Aereogramme - The Running Man (Profile Song)

I lost my way in '87
And turned my heart and thoughts to heaven
A foolish boy
What could you do?
Aged eleven

I thought I was open but I was closed
I thought I had answers to show the world
I thought that the good light would guide me home

For thirteen years I hid away
And waited out the final days
But now there's time to live my life
As it decays
As it decays

I thought I was open but I was closed
I thought I had answers to show the world
I thought that the good light would guide me home
But no

As it decays

I thought I was open but I was closed (As it decays)
I thought I had answers to show the world (As it decays)
I thought that the light would guide me home

But no


________________________________________________________-

The lyrics above have great meaning to me. I've found myself in many points in my young life very easily influenced by religion, at points searching for it only when things went bad.

I thank this band (although they are no more), for putting my falling from grace (my family's words) into words.
