Run, Run, Run, Run, Run, Run, Run, Run,
Run, Run, Run, Run, Run, Run, Run, Run.
You better make your face up in
Your favourite disguise.
With your button down lips and your
Roller blind eyes.
With your empty smile
And your hungry...

    If this song has anything to do with WW1, especially in Europe, possibly Berlin where after WW1 the area slowly became to be called the ''Babylon of Europe'' where intellectual liberlism became very corrupt and perverted in the society excorcising their business that was beginning to affect the culture in a immortal way that needed to be cleansed according to the law by the Ring leader's wrath and his allies that had these ''undersirables'' on the run to pureify the area. This push might have gone to far even to a point when let's say just before WW2 broke out when a young German Jewish boy who was in love with a young Aryan German girl as one in love with each other, but when WW2 started unfourtently the boy developed a paranoid schizo personality disorder on the run as the hunted, afraid if caught by the girl's father who became a Nazi hunter in that if he caught him, especially in the back seat of the car with her, he would be send back in a cardboard box back to his mother. On the other parts of the World this song could also be about keeping us on the run to be caught in by the tenticles of the past that still survived in thinking that we may be a unrighteous individual[s] that needs to keep on the run by the memories that are unleashed from the ouside to control our insides in bringing the individual down to feel his own painful sin. In some of Pink Floyd songs like this one the protagonist is like a crow to chase us to his waiting to pick our brains while we are in our guilt, turning into fear paranoia trying to out run it, but slowly going a little crazy through the stages of it's hell to run away from .

    a man being chased by pink and his allies, not a chance. how about something much deeper like societies insecurities and twisted morals being enforced by over zealous "law enforcement". not just the actual line enforcement i.e. cops but the machine of politics using them to enable their agenda. this is a warning to run like hell before what you think is acceptable becomes non pc by the establishment. the wall references ww 2 and its atrocities but does so more directly. the disdain is addressed pretty directly and framed in the time that it actually took place. run like hell reflects directly societies feelings toward issues in time of its writing, the inter racial relationship in the back seat directly.

    This song is the story of a man whom is being chased by pink and his allies. The'll send you back to mother in a cardboard box. Is a reference to the death and concentration camps ran by the NAZIs during world war two
