The Bandit

Album: When You See Yourself (2021)
  • Chiseled their names in stone
    Heavy the load you tow
    And the red horse is always close
    And the fire don't burn below

    Two hundred miles to clear
    Chasing a sound I hear
    When the call brings them all to tears
    And the hopes they all turn to fears

    And they're walking around
    With their heads in the cloud screaming
    Must catch the bandit
    Reckless abandon
    Rundown and stranded
    Must catch the bandit

    Tracks in the dirt for days
    Sniff out the fire ablaze
    And the red door, it seems to sway
    And it carries a heavy weight

    And they're walking around
    With their heads in the cloud screaming
    Must catch the bandit
    Reckless abandon
    Rundown and stranded
    Must catch the bandit

    And they're walking around
    With their heads in the cloud screaming
    Must catch the bandit
    Reckless abandon
    Rundown and stranded
    Must catch the bandit Writer/s: Caleb Followill, Jared Followill, Matthew Followill, Nathan Followill
