lyrics

Forgive me, master, if I hear no rhyme in your glory ode
As it was sung in the days of yore
Now we sing our own
You see, I got this dream of turning grey
And having cleared off every plate
And to never look to tomorrow's rogues
To say they went too far today, hey!

To long to awaken every soul
From the calm that quells their storm
From the peace that blinds them through the times
When they should have gone to war
Mother, cry and weep for your bright babe
Father, hold her through the rains
Let the thieves not take her away from me
And turn her to a slave of the trades

The dreams of the morning
Let me not die mourning
May the sirens turn a'shrugging
As we carry on a'laughing
As we carry on a'laughing all the way

May there always be fish in your streams
And water in your wells
And to those that peddle empty heavens
We'll take your silver and run like hell
May there always be rage in your heart
When a master brings the reigns
To detest the thieves of our daughters and sons
And raise from the dead today

The dreams of the morning
Let me not die mourning
May the devils come a'crying
Carry me away a'laughing
As we all go a'laughing to storytelling graves

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
