Gallant Manhattan

Brainwaves living in stills

Nightmares just floating on film

You found it in the white lies in the back of your mind

And you know it’s not the same reel that you dusted off before

So slide it in a tape deck

Put it in a VCR

Show me how you got in this predicament

Did the devil let you down?

I could tell you it’s the apex

I could tell you it’s the Al hamra

Take another shot of your adrenaline

And pray you get that far

Sharp turns covered in skin

I bet the black gates just letting you in

You want another sure thing, a super 8 dream

But you know this ain’t a classic or one you’ve ever seen before

So slide it in a tape deck

Put it in a VCR

Show me how you got in this predicament

Did the devil let you down?

I could tell you it’s the apex

I could tell you it’s the Al hamra

Take another shot of your adrenaline

And pray you get that far

(It came on paddle boats

Upon arrival we tried so hard to flee

It followed)

Gallant Talking To Myself

I’ve been talking to myself lately

I’m asking for advice, oh

I’ve been slowly loosening my grip on this reality

Tongue-tied, the dominoes break

So won’t you lend me your faith?

I’ve been talking to myself lately, ooh

I’ve been talking to myself, ooh

Earthbound, and scatter-brained

Can I thrive on pocket change?

I’ve been talking to myself lately, ooh

I’ve been whispering to ghosts lately

I’m begging for more time

Before I’m buried deeper in the trenches of insanity

Feed me a piece of my mind

I’ve been talking to myself lately, ooh

I’ve been talking to myself, ooh

Earthbound and scatter-brained

Can I thrive on pocket change?

I’ve been talking to myself lately, ooh

How’d my own molecules forsake me?

Atoms chained behind my back

I should be bold, I should be bold in my logic and reasoning

But I just calculate my intentions

I hope that won’t follow me to my old age

I’m a moss-covered stone on a foothill

And I’m tumbling, tumbling

I’ve been talking to myself lately, ooh

I’ve been talking to myself, ooh

Earthbound and scatter-brained

Can I thrive on pocket change?

I’ve been talking to myself lately, ooh

Gallant Oh, Universe

I was a pauper

Fickle and bruised

Wishing I could atomize these lonely lunar views

But with thorns in my ankles

And rocks in my shoes

I weather through

Gallant Bourbon

I’m a headless horseman on quilted sand dunes

With my neck wide open, I pray for refuge

Cause since I’ve been found I’ve been living a life in cages

Withering down to the champagne quicksand

Wrestling doubt I’ve been dragging around for ages

I tried to let it drain but my veins are hopeless

Cause I loved in cold blood and got used to it

Angels say trust the detox

But I’m shaking I need it like bourbon in my coffee cup

I’m a tritone bible with misprint logic;

I count lunar cycles with faithless prophets

Cause since I’ve been found I’ve been living a life in cages

Withering down to the champagne quicksand

Wrestling doubt I’ve been dragging around for ages

I tried to let it drain but my veins are hopeless

Cause I loved in cold blood and got used to it

Angels say trust the detox

But I’m shaking I need it like bourbon in my coffee cup

I’m a mountainless valley

Never comforted crashing

I’m just another stone on broken walls

Racing the winds in a hurricane

I’m not as brave as I once was

I’ve been kicking these rocks in a river

And they’ve been sinking low, low, low, low, low

Low, low, low, low, low

Oh they’ve been going low, low, low, low, low

Low, low, low, low, low

I mean, I lied, how long?

Cause they’ve been sinking low, low, low, low, low

Low, low, low, low, low

Won’t keep a promise I can’t make

Cause I’ve been going low, low, low, low, low

Low, low, low, low, low

Cause I loved in cold blood and got used to it

Angels say trust the detox

But I’m shaking I need it like bourbon in my coffee cup

Low, low, low, low, low

Low, low, low, low, low

Low, low, low, low, low

Low, low, low, low, low

We’ve been going low, low, low, low, low

Low, low, low, low, low

Going low, low, low, low, low

Low, low, low, low, low

Gallant Percogesic

She wants nitro

When she herself’s a box of TNT

All the baptized and underacknowledged

She lights her flame over nothing, oh

She needs every single pleasure

As the percogesic was tapering off

And the fumes surrounded, I know I bit off

More than I can chew

A lot of low sight in my lungs

I never thought I’d be so disarmed

Bit more than I can chew

Raised on full bites

She stumbles through her parents’ living room

As the velvet curtains lay

I drew my blood over my front door

And I hope she passes over, over

As the percogesic was tapering off

And the fumes surrounded, I know I bit off

More than I can chew

A lot of low sight in my lungs

I never thought I’d be so disarmed

Bit more than I can chew

One thing I can’t change

And I hope she passes over, over

As the percogesic was tapering off

And the fumes surrounded, I know I bit off

More than I can chew

A lot of low sight in my lungs

I never thought I’d be so disarmed

Bit more than I can chew

Gallant In The Room: Cruisin’

Ooh, yeah baby

Ooh, yeah

Ooh, ooh

Baby let’s cruise, away from here

Hey, don’t be confused, the way is clear

And if you want it you got it, you’ll be fine

This is not a one night stand, baby

Just let the music take your mind (hey)

Just release and you will find

You’re gonna fly away

Glad your goin’ my way

I love it when we’re cruisin’ together

The music is played for love

Cruisin’ is made for love

I love it when we’re cruising together

No, no, no, no

Oh, yeah

Ooh-oh

Na-na-na-na

So good

Baby tonight belonged to us, (ooh, no, no)

Everything’s right, do what you must, my lover

And inch by inch we get closer and closer

To every little part of each other

You’re gonna fly away, (fly away)

Glad your goin’ my way, (my way)

I love it when we’re cruisin’ together

The music is played for love (it is played)

Cruisin’ is made for love

I love it when we’re cruisin’ together

You’re gonna fly away

Glad you gone my way

I love it when we’re cruisin’ together

The music is played for love

Cruisin’ is made for love

I love it when we’re cruisin’ together

Gallant Miyazaki

Suicide

All the heartbreak hit like suicide, hey

You was right

You was right to point the finger

At my guilty eyes, hey

But tell me if you want me to

Put my pride in check so I can make it up to you, babe

If you want

I can make your body tremble

If you want to

If you want

I can make a magic potion

If you want to revive

No one has to know (ooh)

No one has to know (ooh)

No no no no, no

Gallant Blue Bucket Of Gold

My blue bucket of gold

Friend, why don’t you love me?

Once the myth has been told

The lens deforms it as lightning

Raise your right hand

Tell me you want me in your life

Raise your red flag

Just when I want you in my life

Search for things to extol

Friend, the fables delight me

My blue bucket of gold

Lord, touch me with lightning

Raise your right hand

Tell me you want me in your life

Raise your red flag

Just when I want you in my life

Gallant Gentleman

You know it’s winter somewhere

But it’s spring time right here

You need me to water the grass before it all disappears

You said you sick of that high school shit

You need a college degree

When you’re touching and kissing my neck

Girl, you know what you want

And I’m here to give into
