You see me in a foreign face
In ships that sink without trace
In your father's doubt
Will he praise or shout?
Behind the burning cross
Begrudged imagined loss

When you run to me
Run to me
Run to me
You try to fly
But you cannot fly
You try to hide
But I'm by your side

You run from me
Run from me
Run from me
I am the adversary
I am the adversary
I am the adversary
I am your foe
I go where you go

Between ideals and fact
Between the thought and the act
You sink without trace
Grow to hate your face
Will you sell all you own
To be in a shadow by a throne

Will you run to me
Run to me
Run to me?
You try to fly
But you cannot fly
You try to hide
But I'm by your side

You try to run from me
Run from me
Run from me
I am the adversary
I am the adversary
I am the adversary
I am your foe
I go where you go

You will see me behind every door
You need not look for me at all
To her I'm just another
To her I am unknown

On your shoulder her hand lightly rests
As she lets fall her soft summer dress
Without self-consciousness or floating off in sleep
Without intention as triumphs amid all defeat
She moves in her own sheltered way
My invisible hands are not at play

To her I'm just another
To her I am unknown

From the cold snow into the water
To her I'm just an unknown
To her I am unknown

(Run from me
Run from me
Run from me)

(Run from me
Run from me
Run from me)

I am your foe
I go where you go
(Run from me
Run from me
Run from me)

I am your foe
I go where you go
(Run from me
Run from me
Run from me)

I am your foe
I go where you go
(Run from me
Run from me
Run from me)

I am your foe
I go where you go
(Run from me
Run from me
Run from me)

I am your foe
I go where you go
(Run from me
Run from me
Run from me)
