It’s a very tricky thing to make a shamble out of string With a life caught in the center and suspended like a sling It’s in the way you tie the knots and in how you connect the dots And in first sight and second thoughts and now the world’s refocusing And maybe there is something you can’t see until you need it And maybe it was right there all along… But I hold the hills in my heart and in my bones I can dance the Morris, I can wear midnight. With my land beneath my boots I will never be alone And I’ve got a hat full of sky. When it’s your life out on the chalk, you weigh your words each time you talk You do the work that’s needing done, and then somehow you learn to see Tween right and wrong and life and death, and between this world and the next There’s more edges to be watched than you thought there could ever be And maybe there is something you can’t see until you need it And maybe it was there all along… Cause I hold the hills in my heart and in my bones I can dance the Morris, I can wear midnight. With the strength of those before me I will never be alone And I’ve got a hat full of sky. And out on the chalk a horse is running Frozen in time for all to see… But I’ve seen the world while I was truly awake And I’ve watched the white horse prance along the cliffs beside the sea But I hold the hills in my heart and in my bones I can dance the Morris, I can wear midnight. With my land beneath my boots I will never be alone And I’ve got a hat full of sky. Cause I hold the hills in my heart and in my bones I can dance the Morris, I can wear midnight. With the strength of those before me I will never be alone And I’ve got a hat full of sky.

They say that haters gonna hate Well I’m not participating in the hate and all the hating coming from your crew or the shade you threw It’s easier to quit To be standing on the sidelines not avoiding all the landmines set in front of me No matter what you see You try and find a way bring to me down… Try to break my dreams and send them crashing to the ground. Keep piling the pressures one by one until my diamond self comes shining through Because of you I’ll be stronger, I’ll be better Every hardship that I weather, I will make it through. Because of you. And every milestone that I pass And every day that kicks my ass until I’m black and blue I’ll make it through Just to spite you. When we were only kids They told is anything was possible they had their fingers crossed and I just smiled inside I still believe that lie. But you have given in… And your dreams have all but faded and you’re miserable and jaded, taking aim at me Because I found the key. You try and find a way bring to me down… Try to break my dreams and send them crashing to the ground. Keep piling the pressures one by one until my diamond self comes shining through Because of you I’ll be stronger, I’ll be better Every hardship that I weather, I will make it through. Because of you. And every milestone that I pass And every day that kicks my ass until I’m black and blue I’ll make it through Just to spite you. Cause I define my own success Sing for people with my lyrics tattooed on their chests And maybe I will never see The dreams you think I hope to be But every darkened tunnel has a spotlight shining bright on me

Every now and then (on my feed) I’ll start to see it again A well known face (celebrity) Who passed in two thousand and ten… I saw this way back when… Now I get to see it again… Over and over and over Here we go again right there he’s Posting retrobituaries They died years ago, I swear please Don’t post retrobituaries I really wouldn’t mind but… (but I do) I mourned them the first time Maybe if you did some research (open the link) Instead of sharing blind. I know that you mean well, but You keep my feed all clogged up Over and over and over… Here we go again right there he’s Posting retrobituaries They died years ago, I swear please Don’t post retrobituaries Nobody’s half as famous As online the day that they passed, And again in four years and five more…

Love And... 02:33
I… shudder when I read your name. Shivers inside my brain, can’t think straight, And I… force myself to turn away, Whenever I see your face, The thought of you plays On my innards like a squeezebox My pulse begins to race It’s more than an urge, a compulsion It’s funny how it happens to me Every single time And these are all signs of both love and revulsion I… start to feel a little weak inside I kinda wanna run and hide, and my palms sweat And I…’m uneasy when you’re around, And even just the sound Of your voice makes My stomach flip, can’t get a grip, my pulse begins to race It’s more than an urge, a compulsion It’s funny how it happens to me Every single time And these are all signs of both love and revulsion Can’t seem to eat, beneath my feet The world begins to shift It’s more than an urge, a compulsion It’s funny how it happens to me Every single time And these are all signs of both love and revulsion

I like fantasy and horror, you like 50 shades of gray Our love-life stalled so tonight we’re gonna role play You won’t need a police badge or nurse uniform at all Tonight our bedroom is a dungeon crawl… I’ll check each and every surface for traps and secret doors, I’m gonna loot the room! I’ll climb up on the furniture, I’ll get down on all fours, I’m gonna loot the room! Until every single opening is thoroughly explored, I’m gonna loot the room! I’m a gamer, baby, you won’t leave here bored… I’m gonna loot the room! Put on these wings and leather thong and latex rubber horns I lit some candles, drew a magic circle on the floor And you can be the succubus I tried to summon forth We can wrestle for your treasure and then both go back for more And check each and every surface for traps and secret doors, I’m gonna loot the room! I’ll climb up on the furniture, I’ll get down on all fours, I’m gonna loot the room! Until every single opening is thoroughly explored, I’m gonna loot the room! I’m a gamer, baby, you won’t leave here bored… I’m gonna loot the room! And I ordered beer and pizza, we can share a hero’s feast, But that’ll have to wait until we slay this sexy beast. And check each and every surface for traps and secret doors, I’m gonna loot the room! I’ll climb up on the furniture, I’ll get down on all fours, I’m gonna loot the room! Until every single opening is thoroughly explored, I’m gonna loot the room! I’m a gamer, baby, you won’t leave here bored… I’m gonna loot the room!

Are you pondering what I’m pondering I think so but I don’t know It seems every time I ask you that you get the answer wrong And this world’s so complicated And we’re endlessly frustrated And then re-incarcerated in this lab cage before dawn But tonight, prepare to be hurled Though my labyrinthine plan as it’s unfurled Through elaborate machinations around which our tails are curled As we try to take over the world… Maybe I will build a growth ray, join The enigmatic group T.H.E.Y. Or buy up tall real estate and melt the polar ice caps? Place a quiz inside of Cosmo, Or just hijack a tornado, Or host a pancake jamboree with some psychotropic crabs But tonight, prepare to be hurled Though my labyrinthine plan as it’s unfurled Through elaborate machinations around which our tails are curled As we try to take over the world… Because the world is broken, can’t you see And just needs to be run by me, I have the mousy finger around which it should be twirled And every plan we’ve tried has failed, til now But this one will succeed somehow, Cause it’s time to take over the world!

Breathe 04:23
The day is slowing down The gloaming settles in And fast between your ears Are all your doubts and fears All those wasted years And all you might have been. And heavy is your heart For all you couldn’t hold Played Judas to your dreams You still hear their screams… In faded movie scenes Before the credits roll… You just have to hold on….. You just have to hold on….. You just have to hold on….. and breathe. There's this moment just before you fall asleep When the world is lit by countless falling stars When you look through the lenses of the failures that you keep And can’t see yourself the way you really are… You just have to hold on….. You just have to hold on….. You just have to hold on….. and breathe. The night is almost gone Dawn is closing in And as the world awakes The spell around you breaks Count every step you take Paint on that Cheshire grin You just have to hold on….. You just have to hold on….. You just have to hold on….. and breathe. And breathe...

Whisper 03:57
The stage is dark and there you pause In the faded echo of the night's applause And then you second-guess if any real successes Are worth the costs Now the ritual begins Where you review your doubts and fears, your secret sins That are laughable to everyone but you Cue the violins Cause in the art of self-destruction, you're a master So adept at sabotaging your own dreams And you whisper to yourself that you're not worthy And that whisper Sounds like a scream

Oh Molly Grue, Where have you gone? You couldn’t find a unicorn, You’d searched for one since you were just a lass. And now that one has come to you Your maiden days have long been through, Now that your hair of gold has all withered to dried grass You say Where were you when I was new When I was young and fair? Now all my happy endings have all vanished in the air… Like Robin Hood, Maid Marian, And all their merry men And all the things we dared to dream back when The ghosts that haunt our memories now Have never really been There are no happy endings because nothing… Nothing ever ends… Oh, Schmendrick, dear, what will you do? The magic once inside of you You felt when you were younger has come to you at last And all the power that you need, Is held within you, locked and keyed, Why must we speak in riddles with the questions that we ask? We are not always what we seem, and hardly ever what we dream. And all our happy endings have Abandoned us, it seems… Like Robin Hood, Maid Marian, And all their merry men And all the things we dared to dream back when The ghosts that haunt our memories now Have never really been There are no happy endings because nothing… Nothing ever ends… When the wine drinks itself, the passage you will find, When the skull speaks, when the clock strikes the right time Like Robin Hood, Maid Marian, And all their merry men And all the things we dared to dream back when The ghosts that haunt our memories now Have never really been There are no happy endings because nothing… Nothing ever ends…

about

M is my ninth full-length geek rock album, and is the result of a combination of enthusiasm for the things I love and careful introspection. I have silly, fun songs on here, songs about my favorite fiction, and songs that directly address my own struggles with depression.

My music is made possible by the support of my backers on Patreon.com, especially Robin Abess, John Woolard, Shouts Out Unicorn, Jeremy Jackson and Jennifer Lewis, John Haight, and James Doster. All of my patrons mean the world to me. You can join them, if you'd like, at patreon.com/mikeymason
