Mike's Songs

I was Krispy-Kremed in the morning

I spent all day on a sugar high

Now I'm staring out the window

Drinkin' beer and eatin' muscadines...

Midnight and my trolls are at the door
The Midnight Trolls I've battled with before
Remaining Disinclined
To follow footsteps of the blind
Well it takes a twisted mind

Midnight and my trolls are at the door
The same old trolls I've battled with before
Waiting for some time
Now trolls are all I find...

A Sunday

He reached across the table
And pulled a cigarette out of a crumpled pack
it was the last one

He stared out of the window
and wondered when the rain was gonna end
He was tired. Of it.

Then he reads the papers
and has his cup of tea
he studies his religion
rubs the belly of his dog B.
in everything he's grateful
but this feeling won't let him be.

My Heart

Sun, 03/29/2009 - 1:43am -- mjpierce

My heart will never be as strong, my love
My eyes will never see the sun the same
The time is never gonna come, my friend
The feelings that we shared have reached the end

My heart will never be as strong, my love
My eyes will never see the sun the same
The time is never gonna come, my friend
The feelings that we shared have reached the end

Recorded on the Fostex 4-track "Mobile Truck Stones thing" on one fine Saturday afternoon, whilst recreating on the South side of Loganville, Georgia

Hey there, Georgie Girl

I'm just a Christmas tree in January
I'm a tattered flag flappin' on the pole
I'm a steel vault of useless information
A safe deposit box full of promissory notes

The Question by Michael J

Sun, 11/23/2008 - 9:01pm -- mjpierce

I don't know the answers
But I can't ask the questions
And I read the papers
so I know there's no such thing as love
and I know there's no such thing as love

So I'll cling to the promise
and yearn for the day
Wipe out the poison
When I go astray

Dogs Ear

I cry out loud, I trouble Heaven with my pleas.  When I'm on my knees, the prayers aren't for me.

Gotta get a candle lit for you. And yours.  And all your Bilderberger Friends.

Thy Kingdom come.  On Earth, as it is in Heaven.

I don't mind, wasting time, its fine to pine for a day that's gone for good. 

Black Song by Michael J

Tue, 01/22/2008 - 11:45pm -- mjpierce

I'm full of holes and certain tones can't hear the rainbow my tongue's in

You'll never know, I'll shed my skin, again

I'm full of holes, missing the parts of the reunion my heart's in

I'll never know, why I'm here tryin' again.


Here was the original recording

We've Lost Him

Mon, 02/05/2007 - 11:04pm -- mjpierce

Jam all the time, I'm not too good with rhymes, but it's better than watchin' TV
The thoughts in my head, well they continue to shred, medicated to a certain degree

My, My, My, I'm going crazy.  I'd go all the way if I wasn't lazy

History back, a Captain Walker in Black, Now you talk about the "Power of 3"
More trouble still, they locked me up in a cell, but it was only on the weekends, you see

An Anthem of Sorts

Sun, 01/21/2007 - 7:58pm -- mjpierce

"This is my commandment: Love each other."
- Jesus Christ

Say my prayers every day when I get up in the morning
sit down with the daily blues and a cigarette
My way usually isn't clear but I can find my way home
Mama told me not to do something I'd regret


Now is the time I need to write down that line
about all of the things I ever wanted to do
Fading away there's nothing more I can say
and I wish that it weren't but then I know that its true

"In this world, you will have trouble;
But take heart, I have overcome the world."
- Jesus Christ

Way Hey

Well then, I sinned again with this thing still crawlin' through my head

And then again, I saw the end, like a vision right before my eyes (I keep trying to deny this part)

[ The Indian Shaman ]

Been waiting on the worm to turn, for the dog to have his day.

Been waiting on the sun to shine, for the clouds to blow away

You say its just wasted time, but I say "No Fucking Way" (Maybe that's a vulgar thing to say)

[ Better Late than never ]

Mama, don't cry for me

Every single day I was spittin' in the wind, and I had another chance to do it all again. Party all night, gonna dance and sing, stick around til morning, see what day-break brings

Well I ain't no Monkey - I can't climb no tree, ain' t gonna make no monkey outta me.

[ U.S. Airspace is now CLOSED ]

[The Blues]
I hit the bricks, I took a walk - no peace of mind
I'm down to skin and bones, with too much on my mind

When I moan - you know I got the blues

I try to quit this bad behaviour, stop thinking bout these
Loganville blues

[The Twin guitars]

[The train departs to a digital world]

[The saints pray for my soul]
