i've been sitting here for many days now they've been looking for me for many days too from where im seated i can see their angry faces it's only a matter of time they'll be onto me the sirens, helicopters and tanks the blood hounds are on my trail - oh god
just in minutes they'll be tearing me apart if i don't do know what ive been doing all my life i've been running all my life i was running all my life
chorus im the running man, the fugitive (repeat)
seaking political asylum is not an easy thing down here - oh god my father had friends in high places and in low places too every time we asked him to stop running he would say: leave it onto me, I'll make it right today he's gone and still running
coyotes and vultures closing in on me I'll take it as a warning - oh god i'll be running, i'll be running because I am...
