Monsters

This is a thread about the penultimate song from the upcoming record Walk Around The Moon.

Monsters (partial): https://twitter.com/Ronwhileyoucan/s...877842945?s=20

[missing verse(s)]

I won’t let you down
Won’t you lean on me
While I’m around

No rope to hang the damned
No rum to save the drunk man
Just the monsters in your head
Nothing in the closet
Nothing underneath the bed
Just the monsters in your head

Killers’ eyes and
Painted faces
The devil wants your soul
But Jesus saves
Angry [??]
The devil wants your soul
But Jesus saves

Chutes and ladders
Pick up sticks
Counting cars
Counting bricks
Driving past an old five and dime
Can’t get nothing with a whole nickel [??]

I won’t let you down

Nothing in the closet
Nothing underneath the bed
Just the monsters in your head
No rope to hang the damned
No rum to save the drunk man
Just the monsters in your head

I won’t let you go
I won’t let you go

    I kind of hear the bridge from Up and Away during the “Jesus saves” part.

    I like what I hear.

    First few listens, it's solid. Really like the lyrics. Dave seems to enjoy it. Let's see whatelse he busts out in Mexico.

    I really like this one, especially the vocal delivery. Can't wait to hear the studio version.

    EDIT: Decent sounding full recording from the show : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AkbAcZCWdMM

    YES!!!!! This song is great. I am SO excited to see what it sounds like with the band, because holy moly does it sound good with Dave and Tim. This is exactly what I was hoping for and love how this album is shaping up. We’re in for a treat!

    The little bridge section is very similar to the same section of Up and Away. Both the chord progression and melody

    Full song if it hasn't been posted yet.

    EDIT: I see a post up above so disregard unless this is easier to find.

    I like the song. Excited to hear what the band does.

    Over in the album thread, someone said they were reminded of Too High, and I mentioned that the song would probably fit well on the Some Devil album...so I guess there's a bit of a consensus around where this song resides within the DM catalog.

    Honestly I'm starting to think I may like this album more. I like the idea of smaller songs full band, with the band just leaning into the shorter lengths. I think it could make the album interesting in a different way.

    And that is a good thing in my opinion! I'm interested to see what the rest of the band brings to the song.
