RUN – It’s time to leave this place behind
RUN – It isn’t safe on ground or sky
RUN – There’s nothing left for me out here
RUN – I need a safe place, free from fear

HEY, YOU – STOP! They will not let me run away
STOP! They give me no choice but to stay
STOP! I’ll go where I cannot be found
STOP! It’s time to retreat underground

Walk beside me, Asteroth
Lead me away from the lost
Digging holes to use for transit
We will live beneath the dirt

Walk beside me, Metatron
Can you shelter me for long?
I’ll crawl back into the womb now (So warm inside)
I descend into the Earth (I’ll lie within)
