lyrics

Take me back to where the ale is golden
And where the rum is black
Where the welcome's bright, where lamplights invite
Through a doorway's thinning cracks
See the dancers swing by the windows
Looking in from the falling snow
For I turned away to the break of day
Singing, off to work I go

Well, there was no end to our unrest
We couldn't leave that town too soon
'Til we found ourselves by the benches
Our guardian, the moon
And then the skies grew all the blacker
And rain came a'drumming down
And it fouled our nest and we got no rest
Take me back to that fucking town

Laughter, a song of the free
Drink this toast proposed to thee

Now we're standing by the clockworks
A rope around our necks
Placing bets on what strange morning
We shall greet after this rest
And it's late on doomsday evening
And we slept all afternoon
Craving days of yore so feared before
Crying, "set, you sun and moon!"

Drink this toast proposed to thee

Where were you when the gates were open?
When the guard had sleepy eyes?
When we first shattered our windows
Running out into the night?
Did you rise to greet the morning?
Did you lose all the bounds of time?
Or were you selling off the present
For a morrow never nigh?

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
