Mike's Songs

Talking Rock

Tue, 06/30/2015 - 9:46pm -- mjpierce

From 2005

Talking Rock is on my mind; a simpler place, simpler time
Talking Rock is not hard to find; I close my eyes, and Church bells chime.

Talking Rock a different time, when I was young, unrefined
Talking Rock remembers me, when I go there, a jubilee

Sovereign Citizen

Wed, 06/17/2015 - 10:20pm -- mjpierce

I rented a Toyota, and I took it to the sand.
I did not need permission of any woman or any man.
Don't know where you'll find me, but I'll tell you where I'm not
On a beach chair relaxing, drinking beer and smoking pot.

You don't own me.

I command you.

I'm a Sovereign Citizen

You know who this is for

Uncle Same

Mon, 02/23/2015 - 7:31am -- mjpierce

It was Daytona in my pickup truck,
In the same year that the terrorists struck

Even now I think about the man
And remember where those buildings stand

Took some time before we'd find out
It was Uncle Sam, that planned it out, and without a doubt, has a plan to get me and you.


She got my chakra

I write a song it can't be wrong
I'm living with the girl that I made a vow to
Feeling like I kept the promises made

She was young and I was poppin
we were in love and there was no stoppin'
I sometimes wondered why she was leading me on

She won my heart with her mashed potatoes
We always laughed she was scared of tornados
Sitting on the back porch during a storm


Wishing Well 2015

Tue, 01/06/2015 - 8:51pm -- mjpierce

There was a time I tried to write rock operas.  I'm gonna try again in 2015

Waiting on the perfect day
You'll see life just slip away
When I'm wishing in the well
I like to ride the carousel

When I'm coming on softly,
And I couldn't afford to be vague

Wasted Bleeding Heart

Sun, 12/21/2014 - 8:00pm -- mjpierce

Just noodlin' around

Some days were meant to be wasted.
I'm just trying to do my part

Meditate in deep concentration
And all my shit's in a shopping cart

The Studio is back up with full Audio/MIDI capabilities

Older than you Blues

Mon, 02/17/2014 - 11:31pm -- mjpierce

I started trippin'
On a Monday afternoon.  It wasn't pretty.
I started drinkin' just past noon.  Whoa Whoa Whoa Whoa.

It comes down so hard on me,
It makes me feel like, baby, what's the use?

ChemTrail Song

Sat, 12/28/2013 - 4:14pm -- mjpierce

Planes leaving trails across the sky
Chemicals are fallin' on me.
I didn't feel bad, until I realized
They've killed off all of the Bees

I wish I could stay in my own little world
But these bastards just provoke me.
I looked at my Bible, as I picked up my rifle
And loaded up to go to DC
