Lyrics

He takes his place, He's on his mark
His feet are on the starting blocks
The gun goes off, they watch the clock
There he goes

Each in his lane, they disappear
He's out in front, his course is clear
Nobody knows, they love him here
No one knows

Ready, set
Ready, set
Ready, set

He's been running, running for so long
He's been hiding, hiding and it's wrong
And he's hurting, but he must be strong
Cause he can't run from this

He is home, he takes his place
Musters strength, resumes the race
Tries to keep up with the pace
Of this lie

But he's tired and he's slow
He can't remember where to go
He can't place or even show
Or try

Ready, set
Ready, set
Ready, set

He's been running, running for so long
He's been hiding, hiding and it's wrong
He's been hurting, but he must be strong

Cause he can't run from this
He can't run
He can't run from this
He can't run
