"Run! Christian, Run!" as written by Huw Bunford, Cian Ciaran, Dafydd Ieuan, Guto Pryce and Gruff Rhys....
Rapture
Waiting to capture that moment
Postponement
Suspension of rational movement

And bang on the hour of twelve
To a forest clearing we'll delve
With guns to our heads
For we know
That Heaven awaits us

Dreaming of that perfect home by the Sun
Run! Christian, Run!

Roaming
Roaming from all tribulation

Leaving
Leaving behind all damnation

With women and children in line
The men will then gather behind
With knives to their throats
They'll depart on the midnight train to Jordan.

Still dreaming of that perfect home by the Sun
Run! Christian, Run!

Still wishing for that perfect home by the Sun

    "Cian had demo'd a repetitive theme with this loop that became the intro and outro, and I added a country rock verse, by which time Bunf had learnt the pedal steel. Bunf found the title and I started singing it on top of Cian's demo. Again we fancied ourselves as a vocal band.

    "We approached one of the more interesting websites to do the film. The Ministry Of Truth are a couple called Armand Geddyn and his wife 'Malibu' Barbie Geddyn. It's quite a critical website, critical of organised religion. It's a heavy song, and you need Arma' Geddyn for a heavy song! It's followed by..."

    General CommentIt's beautiful. I like the way that that same little sample Cian made plays throughout the whole song (though it gets distorted later on).

    General CommentI totally hear "by your son" or variants thereof either replacing "by the sun" or sung with it.
