This is about a man who was stripped of his gold medal for taking drugs on the order of his government.

Like a statue he stood on the podium
With the world looking back in surprise
His hand crossed his heart as the anthem began
Tears welling up in his eyes

He ran for his country
He stood for the glory
It was all just deception and lies
The men in control said to take some of these then
Run for the gold or you'll die

Years and years have come and gone
Hanging your head still in shame
Run for the glory
stand for your country
take some of these or you'll die

The laboraroty tests have come back today
Hang your head in shame
Take away all your gold

There's stuff in your blood that shouldn't be there
Run with lies for the gold
Dreams of winning the super race
Dreams of growing old

Run for your country
Run for the glory
It's all just wasted in vein
The newspaper cut you down to size
You hang your head in shame

I saw you stand on that podium
Tears welling up in your eyes
You wish you take back that road you were on
Save the world from lies

A pile lies from the government
Lies from the trainers I know
You just ran for the finish line
Run for your life or you'll die

Run for the Gold

I make music for music sake. I'm not looking for fame or fortune, just having fun getting it out there. The way I work is basically all improvisational. I use Apple's Garage Band software to record and compose. A simple drum/metronome track is create... [see more]
