Filewile clearly had an excellent time touring South Africa for the "Blueskywell" album release last winter. They felt well at home inside the dancehalls of Jo'burg, Cape Town, Dar El Salaam and Maputo.

As Filewile are not a band drawn to hanging out on the beach for long, but always eager to collaborate on yet another dubbed out venture, the follow up to the last single "Number One Kid" was bound to happen: A sun trenched Reggae tune full of soul and troubled lyrics in the finest conscious Reggae tradition. Uncertain if the trouble comes from a torn soul, torn country or both, "On the Run" tells of broken hearts and broken homes in troubled times.

Hailing from Mozambique, singer Pedro Da Silva Pinto (frontman to the band 340ml) masters a silken voice that mingles beautifully with Filewile's knee deep Reggae and Joy Frempong's floating backing vocals.

The b-side carries a classic Dub version of the same tune. Heavy steppin' up in this!

Track Name: On The Run feat. Pedro Da Silva Pinto
Verse 1:
I must admit my situations complex
I've got troubles in pursuit, crosshairs on my back,
I'm a moving target, a swindler on the run,
I'm a lone black sheep, I'm the outcast son,
I'm a king of burning bridges, a fallen throne,
just a broken heart from a broken home,
in a hopeless condition, in a fading sun,
and I'm desperately seeking asylum
So what you going to do, where you going to run, who you going to turn to (x4)
Verse 2
I'm a troubled victim, in troubled times,
I've been having trouble finding friends of mine.
Because I'm in too deep and there is no way out,
and the cold moves in as the flames burn out,
My hope is failing me, conscience calls,
I need to make amends before the night falls,
before doors shut down and the walls cave in,
and the lights turn out and the end begins.
