Run Home

Album: Hello Master (2006)

Songfacts®:

  • In this song, everything in the singer's life has gone and he needs to run home. The Factory Girl in the song represents the girl in the record company that treated the band unfairly.
  • Priestess recorded an instrumental version of this song for the hit movie Surf's Up.
  • The band is from Quebec, and the music video shows many of Canada's forests and dirt roads. >>
