The Runner

He didn't do it for the money
He ran it to run
Selfish
Heartless
He ran it to run

How much did he raise?
He didn't do it for the praise
Thought it was a race
He was out of place
Was he the only one?
Heartless
Selfish
He ran it to run

Running in someone's name
It's just not his game
But where's he coming from?
These antics aren't impressing anyone

He didn't do it for the face
He was on the pace
Didn't do it for fun
He ran, he ran, he ran it to run
Heartless
Selfish
He ran it to run

Running in no one's name
He's just playing his game
But what's he trying to prove
Not trying to prove himself to you

But he didn't do it for the face
He was on the pace
Didn't do it for fun
He ran, he ran, he ran it to run
Heartless
Selfish
He ran it to run

Think of the money
Just think of the money
Think of all the good you could do
Think of what it says about you

Think of the money
Just think of the money
Think of all the lives we can save
With all the money we've made

But he didn't do it for the face
He was on the pace
Didn't do it for fun
He ran, he ran, he ran it to run
Heartless
Selfish
He ran it to run

He ran it to run
