All I wanted was to escape

and I thought that’s what I’d done.

But I guess I was too cocky

In thinking that I’d won.

I thought I could outrun it,

I thought I found my answer.

It’s finally catching up now

And I’ll lose this race for sure.

I thought I left my problems

Back home where they belong.

But they’ve found me here.

How could I be so wrong?

There are things I can’t escape.

They’re stuck with me forever.

Even though I tried,

it’s another failed endeavor.
