts
Run for the president
for the terrorists
run Run for the soccer team
run for the janjaweed
Run for the kid with the legs that refuse to run Just run
Life is no marathon
We don't care what you say
We're inviting you anyway
You motherfuckers you'll
run someday...

I love this! I'll have to try it slightly modified: "You motherfuckers you'll bike someday!"
