Panic & Run

Album: Murdered Love (2012)

Songfacts®:

  • Lyrically, the song nods to the old folk tale of Chicken Little, who believes the sky is falling and the world is coming to an end when an acorn falls on its head. Frontman Sonny Sandoval explained to Artist Direct: "It's that whole question of, 'What if the world is coming to an end?' We're not living in the days of relaxing. We should be conscious of what's going on in the world we live in."
  • Aerosmith's 1993 single "Livin' On The Edge" single also references the Chicken Little fable in its lyrics. ("If Chicken Little tells you that the sky is fallin'. Even if it wasn't would you still come crawling.")
