Run or Lose

the race is on now
who takes the lead?
you’re born to run
once you stand on your two feet
get up, get faster
don’t take a look
the steps you take
are all written in the book
like a machine
you can’t give up
you’re programmed well
record-breaking, never stop

will you run and run forever?
but any thought could stop the fuse
oh-oh – you can fight the urge of fighting
while your brain says run or lose

it’s now or never
and every day
no time to rest
give up the lead will never pay
take the advantage
agenda strikes
play pranks on someone
anyway you need the likes

will you run and run forever?
but any thought could stop the fuse
oh-oh – you can fight the urge of fighting
while your brain says run or lose

for many years I have been lying to myself
tried to fulfil what others meant for me
had no idea where that came from
but still I followed, carried on
had no idea who I wanted to be
parents, school, job, odd relationships, society
I kept a promise, I didn’t know I gave
but I can stop here and find out
what I need and what I doubt
and I don’t ever face again this run or lose

oh oh – you stumble
you’re losing track
you catch a breath
a world appears behind your back
you couldn’t cope
something has changed
a flurry vision
everything newly arranged
consideration
attentiveness
a heart to follow
rhythm of your thoughtfulness
dump expectations!
your plan, your life!
slow down if needed
speed is not the rule to strive – for

for many years I have been lying to myself
tried to fulfil what others meant for me
had no idea where that came from but still I
followed, carried on
had no idea who I wanted to be
parents, school, job, odd relationships, society
I kept a promise, I didn’t know I gave
but I can stop here and find out
what I need and what I don’t
and I don’t ever face again this run or lose

for many years I have been lying
to myself, tried to fulfil
what others meant for me, but still
I carried on and on
all expect me to be sane
like someone staying in the lane
but now I stop here and cool down
no more run or lose
