He got lost among the stars
Hollywood flash, cash, mansions and cars
Deep sea diver, Learjet flyer
Will this thing go to the moon, oh yeah
Give me elbow room, and for heaven's sake
Take this aching away

You can't run, you can't hide, from the Hound of Heaven
You're free to choose, can you refuse the Seeker of Souls

Hobo sleeping alone, he's in a dirty box car
He dreams of sailing to a tropical island one sweet day
Now, the thrill awakes him, there is no sunshine
This old train ain't really going there, oh no
Now, does anybody care, and for heaven's sake
Take this aching away

Oh, you can't run, you can't hide, from the Hound of Heaven
You're free to choose, can you refuse the Seeker of Souls

We got lost among the stars
Hollywood flash, cash, mansions and cars
Deep sea divers, Learjet flyers
Will this thing go to the moon, oh yeah
Give me elbow room, and for heaven's sake
Take this aching away

You can't run, you can't hide, from the Hound of Heaven
You're free to choose, can you refuse the Seeker of Souls

You can't run, you can't hide, from the Hound of Heaven
You're free to choose, can you refuse the Seeker of Souls
