hidden
Far from the evergreen of old Assam
Far from the rainfall on the trails of Old Saigon
Straight from the poster town of scorn and ritz,

we bring you the wilder side of gold and glitz
Run neon tiger, there's a lot on your mind
They'll promise just to pet you, but don't you let them
get you away, away, oh, one ... under the heat of the
southwest sun

You took to the spotlight like a diamond ring
They came from the woodwork in the hopes they might
redeem themselves for poor decisions to win big
Run neon tiger, there's a lot on your mind
They'll strategize and name you,
but don't you let them tame you
You're far too pure and bold to suffer the strain of the
hangman's hold

I don't want to be kept, I don't want to be caged,
I don't want to be damned, oh hell
I don't want to be broke, I don't want to be saved,
I don't want to be SOL
Give me rolling hills, tonight could be the night that
I stand among the thousand thrills
Mister, cut me slack, I don't want to go back,
I want a new day and age
Come on girls and boys, everyone make some noise!

Run neon tiger, there's a price on your head
They'll hunt you down and gut you
I'll never let them touch you
Away, away, oh one
I'm begging you, neon tiger, run
Under the heat of the southwest sun
Run neon tiger, there's a lot on your mind
