He was never not stoned, but he was always on time
He had a history of running away from all the things that made him pent up inside
Now he's lying face down with the police surrounding him
It turns out that running away was all it took to do Freddy in

Been running away again, we can't seem to face our sins
They'll say don't you go running to fast you stupid kids
We've got to get out of here, like outside this atmosphere
Just don't reach down for your waistband or they'll shoot to kill

He was never on time, I heard he chain-smoked cigarettes
I heard he grew up in the projects, at least that's what the paper said
Now Freddie's doing hard time, the hardest time a young man could get
His body's shining in the light as a martyr for the national press
He was such a great guy, yeah that's what the neighbors said
But I've been having a hard time finding out where they printed that
That's life and press, lies and death
Now Freddy is on the run and we know he's not coming back
