Lyrics:

We built us an empire,
Drank it to the floor.
Losing ourselves nightly,
And the next day back for more.

In the back of Tony's,
Winding tunes with Bud.
Something stumbles past me,
Looks like Grady's on the Run.

But it's overcast so, we don't see
Our shadows cast us, in mediocrity.
Street light show us, what we've become,
And in the midst of it all…Grady's on the run.

Hey there little momma,
I've seen you before.
Think I've heard your drama,
From the room next door.

If you're somebody's baby,
You better set things straight.
Another blackberry brandy and,
Tomorrow is another day.

But it's overcast so, we don't see
Our shadows cast us, in mediocrity.
Street light shows us, what we've become,
And in the midst of it all…Grady's on the run.

Not sure where we are now,
You can see it in my face.
Wrong turn back on Chestnut,
Let's just break into this place.

Think I see somebody,
Sitting up on the balcony.
Time to turn and run now,
Or it's a squirrel's life for me.

But its, overcast so, we don't see
Our shadows cast us, in mediocrity.
Street light shows us what we've become
And in the midst of it all…Grady's on the run, Nah, no, no…on the run, on the run.
