Treasure Island

Responsibilities


Run! Run fast, run quick, run far;
It's what they taught you,
It's the example they gave you.
Run! Run quick, run fast, run far!

Are you running hard enough me lad?
No? Oh please, do! Quicker, faster!
You burst someone's window?
Please, run. Hide! I allow.

You got into a fight?
Not matter less. Run, hide!
Just pass the buck little chap.
To you, no blame, no mishap.

Or did you tear somebody's heart apart?
Don't worry, com'on. Just run, hard!
For as long as you're able to deny,
Victory's always thine..
