Lyrics:

Run rebel run around
You've got your feet stuck in the ground
Run rebel run around
You've got your feet stuck in the ground
You've got your feet stuck in the ground

You're not a keystone
You're willingly on your own
You're not gonna try and find
a supporting arch in this state of mind

You won't take to a smother
You're unlike any other
But your fire is tired and uninspired

Why the long face?
Constantly in outer space,
out of place in your mind
You think you're out of luck
Desperate Rebel stuck in this moment in time

So break on and break out
Spit that whiskey out of your mouth
And go find something you can't live without
Well this state is simply fleeting
It's your stand still clout that's so demeaning
So you better move and prove that you're attitude it worth keeping

You're like a fall leaf in June
The one who laughs while others swoon
You don't want to meet and greet
That's below your feet
So you hide out in your room

Oh you don't wanna fall in love
Nobodys gonna breach your kingdom
'Cause you're walls start buried
Deep in the ground
Oh yeah, buried deep in the ground

Yeah yeah yeah
Oh no now,

Why the long face?
Constantly in outer space,
out of place in your mind
You think you're out of luck
Desperate Rebel stuck in this moment in time

Why the long face?
Constantly in outer space,
out of place in your mind
You think you're out of luck
Desperate Rebel stuck in this moment in time

So break on and break out
Spit that whiskey out of your mouth
And go find something you can't live without
'Cause this state is simply fleeting
It's your stand still clout that's so demeaning
So you better move and prove that you're attitude it worth keeping

Oh woah woah woah
Oh woah woah woah
Yeah yeah
Oh woah, oh woah

Oh woah woah woah
Oh woah woah woah
Yeah yeah yeah

Run rebel run around
You've got your feet stuck in the ground
Run rebel run around
You've got your feet stuck in the ground
