Michael Malarkey Lost And Sound

Something about the way you look tonight

That makes me see you

Like when I saw you for the first time

Baby, your necessity to grow

Is lookin’ to me now

But we’re already on that road

We cannot be changed

We’re the lost and sound

So come change with me

Don’t let it get you down

Don’t let it get you down

Something about the way you look tonight

That illuminates you

Like when I saw you in that first light

Eyes locked like a drunk from across the room

The rhythm swell, it won’t let you down now

When the season change too soon

Hey don’t be scared babe

That we’re lost and sound

Everything is free

Don’t let it get you down

Oh no, no we cannot be changed

We’re the lost and sound

So come change with me

Don’t let it get you down

Don’t ever let it get you down

Michael Malarkey Love Will Kill Us All Someday

I’m the devil in your dream, the bull in your ring

The thorn in your throat from a dozen I left you

Love will kill us all someday

The cause of your cruelty, the crack in your spine

You’re changing your walk and I hate that I’ve hurt you

Love will kill us all someday

But I won’t let you drown as we suffer the storm

So call me what you will, I’ll still be there in the morning

At the changing of the ghosts

The changing of the ghosts

I’m the crutch that you’re kissing, the crease in your brow

The canvas is crowded, we can’t paint a thing now

Love will kill us all someday

I’m the monster inside your head

The reason you can’t come to bed

It’s fight or fuck now

Love will kill us all someday

But I won’t let you drown as we suffer the storm

So call me what you will, I’ll still be there in the morning

I won’t let you drown as we suffer the storm

So call me what you will, I’ll still be there in the morning

At the changing of the ghosts

At the changing of the ghosts

Michael Malarkey Everything’s Burned

Burned

Easily crushed up, kind of callow

Shoot the shutterbugs in Time’s Square

Peanut brittle in Candy Land

Archetypal brunette with hawks eye’s

A lion’s man and pale horse heart

Bit in mouth and ring in nose

Led by red, mistrusted instead

Led by red, mistrusted instead

Burned

Crumpled and burned

When the rain crashes like a wildebeest herd

We follow will ‘o the wisp’s through the rats and hogs

We span the velocity on bald eagle’s wings

Colour-blind schemes, motifs and themes

Faint scent of plaster, cracked alabaster

Colour-blind schemes, motifs and themes

Faint scent of plaster, cracked alabaster

Turn your back on the stigmas

Let them walk their own stilts

Knock them out from under the walkers

But don’t spoil the family circus fun

There is a safety net

We’ll fall fine

There is a safety net

We’ll fall fine

Burned

And burning still, shredded and holy

Still, calm and withdrawn

Pulling in to push out

Whip and crack to taste from the purple panther

Dizzy as Plumb Street

The saxophone player on Fifth Avenue he got a band now

Running wild through The Pound from the bloodhounds

Running wild through The Pound from the bloodhounds

Running wild through The Pound from the bloodhounds

Running wild through The Pound from the bloodhounds

Burned

But it’s not my turn to challenge the fire queen

Aerial map of the skin

The delicate sounds of downtown

Even the asphalt and silicone have voices, gothic panes

Lined skin, serenades

Crystal ball eyes, cold lights, warm colours

If you bounce to the rhythm, you will never get numb

If you bounce to the rhythm, you will never get numb

If you bounce to the rhythm, you will never get numb

If you bounce to the rhythm, you will never get numb

Turn your back on the stigmas

Let them walk their own stilts

Knock them out from under the walkers

But don’t spoil the family circus fun

There is a safety net

We’ll fall fine

There is a safety net

We’ll fall fine

Turn your back on the stigmas

Let them walk their own stilts

Knock them out from under the walkers

But don’t spoil the family circus fun

There is a safety net

We’ll fall fine

There is a safety net

We’ll fall fine

Michael Malarkey Feed The Flames

In the dark part of the woods

Up to nothing good

Hide your secret smile better

But the only way to breathe

A humour that you need

Don’t do each other in deeper

Just before you both begin

Feed the flames

Dance on the edge

With obliviousness

She’s sharp as knives

On the edge of the world

Under the microscope

You’re my blood

And I know your ways

I see you sway like the trees

Changing your allegiance

You’re my blood

And we’re one and the same

I watch your light shine within

Glowing like a beacon

Feed the flames

Escape the city scape

You’re better off without it

And the night it turns to you

With your red, white, black and blue

And your eyes that tend to run, honey

You said this would be fun

You said this would be fun

Dance on the edge

With obliviousness

She’s sharp as knives

On the edge of the world

Under the microscope

[x2]

You’re my blood

And I know your ways

I see you sway like the trees

Changing your allegiance

You’re my blood

And we’re one and the same

I watch your light shine within

Glowing like a beacon

Glowing like a beacon

Glowing like a beacon

Feed the flames

Feed the flames

Michael Malarkey Through The Night And Back Again

Mornings like this I feel like leaving

Though I’ll have to hollow out my heart

I’m scraping out the insides of a pumpkin

Paint a twisted face and carve it out

Paint a twisted face and carve it out

Dress it up like someone else’s nightmare

Candle flickering alive inside

And now I’ll keep it scowlin’ on the doorstep of my love

So others are afraid to go inside

So others are afraid to go inside

I’ve tried hard, oh darlin’

To keep the balance too

But it’s not me, it’s you

Who’s kicking us back and forth like this

Cold nights like this I feel like stayin’

In the darkness and the comfort of my cave

There’s somethin’ there for every little daydream

A spark that flickers up and turns to flame

A spark that flickers up and turns to flame

If you wanna fight me there then fight me

We can walk ten paces then turn

But if you want me dead you’ll just have to shoot me through

Cause I would rather die than see you in pain

I would rather die than see you in pain

I’ve tried hard, oh darlin’

To keep the balance too

But it’s not me, it’s you

Who’s kicking us back and forth like this

Tripping up back and forth like this

Slipping up back and forth like this

Kicking us back and forth like this

With the pills

And the falls

And the thrills

Of seeing it all

Through the night

I’m back again

The pills

And the falls

And the kills

Of seeing it all

Through the night

I’m back again

Through the night

I’m back again

Mornings like this I feel like leaving

Though I’ll have to pick apart my brain

Like a flock of crows upon a scarecrow

If he could raise his arms they’d fly away

If he could raise his voice they’d fly away

I’ve tried hard, oh darlin’

To keep the balance too

But it’s not me, it’s you

Who’s kicking us back and forth like this

I’ve tried hard, oh darlin’

To keep the balance too

But it’s not me, it’s you

Who’s kicking us back and forth like this

Tripping up back and forth like this

Slipping up back and forth like this

Kicking us back and forth like this

With the pills

And the falls

And the thrills

Of seeing it all

Through the night

I’m back again

The pills

And the falls

And the kills

Of seeing it all

Through the night

I’m back again

Through the night

I’m back again

Michael Malarkey The Greatest Trick I Know

Frightened of what is to come in the saint of your history

Our lives are like dominoes, you fall and I will go down with you

And the greatest trick I know is how to disappear completely

Paint the window, board up the door

Less like a house, more like a mall

But watch him

I will be there, when you’re lost and found

Safe with the others, the orphans and clowns

I will be there when you’re lost and found

Waiting for someone to take me home

Pacing cause I can’t sit still, my mind keeps on racing

Like I’ve got somewhere to go, but I’ve nowhere to be anymore

And the trust that you gave to me, it cracked like a diamond in rusty ocean

Flooded the city and drowned all the men

I thought I could swim but there’s no land to swim to

I will be there, when you’re lost and found

Safe with the others, the orphans and clowns

I will be there when you’re lost and found

Waiting for someone to take me home

We are all free, as we wanna be

Heavy hands and once we get lost in the sound

We are all free, as we wanna be

Heavy hands and once we get lost in the sound

We are all free, as we wanna be

Heavy hands and once we get lost in the sound

Lost in the sound, lost in the sound, lost in the sound

I will be there when you’re lost and found

Safe with the others, the orphans and clowns

I will be there when you’re lost and found

Waiting for someone to take me home

I will be there when you’re lost and found

Safe with the others, the orphans and clowns

I will be there when you’re lost and found

Waiting for someone to take me home

Michael Malarkey Captain Solitaire

Am too calm, got burned out racing

Now the motionless boots on the ceiling now

You watch it all from upside down

Now begging I’ll steal it, captain Solitaire

You stay it’s believing, birds’ nests in your hair

The only heart you’re healing, healing, healing is your own

The only heart you’re healing, healing, healing is your own

Hang in there, blood keeps rushing

To your head, and your eyes are kaleidoscopes

You watch it all with sunset eyes

But you’re getting delirious, captain Solitaire

Because you’re the dealer dealing aces to yourself

Because you’re the dealer dealing aces to yourself

And you say hit me again

Hit me again, hit me again

And you say hit me again

The only heart you’re healing, healing, healing is your own

The only heart you’re healing, healing, healing is your own

And you say hit me again

(You better hit me again, you better)

Hit me again

(You better hit me again)

Hit me again

(You better hit me again, you better)

And you say hit me again

(You better hit me again)

Hit me again

(You better hit me again, you better)

Hit me again

(You better hit me again)

Hit me again

(You better hit me again, you better)

And you say hit me again

(You better hit me again)
