Commentary

Following the release of Vessel, Spotify shared an exclusive commentary by Tyler Joseph for each track on the standard edition.

The Run and Go is a song I actually wrote in the studio when we were recording our album. There’s a lot of downtime when you record an album, whether that be waiting for someone to get drum tones, or you know, waiting for the producer to work on other tones and edit stuff. So, I was in another room on a piano a lot for the album—and actually going back to, you know, Migraine, I wrote a lot of Migraine on that piano—I wrote The Run and Go on this piano as well. So this was kind of a brand new idea brought to everybody from the recording process. And this song, The Run and Go, I always put myself somewhere mentally, you know, when I’m writing a song with ‘where do I wanna play this song?’ and I’ve always pictured myself playing a song like that on a festival style show where obviously there’s a ton of people. And I don’t know if you’ve picked up on it, but I have a pretty crazy imagination and my dreams are pretty big, but this is one of those songs where I picture myself playing in the middle of the day—‘cause we’re not that big yet, we’re not playing night time slots at festivals, but that’s okay, we can still be awesome during the day, you know. But The Run and Go is one of those songs that I hope to play during the day at a festival.

Lyrics

I can't take them on my own, my own
Pa, I'm not the one you know, you know
I have killed a man and all I know
Is I am on the run and go.

Don't wanna call you in the nighttime
Don't wanna give you all my pieces
Don't wanna hand you all my trouble
Don't wanna give you all my demons
You'll have to watch me struggle
From several rooms away
But tonight I'll need you to stay.

Do-do-do-do, do-do-do-do...

I am up against the wall, the wall
Pa, I hear them coming down the hall
I have killed a man and all I know
Is I am on the run and go.

Don't wanna call you in the nighttime
Don't wanna give you all my pieces
Don't wanna hand you all my trouble
Don't wanna give you all my demons
You'll have to watch me struggle
From several rooms away
But tonight I'll need you to stay.

Do-do-do-do, do-do-do-do...

Cold nights under siege from accusations
Cerebral thunder in one-way conversations
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh.

Don't wanna call you in the nighttime
Don't wanna give you all my pieces
Don't wanna hand you all my trouble
Don't wanna give you all my demons
You'll have to watch me struggle
From several rooms away
But tonight I'll need you to stay.

Tonight I'll need you to stay!
Tonight I'll need you to stay!
Tonight I'll need you to stay!
Tonight I'll need you to stay!
