    'Runner' is the first song we wrote for our new record. It began as a guitar riff Patrick recorded while we were living off-grid, anchored in a fisherman's cove called San Juanico. The only instruments we had on board were an acoustic guitar and a drum sequencer, but the limitations seemed to work in our favor. Until that point, we had no clear vision for our writing.

    The demo we recorded that day outlined the sound of our future, the first contours of our fifth full-lengthed album, called 'Swimmer,' out February 14.

    Lyrics:
    Runner, I know you’re living with a wild hunger Let me make the most of us
    You know you’ll never be a runner
    And leave me in a cloud of dust

    Living in the same old sin
    I feel it blowing in the wind
    Like manna in the desert, oh
    Gonna take a miracle

    Every little bead of sweat
    Feel it running down my neck
    When you look at me like that
    Feeling like we can’t go back
    If I become a pillar of salt
    I’ll know that it was all my fault
    Every little bead of sweat
    Every little bead of sweat

    Runner, you’re just a bottomless pit of hunger
    Lead me to the promised land
    Your manna is only a famine
    Wandering the desert oh
    Gonna take a miracle

    Every little bead of sweat
    Feel it running down my neck
    When you look at me like that
    Feeling like we can’t go back
    If I become a pillar of salt
    I’ll know that it was all my fault
    Every little bead of sweat
    Every little bead of sweat

    Let me make the most of us
    You know you’ll never be a runner
    And leave me in a cloud of dust
    Leveled in a burning heat
    Red Sea devouring me
    Flowing over my stoned-soul
    Gonna take a miracle

    Every little bead of sweat
    Feel it running down my neck
    When you look at me like that
    Feeling like we can’t go back
    If I become a pillar of salt
    I’ll know that it was all my fault
    Every little bead of sweat
    Every little bead of sweat Show less
