lyrics

On the run from Eden
Chasing out my sins
Mamma, oh mamma, oh mamma,
They just keep coming

Sure I had a reason
Back there at the beginning
Mamma, oh mamma, oh mamma,
I just keep running

I don’t want to fight with you no more
I don’t want to fight with you no more
I don’t want to fight with you no more
I don’t want to fight with you no more

We’ve blown the warning signs
In the holes where we dig in
Mamma, oh mamma, oh mamma,
We just keep digging

Broken by design
Through the thickness of our skin
Mamma, oh mamma, oh mamma,
We’re bound for ruin

I don’t want to fight with you no more
I don’t want to fight with you no more
I don’t want to fight with you no more
I don’t want to fight with you no more

It’s just another stakeout, it’s the
Gift that just keeps giving
It’s the tension and the torsion
And the strain

It’s just another promise that got
Lost while we were spinning
It’s the blueprint for the block-out
And the blame
And we’ll do it all again
