lyrics

All these souls under Washington Square tell me to run, tell me to run
Yeah I know all these ghosts by name and where they’re from, yeah where they’re from
“And winter’s too cold here,” they holler, yes they holler from underground
Well I don’t know where to run to – if I’d be found, if I’d be found

Tell me to run
Tell me to run

Found a car with a broken tail light and I was gone, yeah I was gone
But I felt something yankin’ these chains, oh I was bound, yeah I was bound
“No, no don’t come back here,” they holler, yes they holler from out of town
Well I don’t know who to turn to - no one’s around, no one’s around

Tell me to run
Tell me to run

Well all I wanted was to go back to where I’m from
Yeah all I wanted was to go back to where I’m from
But the ghosts they told me to move on
Found a door, I stood here once, I even called it home
But the ghosts they knew my name and they told me to move on

Tell me to run
Tell me to run
Tell me to run

Headed back to the empire now; guess that’s where I belong
All these souls under Washington Square they say “stay strong,” they say “stay strong”
