lyrics

I got a fence to lean against over the cliffs
I see a kid climbing over the stones
Big man in uniform come around
Say, “Get down!”
Kid says, “No sign says no.”
I got a line I’m standing behind
Everyday as the train rolls into the dock
And voice on the air, it says, “Beware,
All legs and arms inside the ride until a complete stop.”

They say, “Don’t go where you ain’t been,
Diggin’ a hole and gonna fall right in,
You never know who you’re gonna meet.
Better stay in and get a good night’s sleep.”
They say, “Don’t get caught down on that side of the tracks.”
Gimme danger, disbeware of this and that

I got a gate stuck in the way
Over the wires and through the imaginary property signs
It’s getting night, dinnertime
“You could have died,” it’s gonna be
But I feel so alive
The travel guide says stay in at night
Avoid the red lights, North East South and West sides
And no taxi fare will take you there
But that’s what I do
I trip and fall and no, I ain’t gonna sue

Can’t you take me somewhere we don’t own?
Into the woods and leave me all alone?
No crumbs, no pebbles or paint on trees
Just fires and bottles on the beach
As I see rich kids wrapped up, happy to be tracked
Gimme danger, disbeware of this and that

And I’m hangin’ by a single thread
And they say it’s troubled water
Stop only to catch your breath
Why else would you even bother?
Slap a sticker on and call it safe
New world anything but brave
I know the car alarm by heart
But what’s behind your down-crime-rate?
And would it be the same if help wasn’t just a 9-1-1 away?

You got a gun beside your bed
You ain’t afraid to shoot to kill in the name of defense
If they decide to hit again
You got a can rack stashed and a mask for the gas attack
And there you’ll hide, last one alive
As the jokers all choke and the clowns all cry
You plan in your mind behind the line,
Fence and the guide, the gate, the wire
Stuck on your side of the sign

They say, “Don’t go where you ain’t been,
Diggin’ a hole and gonna fall right in,
You never know who you’re gonna meet.
Better stay in and get a good night’s sleep.”
They say, “Don’t get caught down on that side of the tracks.”
Gimme danger, disbeware of this and that

about

Mischief Brew Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Emerging from the undead ashes of PA punk troupe The Orphans, Mischief Brew started with a scratchy demo tape in 2000 and has since spread the good word of anarchy, hilarity, and rebellion across state lines and even the Atlantic Ocean a few times. We've managed to exist for over 13 years in one form or another by kissing nobody's ass and doing everything ourselves, for the most part. No rules! ... more
