09. Bullet Soul

Hello Hurricane
by Switchfoot



 

I want to sing one for all the dreamers

I'm singing this one for the sparks

Here's one for the friction makers

We are the bleeding hearts

don't care whoever you are


we rise and fall together

our hearts still beat below

you can't stand by forever

you're a kid with a bullet soul

are you ready to go?



I want to turn up the radiation

I want to glow in the dark

love is the one true innovation

love is the only art

Don't let 'em blow it apart



we are the children of the scar

I want to start from the start





Behind the Song:
""Imagination decides everything." -Blaise Pascal

“Great things are not accomplished by those who yield to trends and fads and popular opinion.” -Jack Kerouac


Here's the second song that I worked on with Mike. We tracked a lot of it the day after we wrote "Your Love is a Song." I wanted to see what it would be like to work on a rock tune with him because I hadn't heard much of his work in that area. His passion and knowledge about fuzz tones were an incredible surprise to me. He brought out a song called “Bugman” as a reference (a blur song off of 13, a more obscure blur record that had some messier pinkerton overtones) and I knew we were on the right track. The demo I had done was much more subdued and with eclectic instrumentation (more of a cheap dust brothers concept). But he brought out a few Deviever guitar pedals and the song took turn towards the rock side of things.

We are the children of the scar. Our lives flash so quickly before us... This song was loosely based on a poem that I wrote a few years back. You only get one shot with your bullet soul, I want to make all that I can out of my one shot. Life is not perfect or ideal. Life is full of messy, bleeding dreamers. That's where things begin- Broken hearts making a broken record. But that's not the end of the story..." - Jon Foreman (Switchfoot)
