RUN

Album: single release only (2019)

Songfacts®:

  • "RUN" finds Juice WRLD trying to run from his inner demons. Neither money nor women will help him fight off his dark side, so he resorts to drugs.

    I take a perc, then I take me a nap
    Take a sip of the syrup so I could go relax


    He escapes his pain for a time by being "as high as the heaven gates." Ultimately, the Chicago native acknowledges he cannot hide from his torment.

    Realize your dark side collides inside
    You run as fast as you can but you can't hide
  • The song's intro and outro samples Shiloh Dynasty's vocals on Masked Man's "Drowning My Sorrows." The same sample was also used on "Angel," an unreleased track by XXXTENTACION.
