"The band tells us that the song was inspired by accepting situations that are beyond your control. The band’s lead singer suffers from Lupus, and they recently lost a friend to the same disease (and the band has touchingly dedicated this track to her). Facing one’s mortality, especially through the loss of a friend, is both devastating and frightening.
However, TWOFEW has created something profoundly beautiful from the sadness.
On The Run starts with haunting, melancholy guitar picking and deep piano, slowly building into a solid, driving rhythm. The vocals are particularly strong at their entrance, both powerful and so clearly full of emotion, with a raw intensity that makes them a high point of this track. It’s a bit reminiscent of a Shinedown tune, with a slightly more modern edge."
