"Run Romeo Run" as written by and Bradfield....
I can see all the things that used to be there
So much I wish I was suspended in a different time
The radio waves are creeping along the corrirdor
At 33 a minute we'd better stay inside

Run run Romeo run
Leave the demons behind
Run run Romeo run
Leave the devils behind
Run run Romeo run
This is your last stand
Run run Romeo run
Leave the demons behind

The blue I wear is not so beautiful anymore
There's always something in my mind that I should have done
The radio waves are creeping along the corridor
At 33 a minute we'd better stay inside

Run run Romeo run
Leave the demons behind
Run run Romeo run
Leave the devils behind
Run run Romeo run
This is your last stand
Run run Romeo run
Leave the demons behind

Run run Romeo run
Leave the demons behind
Run run Romeo run
Leave the devils behind
Run run Romeo run
This is your last stand
Run run Romeo run
Leave the demons behind

    Song MeaningThe song is about Canadian Lt. Gen. Romeo Dallaire and his experiences leading the failed UNAMIR mission in Rwanda during the 1994 genocide.

    The song speaks of the Hutu hate radio ("The radio waves are creeping along the corrirdor"), him as a peacekeeper ("The blue I wear is not so beautiful anymore"),the guilt he feels over not being able to stop the genocide ("There's always something in my mind that I should have done"), and the demons he fought with/believed he saw (he's on record saying that he believed that some of the perpetrators were possessed);"Leave the demons behind".
