"Band on the Run" is the title song from Paul McCartney and Wings' acclaimed Band on the Run album.
It is composed of a three-part structure that revolves around the themes of escape and liberation. The song tells a story about a band being confined to prison and then escaping and going on the run.
The first part (0:00-1:18) is soft and melodic. The singer complains about being stuck in one room forever alone,…
Stuck inside these four walls, sent inside forever,
Never seeing no one nice again like you,
Mama you, mama you.
If I ever get out of here,
