Run for Cover
The Killers Lyrics


What have you gathered to report to your progenitors?
Are your excuses any better than your senator's?
He held a conference and his wife was standing by his side
He did her dirty but no-one died

I saw Sonny Liston on the street last night
Black-fisted and strong singing Redemption Song
He motioned me to the sky
I heard heaven and thunder cry

Run for cover
Run while you can, baby, don't look back
You gotta run for cover
Don't be afraid of the fear, that's a played out trap, man
You know you're not the only one
And don't look back, just run for cover

What are you waiting for, a kiss or an apology?
You think by now you'd have an A in toxicology
It's hard to pack the car when all you do is shame us
It's even harder when the dirtbag's famous

I saw my mother on the street last night
All pretty and strong, singing 'The Road Is Long'
I said 'momma I know you've tried'
But she fell on her knees and cried

Run for cover
Run while you can, baby, don't look back
You gotta run for cover
Don't be afraid of the fear, that's a played out trap, man
I know you're not the only one
Don't look back, just run for cover

And there was nothing she wouldn't give
Just to trust him with her nightmares, with her dreams
She's running
She's running
Just to trust him
He got a big smile, he's fake news
Just run for cover, you've got nothing left to lose

Run for cover
Run while you can, baby, don't look back
You gotta run for cover
Don't be afraid of the fear, that's a played out trap, man
You know you're not the only one
And don't look back, just run for cover
Run
Run
(You know you're not the only)
Run for cover

I think this song is not only fantastic but it’s the last chapter to the Mr Brightside story.

In the second part Miss Atomic Bomb Brandon sings ‘ You run for cover’ which is the name of this song.Therefore I think there is a link and it is the last chapter. This chapter is telling the story of the women he fell in love with and the man she choose over him. She’s finally realising how evil and cruel he actually is and how she was wrong to go with him. Now she is trying to get back to Brandon somehow as she knows how much she truly loves Brandon.

It’s just a theory but I think it is the last chapter of the Mr Brightside story. For all I know there could be more and I’d like to see it.

Thank you The Killers for creating your music. I’ve been a huge fan of you guys since I was tiny and I love you guys so much ❤️

Love Els xx

Edit- My comment is just a theory on the tune I believe many have said its about Trump but it can be about that and the last chapter :) xx
Another edit- This is probably my oldest YouTube comment I'm glad I keep coming back to it because legends keep listening to this tune xx

I COME IN PEACE! Here's the lyrics:

[Verse 1]
What have you gathered to report to your progenitors?
Are your excuses any better than your senator's?
He held a conference and his wife was standing by his side
He did her dirty but no-one died

[Pre-Chorus 1]
I saw Sonny Liston on the street last night
Black-fisted and strong singing Redemption Song
He motioned me to the sky
I heard heaven and thunder cry

[Chorus]
Run for cover
Run while you can, baby, don't look back
You gotta run for cover
Don't be afraid of the fear, that's a played out trap, man
You know you're not the only one
And don't look back, just run for cover

[Verse 2]
What are you waiting for, a kiss or an apology?
You think by now you'd have an A in toxicology
It's hard to pack the car when all you do is shame us
It's even harder when the dirtbag's famous

[Pre-Chorus 2]
I saw my mother on the street last night
All pretty and strong, singing 'the road is long'
I said 'Momma I know you've tried'
But she fell on her knees and cried

[Chorus]
Run for cover
Run while you can, baby, don't look back
You gotta run for cover
Don't be afraid of the fear, that's a played out trap, man
I know you're not the only one
And don't look back, just run for cover

[Bridge]
And there was nothing she wouldn't give
Just to trust him with her nightmares, with her dreams
She's running, she's running
Just to trust him
He got a big smile, he's fake news
Just run for cover, you've got nothing left to lose

[Chorus]
Run for cover
Run while you can, baby, don't look back
You gotta run for cover
Don't be afraid of the fear, that's a played out trap, man
You know you're not the only one
And don't look back, just run for cover
Run
Run
Run for cover

Listening to the killers is like being a child again listening to music in my room. Finding music that makes you feel in a way no music has ever made you feel. I cant narrow down the emotions... cant describe the happiness in my heart this music delivers
