lyrics

Marathon Runner
(Clementine, 2008)

I think today rather than work
Keep on going the usual route
Past City Lights bookstore and all of the suits
Just a little further on the usual route

Once I get to the overpass
I kick through the needles and the broken glass
Though I never look behind
The city has already left my mind

Today I’ll keep down to the sea
This being landlocked it ain’t for me
Once I get a little look around
I bury my eyeballs in the sandy ground

What do you know I’m a marathon runner
Quick twitch trigger at the starting gate

What do you know I’m a marathon runner
Catch me as I cross the line

Today I think rather than hurt
Gonna keep on going to the end of the earth
I know I left kinda fast
Gonna run from the future and forget the past

What do you know I’m a marathon runner
Quick twitch trigger at the starting gate
What do you know I’m a marathon runner
Quick ditch lover on the fire escape
What do you know I’m a marathon runner
Late bloomed flower in a diamond mine

What do you know I’m a marathon runner
Catch me as I cross the line
