What song did I hear on the radio?

The other day I heard a pop-punk song on the local college radio station. The chorus sounded something like "Sad rendition for the one-eyed system" and then either "run away run away" or "get away get away." My vague details are making this impossible (for me) to google. Thank you, friends!

Which college radio station was it? If you remember what time, they usually have a playlist you can access, like this one at WFMU.

Oh man, that brings me back to my college radio days. Definitely One-Armed Scissor, which is a song I played on my own show many times.

Definitely "One-Armed Scissor", great song. Fun fact: ATDI's co-lead singer, Cedric, previously played in a band with presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke.

It's so rare that I get to say that unironically.
