Run Or Hide - Run River North



The Experience: Lying in the dark with your shadow shadow hanging over me... Run River North offers an unhealthy dose of despair. You can run or hide, but you cannot win...



Music Video: Run Or Hide adds visuals to the despair behind the lyrics and music. Black and white. Lizards crawling over a sun-bleached cow skull. Faces in pain that mock you. And a white teddy bear - a symbol for innocent childhood happiness - that blackens and burns. All the while, a young girl dressed in white - innocence again - is running from it all. But she's running into the dark. There's no light at the end of this tunnel. 

The Meaning of Run Or Hide: There's no meaning to your life - I don't understand these lines in my hand (fortune teller's lines) all look the same - and no way to make sense of the suffering. You have to choose between running or hiding. However, there's another option: fight. Run River North think that's impossible - they just give in to the lions - so I let them in - because they're afraid of the pain - breaking and tearing - that fighting will bring. But is the alternative any better? You can suffer on the run or you can turn and fight the demons that call out your name. Both hurt, but only one gives you back your dignity.


Ask yourself: Why can't you fight?

LYRICS:

Lying in the dark
With your shadow, shadow hanging over me
Shaking the ground, your footsteps footsteps calling out my name
Ooh Ooh Ooh Ooh

After the races
But all of these faces keep rolling by me now
I don't understand these lines in my hand all look the same all look the same

I think I changed my mind about a million times
Or to run or hide
Or to run or hide
I'm gonna call this out
I'm coming back somehow
I will run or hide
I will run or hide

Lions tearing apart
I see them breaking breaking
But I can't let them start
So I let them in
I feel them feel them tearing up my skin

I think I changed my mind about a million times
Or to run or hide
Or to run or hide
I'm gonna call this out
I'm coming back somehow
I will run or hide
I will run or hide

The lions touch you here
You only give what you get
You're tying to keep this in
Spit it out
Spit it out

The lions touch you here
You only give what you get
You're tying to keep this in
Spit it out
Spit it out

I think I changed my mind about a million times
To run or hide
To run or hide
I'm gonna call this out
I'm coming back somehow
I won't run or hide
I won't run or hide

I think I changed my mind about a million times
Or to run or hide
Or to run or hide
I'm gonna crawl this out
I'm coming back somehow
I will run or hide
I will run or hide

Run or hide
Run or hide
