Lyrics
:

You gonna rescue me tonight??

One-two-three-four

A renegade
Rides a run away train
To liberate
Tear these bonds assunder
A fugitive
Running from a chain gang
Comfort me
Grant me absolution

Running all my life
Running all my day
Running through the night
Seems like forever
Take me now
I'm so tired
Take me now
This time, forever

RESCUE ME
I'm on the run like a refugee
RESCUE ME
Come on
RESCUE ME

I'm destitute
I'm looking for protection
I want love
And physical asylum
A vagabond
Running from destruction
Cover me
While I seek defection

Running all my life
Running all my day
Running through the night
Seems like forever
Take me now
I'm so tired
Take me now
This time, forever

RESCUE ME
On the run like a refugee
RESCUE ME
I believe you can rescue me 

Running all my life
Running all my day
Running through the night
Seems like forever
Take me now
I'm so tired
Take me now
This time, forever

RESCUE ME
On the run like a refugee
RESCUE ME
I believe you can rescue me

"Do you think that I could become
one of you tonight with this song?
Can I come in there?

You know... With everything we've ever done, it's always been to try
and bring us as close as it's humanly possible with the people who come
and see The Alarm. Cause I've always believed, and they say it here in
America, that music should be by the people, for the people and of the 
people. And something...
When I turn on the radio in this... in 1988, I just don't feel anything
off the music anymore, cause it reminds me of something Woodie Guthrie
once said in 1945 : I hate a song that makes you feel like you're no good,
I hate a song that makes you feel like you're born to lose, makes you feel
like you're bound to lose.. Makes you feel lke you're no-body and you're
no good to nobody. You're too thin or you're too fat, you're too old or 
you're too young, you're too this or you're too that..
I'm out to fight those songs with every ounce of breath in my body. Because
I've always believed that the future of rock 'n roll is gonna come from
the people. And the people tonight are the FUTURE OF ROCK 'N ROLL!!"

RESCUE ME

RESCUE ME
On the run like a refugee
RESCUE ME
I believe you can rescue me

I believe you can rescue me

Let's hear the future of rock 'n roll singing now....

Give me the blues, 
Give me the blues
I said 

RESCUE ME
I believe you can rescue me
RESCUE ME
I believe you can rescue me
