about

Welcome to the Bandits on the Run inaugural EP.

We Bandits have always depended on the kindness of strangers and friends alike. Indeed, the artifact you hold in your hands would not exist without it.
Thank you.

The following adventure was recorded in single takes and mixed live by our friends at Bodega Dream, in a quaint living room deep in the heart of Brooklyn.


The chapters of this adventure run as follows:

1. Cowboy on the Run
2. Sweet Thing
3. Potted Plant
4. Heart of Silence
5. Blue Moon


So sit back, relax, and let us take your heart hostage on this whirlwind of wild abandon. We’ll get you back safe and sound, honest.

Yours Truly,
<-------Bandits on the Run------<<<

about

Bandits on the Run New York, New York

Bandits on the Run are your friendly neighborhood criminals, whose sole purpose is to reinvigorate the element of surprise by making musical mischief in unexpected places.

To your ears, these whimsical criminals will sound like a nostalgic medley of old and new: strummed, plucked, and bowed away on cello and guitar, and propped up on an old timey spine of three part harmony.

Track Name: Cowboy on the Run
Rivers running through
Lovin it with you
Inspiration comes like the next day the next and the next and the next and the next,
Nowhere I couldn't go, no one I wouldn't know,
Freedom was feelin you.
Way up to the sky, you and I, so secure.
Beauty azure, crystal clear.
Till it was gone, and the sun that I soaked in just burned I was broken.

How many women have you done and left like you left me?
I loved you so, where did you go? What have you done?
Cowboy On The Run

There you ride with my identity and my pride.
I loved how I spent my days...

How many women have you done and left like you left me?
I loved you so, where did you go? What have you done?
Cowboy on the Run.....
Track Name: Sweet Thing
Sweet Thing! You're the only one I want to sing,
Sweet Thing! You're the only one I want to sing,
Sweet Pea! You're the only one I want to see,
Sweet Pea! You're the only one I want to see!

I've got a hole in my hand
(In my hand, in my hand)
I thought that you'd understand
(Understand, understand)
But maybe you don't...

Calling! I've been bringing half of what you bring!
Crawling, You're the one that keeps me calling!
Sweet Thing! You're the only one I want to sing,
Sweet Thing! You're the only one I want to sing!

I've got a hole in my hand
(In my hand, in my hand)
I thought that you'd understand
(Understand, understand)
But maybe you don't...

Oooh-oh-oh

Cool kid, Taunting with your grin and with your grit.
Cruel kid, Makin love by makin like to kiss.
Sweet Thing! You're the only one I want to sing,
Sweet Thing! You're the only one I want to sing!

I've got you under my skin
(Da-da-da, da-da-da-da-da)
I thought you'd want to come in,
But maybe you don't
But maybe, maybe you will,
Maybe you won't,
But maybe, maybe you do...

Track Name: Potted Plant
Do you live on a lonely island?
Do you live on a lonely hill?
Are you perched in a pot in the dry dry air
On a lonely window sill?

Have you finally found that you're an only child?
Do you stare at the ground where the flowers grow wild?
Or have you taken root, don't plan to move,
till the sunlight don't come round?

Daaaaaa da da da...

Do you think about the future?
Do you think about the past?
Does your time drag along like the pace of this song?
Do you dream of it draggin' fast?

Have you suddenly seen that you're a single seed?
Do you brothers and your sisters give you woe like weeds?
Or are you scared of the sun, don't plan to run,
Til the rain starts coming down?

Oh, down in the valley, in the soil of your soul is your family.
Don't dilly-dally, don't boil up a bowl, it's your family.
And when you think that you've thought about all that you got
Just remember that thinkin' that is thinkin' a thought,
And the voices in your head think your better off dead
But they're the only company you got, yeah, the only company you got!

Daaaaa da da da

Do you need somebody to want for?
Do you want somebody to need?
Or have you learned how to live out of lonesome love
Like a low-life I call me?

Perhaps you believe there is no need to grieve
You are all that you need to be alone and free
Are you runnin' fast
To the very last
Til the fool's gold has been found?
And the sunlight don't come round?
And the rain keeps comin'
DOWN!?
Track Name: Heart of Silence
Heart of silence, heart of gold of mine,
What is your reasoning for ticking away all this time?
Used to be thoughtful, used to bide my time,
What a different state of mind!

Leave me a moment, let me catch my breath,
Give me a chance to think upon this dance of death,
Your drum's been busy beating over-time,
Staggering home blind...

You've been aching and shaking and breaking alone for far too long a time,
You've been kept to yourself in your cage of bone,
Sequestering all of your love alone
So hold, to your line, like I'm holding to mine
Cause we're running your time to the end of this crime for this love, oh!

Heart of silence, heart of bated breath,
Puzzlement riddles me my way to death.
Now I wonder how I wandered oh so blind,
So straight was my mind.

Heart of silence, heart of gold of mine,
Won't you please stop this nonsense, ticking away all my time!
Used to be thoughtful, used to bide my time,
What a different state of mind...

You've been aching and shaking and breaking alone
For far too long a time,
You've been kept to yourself in your cage of bone,
Sequestering all of your love alone
So hold, to your line, like I'm holding to mine
Cause we're running your time to the end of this crime for this love, oh!
