It's not like I could ever really choose
An outcome I'm not inclined to refuse
Destiny's told me it's prime time to lose

I am running
Unphased by my limbs' requests to hold back
Each mile is a marker of how deep I've fallen
And it grows worse as my sneakers slam into the Earth
I frantically sprint backwards
Away from what never really was

Embarking on my labored journey
For the sake of the meaningless
Close to finally grasping the reality
That I will never catch up
With whatever it is I am chasing

Jagged branches collide
With the hollowed face
That I've grown accustomed
To observing in the mirror

I will continue to deny reason
So I can overcome all that plagues me
By escaping it forever

I run like the devil trails me
But even he saw this coming before it began

So I let go

Drowning in my strange seclusion
Motives springing from delusion
I have hit my sound conclusion
