Bullets and Run

I wanted to make a thread for discussing this song, I think it’s my favorite previously unheard song from the Batson Sessions. I also wanted to point out the confusion of the title. Due to the misspelling on the leaked track list, fans will forever be calling this song Bullets and Rum. This song really hits home for me, it’s a different sound for DMB, but at the same time fits really well in Dave’s repitore. Some one (BTBaboon?) mentioned they hear a bit of Peter Gabriel in this song, and I have to agree. Anyways, share your thoughts on this newly found song. Do you like it? Do you hate it?

    Yeah, I get crazy early Peter Gabriel vibes (or his last bit of stuff with Genesis). Great tune!

    It reminds me of something off of Rusted Roots "Remember" album.

    Re: Bullets and Run

    The tracklist on the picture of the disc says "Run," but the line "It's like a party with bullets and run" makes no sense at all, so IMO it's most likely a typo in the tracklist that was fixed by whoever tagged the leaked track.

    Re: Bullets and Run

    could it be

    "It's like a party with bullets and rum

    Let's have a party with bullets and run" ?

    Sure it could be, but why would it be? Much more likely that it's a (very easy-to-make) typo.

    This is going to turn into another "with the asset of time" vs. "with the passage of time" isn't it?

    Great song. Just so happens I was listening to this when I saw the thread. I like the Peter Gabriel connect.

    Re: Bullets and Run

    Have you listened to the lyrics? It’s called Bullets and Rum. Run makes no sense in the lyrics of the song.

    I do really like this song. There is one digitally (idk if that's the right word) added clap noise that really bugs me though. It kicks in at 22 seconds on this link: https://youtu.be/dgJ4e_YP-Yk

    FWIW - “having a party with bullets and rum” is an unusually bad idea.

    I figured it was a song about war lords in Africa or something, seems to be the only logical answer.

    I really want to get these lyrics, got this song stuck in my head now. I can decipher some here and there but it's a challenge.

    Which is why you have to run halfway through said party.

    Re: Bullets and Run

    The first thing I thought of when I heard this song was that it sounded like a very similar chord progression to Cornbread. Almost like a slowed down version played with chords, not single notes. Do you guys hear that?

    Sure they do. They're not a 100% rhyme that traditionalist poets would approve of, but they're rhymes nonetheless.

    Same type of rhyme here in Dreaming Tree:
    "Below it he would sit for hours at a time
    Now progress takes away what forever took to find."

    Re: Bullets and Run

    Maybe it's both rum and run...

    Quote:
    "There are so many ways you have your fun
    Sometimes you bleed, sometimes you come undone
    It's like a party with bullets and rum
    Let's have a party with bullets and run"
    The first verse seems to support the run lyric:

    Quote:
    "Hooray
    Just can't get by with some
    Do things we must
    Just a fire
    To run when you're tired
    But somehow you keep going on"
    But the second verse has the liquor flowing:

    Quote:
    "You should go
    It's the dream with
    I'll be with you both in time
    Drink more in the morning
    Said remember when you were dry "

    It's like a super, super rich man's "That Girl is You"

    Also, the breakdown towards the end is amazing, but sounds very familar. Is that from something else?

    One of my least favorite songs on the Batson Sessions tbh. Sounds like something belongs Inn Stand Up.

    So, what are people calling it? I thought it was Run but then I saw the fan remaster here saying it's Rum after the initial leak.. hmm

    I'm pretty late to the Batson Sessions party. Just started kind of dicking around with it very recently.

    I basically agree with the singing altogether. It feels pretty bad.

    The music to it though beneath is unreal. Fantastic. Only spending time with it as someone is alluding to it being Revolution on the upcoming album. My thoughts would be musically keep 100% intact, and rework altogether the lyrics and singing.
