You Can’t Run Away from Death


Oh you can’t run away from death
No time to pause and catch your breath
The end is coming, don’t look back
‘Cause when you stop, death will attack.

You can’t run, oh you can’t hide
For death will take you for a ride
Past the story of your life
Through all the tumult and the strife.

Oh you can’t run away from death
Don’t try to swim the river Lethe
Just do your best and stand your ground
Ignore the breath of death’s great hound.

You can’t run, oh you can’t hide
Death flows onward with the tide
Carrying all your sins and woes
To leave you gasping in the throes.

Oh you can’t run away from death
No time to pause and to catch your breath
The end is coming, so don’t look back
‘Cause when you stop, death will attack.
