Words and music by Bob Hartman

You must have seen the light somewhere along the way
The flashing warning sign that you would not obey
You ran the roadblock before the danger zone
You cut the lifeline - now you're on your own

(Chorus)
Run for cover - better get under authority
Run for cover - better listen to somebody
Like a lone ranger running through the night
With no one to tell you if you're wrong or right
Run for cover

You want to call the shots - you want to take control
You want to throw the dice and gamble with your soul
Taking the liberties that grace will not afford
Is He your Master, can you call Him Lord?

Why do you stand out in the rain
What do you think you have to gain
When you try in your own strength but don't prevail
The arm of flesh will always fail
