lyrics

All that’s between us and the sky
Fogged glass and dusty blinds
So I scrawled your name then mine
Just to see them side by side
Your boss is pullin’ out his hair
If he only knew why you’re not there
Bells and hammers break the waking day
As sobriety carries its chains

And you look into my eyes
And say you’re through with that disguise
As it’s strewn beside your bed
You vow to never pull it on again

I thought I’d be a hermit forever
Can it still be so as long as we are together?

You’re like fire to pine
All the worlds behind those eyes
As clocks quake and crumble into piles
Think we’re the only ones left alive
All rules seem strange and false
Each hour gone, out there seems more wrong
I’m afraid we’ve been inside for days
And I fear sobriety awaits

As I look into your eyes, I wonder when we last dined
All engagements we never made
Just threw them away with one embrace
All these rules that somehow passed
Are but cracks in the window glass
A kiss set off the drunk of three nights
So savor these firework shards while they fly

I thought I’d be a hermit forever, can it still be so?
For now, we are together.

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
