we all run lyrics – magnum

i dreamt i saw the cities burning
at the gates i saw the angels cry
now there’ll be no turning
and still i wonder why

i dreamt i felt the hand of reason
coming slowly down, it p*ssed me by
it’s just the killing season
it’s a foolish lie

we all run – it’s a pity for everyone
it’s all gone – and there’s nothing that can be done
we all run – so get ready, the time has come
we all run – it’s all over, the game is won

and i dreamt i took a thousand footsteps
to a sea as black and filled with tears
now there’ll be no goodness
for a thousand years

i dreamt i crossed a raging river
that was pure and clear and washed away
all my troubles wither
into another day

we all run – it’s a pity for everyone
it’s all gone – and there’s nothing that can be done
we all run – so get ready, the time has come
we all run – it’s all over, the game is won

the cost is too much
in nothing we trust
everything we touch
turns into dust

we all run – it’s a pity for everyone
it’s all gone – and there’s nothing that can be done
we all run – so get ready, the time has come
we all run – it’s all over, the game is won

we all run – it’s a pity for everyone
it’s all gone – and there’s nothing that can be done
we all run – so get ready, the time has come
we all run – it’s all over, the game is won
