Biography

Run Run Run is as “indie” as it gets. Based in Los Angeles, Rx3 started in the tiny town of Joshua Tree, CA with a single microphone and just one song. After touring with the Queens of the Stone Age in 2001, singer Xander Smith was invited to make demos at their home studio, where inspiration struck. “If I was free to make any kind of music, what would it sound like?”, Smith asked himself. A seed was planted and has since grown into a rock quintet with one purpose—to make their own music, be self-supporting and stay independent. They write, record, book their tours, design merch, chase girls and win over rock icons/celebrities with just guitars, laptops and skinny jeans. Along the way, Rx3 has released 3 CDs, toured endlessly through US, Canada and Russia, been featured by tastemakers like KROQ, KCRW, MTV, MYSPACE and Reverb Nation and have toured with, worked with or been championed by The Strokes, The Walkmen, Johnny Marr/The Smiths, Adam Lambert, Love And Rockets, Paris Hilton, Phil Cunningham/New Order, Russian Icon Andrei Makarevich, Pyschedelic Furs, Tom Morello, My Chemical Romance, Pauley Perrette, NOH8, Daniel Lanois, Pink, Good Charlotte, The Zombies, Linda Perry and even legendary singer of Journey, Steve Perry. Run Run Run's “Have Rock, Will Travel” 2011 Tour is in support of their latest album “Pico”, featuring such songs as “On and On”, “Song and Dance”, and KCRW's “Top Tune of the Day”, the title track “Pico”.

PICO © 2010 RUN RUN RUN

Hey now, I’m hanging around, I’m feelin’ alright
Say now, just settle it down, you’re lookin’ too tight
Hey you, nothing to do, I’m gonna head East
Hey you, there’s nothing to lose, you’re gonna thank me

Take a slow ride, straight down Pico
Take a slow ride, straight down Pico
Take a slow ride, straight down

Hey you, what do ya do, to get your head right?
Leave the West side, takin’ a ride, don’t get the red lights
Stay low, I’m driving it slow, come up on Kingsley
Down on Pico, I get it to go, they always know me

Take a slow ride, straight down Pico
Take a slow ride, straight down Pico
It’s a slow drive, all the way down we go
Take a slow ride, straight down Pico

On and On

ON AND ON © 2009 RUN RUN RUN

Take a walk to the wishing well,
Take a look down to see yourself
Toss a penny ain’t gonna help
Come tonight I will never tell
Go get right, gotta shake the hell
Better hope we can break this spell on you

CHORUS:
Gimme tonight lady, Gimme tonight maybe
We go on and on and on and on again

Second chances and Sunday schools
Blowin’ smoke at the golden rules
Never learnin’ the first time through
I wanna know why I can’t be true,
And why I curse and I lie to you
Oh why oh why do we break but never bend

Gimme tonight lady, Gimme two times maybe
We go on and on and on and on again
Feeling something close to nothing, I don’t feel so right,
And I’m beggin’ at the bottom but I know its dry
We go on and on and on and on, On and on and on and on,
We go on and on and on and on again

BRIDGE: Luck be tonight for me
Feeling something close to nothing, I don’t feel so right,
And I’m beggin at the bottom but I know its dry
We go on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on

Gimme tonight lady if the first don’t save me
We go on and on and on and on again
Feeling something close to nothing, I don’t feel so right
And I’m beggin at the bottom but I know its dry
We go on and on and on and on,
On and on and on and on,
We go on and on and on and on again

Song and Dance

SONG AND DANCE © 2003 RUN RUN RUN

VERSE 1:
Run, run, run inside
All bad children try to hide
Come now, see the sight
Find me sitting by their side

CHORUS:
See, see my two right feet, always lose the beat,
All the shame, I never stand a chance
See me staring down, like a sad, sad clown,
All the shame, it’s just the same old song and dance
It’s still the same old song and dance

VERSE 2:
Turn, turn, turn to me
Tell me everything you see

CHORUS:
See, see your two right feet, walking out on me,
All the shame, I never stand a chance
See me staring down, like a sad, sad clown,
All the shame, it’s just the same old song and dance
It’s just the same old song and dance
It’s feels the same, it’s still the same
uh oh…

BRIDGE:
Nothing left to say, when there’s nothing left to save,

Turn around just run away,
Turn around just run away,
Turn around just run away,
Run away, just run away
Run, run, run, run, run run run run
Run, run, run, run, run run run run
Run, run, run, run, run run run run
Run, run, run, run, run run run run
Ah ah ah…

Good Company

GOOD COMPANY © 2007 Run Run Run

Look what good company she makes,
She's sitting pretty
Look how my new love never breaks-
She’s built like Culver City
See how your company went bad, you left me raving,
But now my new love's never mad, you know she's got me craving,

Touch, yeah touch, just touch me where I am

CHORUS:
Look what good company has done for me, has done for me yeah
Look what your company has done to me, has done to me now

Look how my new love never cries, she’s so collected
See how my new love never lies, ya know we’re so connected
Plastic, fantastic, she’s standing 6 foot tall
So classic, elastic we're bouncing off the wa-lls

CHORUS:
Look what good company has done for me, has done for me yeah
Look what your company has done to me, has done to me now
Took all this misery to build you into something better
Look what good company has do-ne for me,

(solo)
LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA

See what bad company you make, yeah you can keep your

Touch, yeah touch, just touch me where I am

CHORUS:
Look what good company has done for me, has done for me yeah
Look what your company has done to me, has done to me now
LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA
Look what good company has done

Ten Thousand ©2009 RUN RUN RUN

I’m throwin’ it all away, I turn it on everyone
I’m goin’ out on a plane that’s headin’ up for the Sun

Watching the world sink fast below me
It takes one long wave goodbye
Watching the world at ten thousand feet,
I see Love just pass me by

Love Love Love Love Love, I don’t believe in love
Love Love Love Love Love, l won’t believe in love

Sippin’ on Jack and Gin, I’m losing at love again, the slight of hand
Countin’ the empty bottles I leave, God I hope we never land

Love Love Love Love Love, I can’t believe in
Love Love Love Love Love l don’t believe in
Love Love Love Love Love, I won’t believe in love

Love Love Love
Love Love Love

All that you think you left behind, it’s suffocatin’
All that you think you should have tried, it’s complicated
All that you know has got behind you, it’s underneath your love

Love Love Love
Love Love Love

Ten thousand feet up in the sky
Twenty thousand feet ‘til I get high
Ten thousand feet below, twenty thousand feet below
Ten million feet ‘til I get high
