Frontman Matt Agrella mentions on the PacSun blog:
"Runnin' Ain't Freedom (You Should Know That)" is a song about ridding the distractions in life that keep you away from your goal. Probably my favorite track on the EP, it worked out perfectly when I rolled out of my sleeping bag, eyes crusty, and had a few texts from Keith about shooting the video. We had crashed at our good friend John Berna's house during Fest 10 (the sun coming up before bed each night). Filmed it right on the couch I crashed on."
