Keep Running

“”Keep Running” is based on a dream Mikey Athearn had about us blowing up Monsanto’s Headquarters. With corn.”

By Pinky Saxton


I remember you telling me a dream

As you were driving me back home

We had both piled into Fish, back when she was running

You said we were badass– in suits and shades

Out to destroy Monsanto

You tried to detonate some corn– you’re such a fool!

Oh Mikey! You and me!

Out to set the whole world free

‘Til we’re dead, fighting for the cause

Oh Mikey! Keep running!

These are Danger Days, my Motor Baby

I hope you never have to leave my side

Oh, Shell, we moved like ghosts

Placing C-4 ‘round the building

If you haven’t noticed I don’t give a flying fuck what you think it means symbolically!

I just wanna be together– off into the sunset!

Oh Mikey! You and me!

Out to set the whole world free

‘Til we’re dead, fighting for the cause

Oh Mikey! Keep running!

These are Danger Days, my Motor Baby

I hope you never have to leave my side

It’s too cliché for me

It’s too cliché for me

It’s too cliché for me

Take my hand and walk slow-motion to the car

As all that corn explodes around us– I can’t believe that really worked!

Just then, a tumble weed flew by –For a moment we were on that joy-ride– Is this too cliché for

you?

You pulled on your shades and replied: “Fuck yeah, it is!”

Oh Mikey! You and me!

Out to set the whole world free

‘Til we’re dead, fighting for the cause

Oh Mikey! Keep running!

These are Danger Days, my Motor Baby

I hope you never have to leave my side (no goodbyes)

It’s too cliché for me

It’s too cliché for me

It’s too cliché for me
