Run Lyrics

Are these times contagious
I've never been this bored before
Is this the prize I've waited for
Now as the hours passing
There's nothing left here to mature
I long to find a messenger

Have I got a long way to run [x2]
Yeah, I run...

    A person bored with their purpose on earth stuck in a modern society of complete consumerism with no "messenger". Instead of faith buying back nostalgia to make one happy just leads to emptiness with no purpose. Instead of finding purpose in the right place, we seem to look for it in the wrong way.

    I think its also about dealing with your mortality. "have I got a long way to run?" as you get older you understand the reality of your death better than when you were a child. how long will the rest of my life be.

    Simply, adulthood is not all it is cracked up to be. Let's buy back memories of who we used to be and how we used to live life. Adulthood is boring at times, but as kids we are running as fast as we can to 21 only to end up running the other way soon.

    The song is about missing the youthful days.

    This song is awesome!! :) it's about being young and impatient because you want to grow up. but the guy is saying enjoy youth because you have "a long way to run" in adulthood. (and being adult isn't all its cracked up to be)
