As a B-side to the wonderfully hypnotic "The Scientist" from A Rush of Blood to the Head, "I Ran Away" makes a lot of sense. It compliments the former in both lyrical content and somberness in every way, but while both songs' outlook can be interpreted as deftly bleak, "I Ran Away" comes out as significantly immediate. There's no question what "The Scientist" does in retrospect to the core of the album, but "I Ran Away" is a slice of Coldplay that need not to be taken amongst the others. Tangled in it's dreamy yet nightmarish landscape, Coldplay succeed in taking emotions higher and spinning rock a new record. Take a closer look.
