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: Silver Eyes
Hey silver eyes
So you got away
Did I make you cry?
Did I make you stray?

And silver eyes
Is the beast at bay?
I wonder now
How the hell you sleep?

Yea
And I know
That we
Could be so wrong
But we keep lasting
And outlasting the throng
Just we
And we alone
Track Name: Homeland
Maps and maps and maps stretch out beyond
The reaching glow of mechanics warning lights
Beacon clenched tight ‘tween the flesh and ivory
Engine’s purr composed soundtrack tonight

I’ve got more than just a fascination
But when in Rome do as the Romans do
Get out of this town, out of predestination
I will be home soon

Blinders, blinders, blinders red with aching
Hurts more now to let the lids slide down
Parallel white lines stead fast and breeding
Pointing toward that western promised crown

I’ve got more than just a fascination
But when in Rome do as the Romans do
Get out of this town, out of predestination
I will be home soon

She
Won’t
Let
Me Go

She
Still
Has
To know

When in doubt
Cut the line
When in doubt
Cut the line
Scrub the slate
Till it shines
When in doubt
Cut the line

Pay no mind
How far
No such thing
As gone

I’ve got more than just a fascination
But when in Rome do as the Romans do
Get out of this town, out of predestination
I will be home soon
Track Name: Bad Weather
Dawn
Dawn was our place to meet
Wrapped up in the winter of the morning
Winter of the morning to be

Trace
Trace steps back to the scene
Two days spent a rollin’
Two days spent a countin’ the trees

The wind picked up
We we’re the prey
And when they came
When the rains came
They washed us both away

Four
Four restless nights of sleep
Lonely lying cater-cornered
Quilt revealing both of my feet

Than
Than rang bells of retreat
We both we’re in agreement
It was time for us to recede

The wind picked up
We we’re the prey
And when they came
When the rains came
They washed us both away
Track Name: Crooked Teeth
When I see you, I see porcelain
When I see you, I see sheets of glass
When I hear you, I hear beast and child
Screaming out with same breath

Crooked teeth leave crooked bruises
Up and down my crooked spine
Crooked minds make crooked choices
That leave the rest of us behind

When I hold you, I hold apocalypse
When I hold you, I hold Abaddon
When I know you, I know everything
And I know nothing all at once

Crooked teeth leave crooked bruises
Up and down my crooked spine
Crooked minds make crooked choices
That leave the rest of us behind

Today, the day
Today, the day
Today…

Today, the day
Today, the day
Today…

Set a course for rock and roll
Let the trip become your soul

Crooked teeth leave crooked bruises
Crooked teeth leave crooked bruises
Crooked teeth leave crooked bruises
Crooked teeth crooked teeth
Track Name: Folie A Deux
Let’s live like beggars
Making love in sewers
Eat rats from cellars
Roasted on skewers

Folie a duex

Let’s sell our bodies
Collecting pennies
Throw our kisses
Like flesh confetti

Folie a duex

I wonder if you’ll meet me there
Or if I should take your share
Guess we’ll never know
No…

‘Neath Orion’s veil
We’ll thumb to Phoenix
Pledge forever
Guising we mean it

Folie a duex

When the ball unravels
We’ll split the difference
Blame each other
But not the distance

Folie a duex

I wonder if you’ll meet me there
Or if I should take your share
Guess we’ll never know
No…

Girl you’ve got to lift your head now
It’s time to go
Alarms are ringing the deserts singing
It’s time we show
I packed the things you wanted to bring
I wrote the note
Girl lift your head crawl out of that bed
We have to roll
Track Name: Rook: Hoka-Hey
Screaming straight into the sun
Oh dear God, please, what have I done?
It seems as though I have divided my house and my home

Stacks and stacks stacked upon stacks
All piled atop of my back
Now burdened am I with the task to pull two to one

Here in this place, in this tribe
Musn’t echo our backslide
Together we forge a great levy to hold back the waves

With each brick we carefully lay
Our fellowship mortar does than insulate
A wall built to live with our blood coursing through all her veins

I went searching for you
All that I found was myself
Hail, hail, hail to the restless
Rook that will never give up

Stale Mary full of waste
Pick her pocket lick her face
How many beads do I get
If I say your name and call bullshit
Daughters of water, sons of blood
Face down in the mud
Held by a stained glass pane
No progress, just change

Hoka-Hey
Hoka-Hey
Hoka-Hey
Hoka-Hey

I’m gonna be the one to lead the fools in their parade
I’m gonna be their son, I’m gonna be their slave
Benediction, blind ambition,
Richard Nixon’s crucifixion,
Box seats to the end of days
Snap, snap, snap, snap, snappin’ necks
To be the tomahawk to their brave

Hoka-Hey
Hoka-Hey
Hoka-Hey
Hoka-Hey
Track Name: Arizona
’d heard tale
Of the holy grail
Out amongst the cacti and sand

A place so old
Or so I’d been told
A place to a turn a boy into man

Direction unknown
Wild oats to be sewn
No X marked the spot to behold

A secret well kept
Handed down between friends
The name worth more than its weight in gold

Arizona
Arizona
Arizona

Red rocks, red stones
Harbor buffalo bones
Sedona, hear me calling your name?

Sifting bottom to the top
Never ever need to stop
Humming “Some things will never change"

Great gorge to the sin
Bookend to southern kin
A silver cavern birthing the lore

Port western coast
Starboard Spaniards ghost
My dreams rest on Havasu’s floor
Someday I hope they’ll wash to the shore

Arizona
Arizona
Arizona
Arizona

You want yours too?
I fucking want everything
Crash and burn
Or maybe crash and sing
Dig a deeper grave
And baby climb on in
Start a couple of fires
And burn another
And burn another
And burn another bridge

Hidden Track: Shut Me Out

Its been stressful
Its been strange
I’ve rocked our boat
And you’ve cursed my name

Limb from limb
You can tear me apart
Like a blood thirsty bear
After my black heart

Well darlin’
I don’t mind
If you scream and shout

But sweetness please
Don’t you shut me out

I’ll be your Frankenstein
At wind mill retreat
You be the villagers
Armed to the teeth

I’ll be your Dracula
In search of necks
You be the stake
Sinking through my chest

I’ll be your Hunchback
Of Notre Dame
I’ll be your wolfman
With devils palm

You be Pilate
Put me on the cross
You be Katrina
I the southern gulf

Well darlin’
I don’t mind
If you scream and shout

But sweetness please
Don’t you shut me out

I’ll be the Titanic
To your iceberg
You’ll be the steaming train
To my buffalo herd

You’ll be the jaws of life
To my front drivers door
I’ll be the blocks of ice
To your molten lava core

Well darlin’
I don’t mind
If you scream and shout

But sweetness please
Don’t you shut me out
But sweetness please
Don’t you shut me out
I will beg and plead
Just don’t you
Shut me out
