about

Disco Machine Gun Wilmington, Delaware

The idea of Disco Machine Gun began in late 2006 with a few riffs. The moniker was created during a drunken one man dance at a party in May 2008. The actual band began work a couple days later. Since then members have come and gone and many a song has been written. Disco Machine Gun will never end. ... more

Track Name: The Spool
I place
My hands
Over
Your mouth

So tightly
Until
The breath’s
No more

Bring ropes
Bring chains
Together
They’re placed

Around
The spool
From neck
To thigh

Slow dragging
You down
The river’s
Awake

It’s calling
You home
So go
My friend
So go, my friend…
Track Name: Glass Mouth
I know why you’ve come
And I know where you’ve been
I know what you want
I know how to begin

Glass mouth
Glass mouth

Shattered fangs reveal
The secrets you’ve kept close
Here I stand confirmed
Father, son, holy ghost
I know why you’ve come
And I know where you’ve been
I know what you want
I know how to begin

Glass mouth
Glass mouth

One thousands wrongs, one thousand rights
What does family mean to you?
What does family mean to you?
They made my bed and they set it a blaze
They tucked those sheets so tight, so tight
I had one choice
Burn, burn, burn, burn, burn

-Roberts
Track Name: And If
And if its hard to steer
Than you should just go home my dear
And if the devils near
Don’t speak my name

And if the shadows fall
From places that you can’t recall
If heads crowd now from wall to wall
Don’t think my name

Don’t breath
Don’t bleed

And if the roots extend
From trees with fruit they will not lend
If carved bark scars refuse to mend
Don’t cross my name

And if the waters rise
With tears you thought you’d never cry
If lye soaked limbs begin to rise
Don’t wish my name

Don’t breath
Don’t bleed

If dreams and memories get confused
Oh, well that is just how it should be
And if you feel you’re being used
Oh, well than I guess that’s fine by me

And if these words reveal
A gaping wound time won’t let heal
If masks hang from the ones you feel
Don’t fake my name

And if in sleep you dream
Of pasts rehashed that could still be
If delusions set you after me
Don’t trace my name

If dreams and memories get confused
Oh, well that is just how it should be
And if you feel you’re being used
Oh, well than I guess that’s fine by me

And if I slit your neck
For treading paths that I begat
Don’t breath, don’t bleed, don’t beg regret
You know my name…
Track Name: (We) Don't Weep
I went to your room
Collected your bones
Pulled up the floor
Gave them a home

There is no time
To think that time is on our side
Keep your nose to the grind
Keep one foot in the fire

And I’ll sleep
‘Till the morn
Brings me peace
I will sleep
‘Till the morn
Grants me peace

I went to my room
Pulled up the floor
Crawled down inside
Replaced the boards

There is no time
To think that time is on our side
Keep your nose to the grind
Keep one foot in the fire

And I’ll sleep
Till the morn
Brings me peace
I will sleep
Till the morn
Grants me peace

We don’t weep
No, we don’t weep
We don’t weep
No, we don’t weep
Track Name: E.Y.E.S.
Once a lover came upon me
While ‘tween the wolf and dog
That lover swore she’d done no wrong

I could see deceit was written
Across her teeth and tongue
Took my thread, sewed that liars lips up

I made my plans clear to be
Gone before the morn
I laced my boots up ‘fore the dawn

Drove for days or weeks, can’t say which
Until the fork, I found
All at once the noises grew so loud

I can hear their foot steps walkin’
I can hear their heartbeats stalkin’
I can hear them talkin’ with their eyes

Ha!
Ha!
Ha!
Ha!

There a sinner waited for me
And she took me home
That sinner took me in alone

She said, pigs get fed my darling
And hogs, the blade they meet
The tricks to know the perfect time to eat

Smoke spun while we lay dormant
A blackened tree, it grew
‘Tween swirling leaves her gaze shown through

Empty bottles rang with each move
Our Shangri-La ahead
We leaned in close and than she said

I can hear their foot steps walkin’
I can hear their heartbeats stalkin’
I can hear them talkin’ with their eyes

Ha!
Ha!
Ha!
Ha!

It’ll all be over
For too long
Find your love

It’ll all be over
For too long
Try your love

It’ll all be over
For too long
Tide your love

It’ll all be over
For too long
Hide your love

Whiskey, women, and gin
Are bad for my knees
But they’re so damn good
For my soul
They come one and all
Into our cities
In the hopes that we
Will make them whole
Track Name: Toiler
The toilers in my head
And won’t let me decypher how I feel
The toilers in my bed
And won’t let me distinguish what is real

Cause he makes
And he breaks
And he takes your fucking life away

The toiler held my hand
Over my mouth so I would keep it shut
The toiler licked my neck
Until it bled and told me I’m a slut

Cause she makes
And she breaks
And she takes your fucking life away

Cause they make
And they break
And they take your fucking life away
Track Name: Blood Praise
Give blood praise
(We live, we love, we lie)
Want no slave
(This life, we live, is not life)
Trust the veil
(This time, I know, it’s done)
Bride so pale
(Hands tied, blood drawn, blindfold)

(I)
I knocked down the mountains
(Lied)
I watched the cities all fall
I was waiting for
You

(I)
I dried up the oceans
(Lied)
One thousand fish left to crawl
I was waiting for…

Blessed for spawn
No lust drawn
Framed in time
Mine all mine

(I)
(Lied)
Track Name: Car Sick
Car sick on Christmas night
In your bed, puke to the right
La dada, la da da

Soft touch and you start to laugh
Brisk tea splattered everywhere
La dada, la da da

You and me
We are different than it seems
You and me
We are different than it seems

Big move, but we got some help
From Wild Oak and Danzig himself
La dada, la da da

Two feet and the snow still fell
On you, me, and the beast from hell
La dada, la da da

You and me
We are different than it seems
You and me
We are different than it seems

This year my wish to be
Sick again on Christmas eve
But I’m alone, so I can’t sleep
I gotta a Grinch but I got no tree
It’s gettin’ cold, hope the frost will spread
Cross the river and crawl in your bed
Wrap its arms ‘round you and Shred
Freeze these words deep inside your head

You and me
We we’re different than it seemed
You and me
We we’re different than it seemed
Track Name: Art Thieves And Diamond Smugglers
Oh lord the cool air
It feels like romance
Here the nights last
Forever

A rising tide will
Lift all boats on its quilt
And waves won’t stop till
The moon drops

Gotta get
Gotta go
Gotta make these things work just right
Gotta see
Gotta smell
Gotta touch that hiding sunrise
Gotta be
Gotta be
Gotta be
What’s been declared

On the lamb
Book in hand
Wanna burn away in plain sight
Find a way
Be a stray
It’s ok, gotta little life
Gotta fray
Gotta fray
Gotta fray

Here’s to farewell
Here’s to goodbye
Here’s to those that
Give up the lie

Fill the tank and border break
Work fast make no mistake
How long till the other side?
Fill the tank and border break
Everything is now at stake
I’ll show you yours, if you show me mine

We are
All cut
From the
Same cloth
We are
Art thieves
Diamond
Smugglers

Daddy won’t let you
Make your moves
Daddy won’t let you
Sing the blues
Daddy says darling
You best choose
Daddy’s in the graveyard
Win or lose

Time to make it worth your while
Time to make it fit your style
Time to let those suckers know
One more chance for the fucker blows
