red headed stepchild lyrics – golden smog

h*llo darkness, come on in
let me light a candle
imaginations runnin’
hands start to tremble

knows enough to know not to believe
what is real and what it seems to be
knows what’s keepin’ him from bein’ free
right outside your door

don’t run away
red headed stepchild
i can only promise
you won’t find your way back home

in another room there’s laughin’
entertainin’ strangers
walls in there, don’t breathe no more
but they’re keepin’ out some angels

laughed so much, he almost cried
stranger offers him a ride
city blocks roll on by
never comin’ back

don’t run away
red headed stepchild
i can only promise
you won’t find your way back home

take your pictures off my wall
i hate to look at strangers
then it’s burnin’ be forewarned
keep me out of danger

knows enough to know not to believe
what is real and what it seems to be
knows what’s keepin’ him from bein’ free
right outside your door

don’t run away
red headed stepchild
i can only promise
you won’t find your way back home

don’t run away
red headed stepchild
i can only promise
you won’t find your way back home
find your way back home
