Versions

Running

This is the original album version. Another track featuring much percussion layering, the busy beatloops back long, drawn-out vocal notes in the verses, with quicker whispers forming a pre-chorus that bounces from ear to ear and recalls a similar vocal approach in "Ruiner." The minimalist chorus retains the percussion layers but is differentiated by a smooth lead vocal and backing, harmonized "ooh" vocals. A bouncing guitar riff follows each chorus. The approach of rhythms and the subdued instrumentation and vocals atop recall the How To Destroy Angels track "The Believers."

Running (Cold Cave Remix)

Running Time: 4:20

Exclusive to the Remix 2014 EP from Beats Music.

Live

This song debuted live on the first night of the Tension 2013 Tour. It featured backing vocals by Lisa Fischer and Sharlotte Gibson.

Lyrics

   I followed you again this morning
   Just close enough to feel you near
   Pretending everyone could see me
   Just slip away and disappear
   
   They're right behind
   They're so inclined
   They're all aligned
   We're undermined
   As good as blind
   I'm out of time
   So hard to find
   So well-defined
   They're all aligned
   They're intertwined
   We're undermined
   They're so inclined
   We're right behind
   So hard to find
   As good as blind
   I'm out of time
   
   I'm running out of places I can hide from this
   I'm running out of places I can hide from this
   I'm running out of ways to keep on hiding this
   I'm running out of places I can hide from this
   
   I had a friend I think who knew me
   I couldn't seem to make him stay
   I know they're watching waiting for me
   I know I'll never get away
   
   I'm running out of places I can hide from this
   I'm running out of places I can hide from this
   I'm running out of ways to keep on hiding this
   I'm running out of places I can hide from this

In the final version, the chorus line:

 I'm running out of ways to keep on hiding this

was omitted for another:

 I'm running out of places I can hide from this
