Run boy run! This world is not made for you
Run boy run! They're trying to catch you
Run boy run! Running is a victory
Run boy run! Beauty lays behind the hills

Run boy run! The sun will be guiding you
Run boy run! They're dying to stop you
Run boy run! This race is a prophecy
Run boy run! Break out from society

Tomorrow is another day
And you won't have to hide away
You'll be a man, boy!
But for now it's time to run, it's time to run!

Run boy run! This ride is a journey to
Run boy run! The secret inside of you
Run boy run! This race is a prophecy
Run boy run! And disappear in the trees

Tomorrow is another day
And you won't have to hide away
You'll be a man, boy!
But for now it's time to run, it's time to run!

Tomorrow is another day
And when the night fades away
You'll be a man, boy!
But for now it's time to run, it's time to run!

Really gets my syrupy old blood sloshing about. The video is pretty cool to.

Did the Blue Man Group perform the drums here?
At first listen, it's somewhere between distracting and annoying. Too much.
 

Reminds me of Irish Dancers, I don't mind it.

Pretty close, actually.
I'm PSDing, but only because my spin instructor plays this all the time. 
anyone with a at least some hearing and a shred of musical humility cannot help but like this. i pity the deaf
Anything plays on RP. I'm just a bit disappointed that Woodkid is not aired more....

Like Boat Song!
Wow, I'm really surprised to hear this at RP. My wife discovered it recently, and - though normally not my cup of tea - I seriously like it!
I love the PSD button!{#Stop}

{#Ask}   Hmmmmm.  Still not sure.
I'm already sick of this tune!  It's boring and predictable....did I mention tedious?! No thanks.
This sounds like a bad sound track to a bad B grade movie.
Guy on the cover looks like one of the Gorillaz with make-up by Slipknot.
significantly weaker than anything else from him so far.
Such a weird song. It sucks.

Nice though odd video.
Looks like the guys from "Where the Wild Things Are" decided to charge Metropolis.
Highly original. But it would take some getting used to. I don't know if I'm more intrigued or annoyed. It's very cinematic and impassioned. Go for it. Beats the hell out of Arcade Fire.

Go to the artist's website where he has this video and others. I recommend the video for "I Love You".

Very atmospheric and cool

Or Sandy Nelson and Sivert Hoyem's younger brother, but agreed on the "good"

 
One does not see Sandy Nelson brought up very often any more.  Interesting tune.

I like this more each time I hear it (but the album cover still freaks me out).

Weird, I like it.
I love it!  The driving beat makes me want to dance, especially the percussion which makes me want to shimmy!
Fresh new sound.  Luv it.
 
Great cinematic feel. Like it.
Not sure if I like it or not.  It's definitely different.
Deliciously weird.

Interesting... tempted to rate this a 10, but I am holding out for now...

one thing I don't like about this song is that it has been used as an ad for O2 in the UK...
i like the sound of this....what a wonderful world it is with great music liek this and a beautiful spring afternoon..reading 
The head on the cover is a bit disturbing and I'd run too if it was chasing me.  

For the art and how the song is growing on me with the swelling strings near the end and percussion I'll give it a 6 or 7. 
totally digging this. New original sound.
Finally playing this song on RP - yippy!
