"Run Away" as written by James Todd Smith, Ashanti S. Douglas, Sharif Emil Slater, Jean Claude Olivier, Jaramye Jael Daniels, Akil King, James Brown and Lynne Collins....
Run away, run away
Run away and save your life
Run away, run away
Run away if you want to survive

Run away, run away
Run away and save your life
Run away, run away
Run away if you want to survive

Money, sex, in full control
A generation without soul
Perfect people in a perfect world
Behind closed doors all in control
Life, in a world of luxury
Cold cash money mentality
You gotta keep the faith
You gotta keep the faith
you better keep the faith and run away

Run away, run away
Run away and save your life
Run away, run away
Run away if you want to survive

It's time to break free,
Oh oh oh oh, run away, oh oh oh oh
You better break free,
Oh oh oh oh, run away, oh oh oh oh

Money, sex, in full control
Look, big brother is watching you
Unlock your brain and save your soul
No more limits, no more curfew
Life in the perfect system
Take a stand and fight for freedom
Keep the faith, you gotta keep the faith
You better keep the faith and run away

Run away, run away
Run away and save your life
Run away, run away
Run away if you want to survive

Run away, run away
Run away and save your life
Run away, run away
Run away if you want to survive

Run away, run away
Run away and save your life
Run away, run away
Run away if you want to survive

Run away, run away
Run away and save your life
Run away, run away
Run away if you want to survive

It's time to break free,
Oh oh oh oh, run away, oh oh oh oh
You better break free,
Oh oh oh oh, run away, oh oh oh oh

Keep the faith, you gotta keep the faith
You better keep the faith and run away

Keep the faith, you gotta keep the faith
You better keep the faith and run away

    My InterpretationThis song is amazing --

    I believe that this song refers to the conformity of the world, and that people with low self worth and self doubt feel the need to control others because of their own insecurities. Positions of power are way overused (politics,teachers,religion,cops,bosses,etc) and people who are "below" ranking, tend to go along with the flow because the system is set in a certain way of ruling -- however, all you have to do, to stay true to yourself and not take anyone's BS, is to stand up for yourself, no matter what --- having faith, means that even if a situation ends poorly, your faith and belief in something better -- will in fact happen . Runaway and save your life may translate in saying free your spirit, because without saving your spirit then you have no life --- inside you are dead .
