No Time To Run was written in 1985 by J. Randall Murphy who performed it live during the late '80s and and mid '90s. It is reminiscent of the thought provoking songs on '70s & '80s soft-rock albums, which makes it suitable for a wide range of mixes.

It is part of Renewable 1 - Version 4.3, which is available as a limited special Artist Issue EP on CD. To order yours, send me an email. My address is below. For HD downloads, the most recently engineered versions are always available here before any other vendor. So if you like this song, please get it here. This song can also be sent as a gift using the link above.


At the time I began recording Renewable 1, President Trump was pulling out of the nuclear non-proliferation treaty with Russia and Los Alamos was gearing-up for renewed nuclear weapons production. Also, a Russian missile testing facility blew-up causing several radioactivity monitoring stations to go offline, and The Doomsday Clock was closer to midnight than it had been since the Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962. Yes folks, this was all happening in August 2019. Now in 2022, we're hearing rumblings from Russia about them using nukes in their war on the Ukraine. This is serious stuff with a serious song to match.


No Time To Run

When they come - no time to run
No time to run - when they come
When they come - nothing to fight for
Only to die for - and no time to run

You will hear the sirens scream
You may think that it's just a dream
First comes the fire and then comes the rain
There will be no time to feel the pain
There will be no time for you to explain
Just how this world got so damned insane

See the reflection in your child's eye
What's that coming down from the sky
Nothing my little one just hold on tight
It means it's time to say goodnight
