lyrics

pity she bows her head down to her knee
so fleet she takes a hold of me to dance a tango, terribly
pity she’s chaos with a cutting edge
(pity my poor pity pity my poor pity me)
threatening on the window ledge to dive 2 feet into the hedge
(pity my poor pity pity my poor pity me)
filled my plate with cream and butter now I’m hungry all the time
threw my ace into the gutter took my place in line
all the bright birds spark and sputter
drunk on rhyme and barley wine
open mouths all kinds of weather thirsty all the time

pity she purse her lips and bind her brow
once had such a pretty bow but look at how she stumbles now
(pity my poor pity pity my poor pity me)
pity she gestures out but faces in
(pity my poor pity pity my poor pity me)
tossed about on every wind as if they were all wars to win
(pity my poor pity pity my poor pity me)
filled my plate with cream and butter now I’m hungry all the time
threw my ace into the gutter took my place in line
all the bright birds spark and sputter
drunk on rhyme and barley wine
open mouths all kinds of weather thirsty all the time
(pity my poor pity pity my poor pity me)
pity she chatters to me all day long
(pity my poor pity pity my poor pity me)
she can’t leave any bone alone she’ll chew me up until I’m gone

about

Myshkin Joshua Tree, California

Myshkin and an ever-evolving crew of restless gamblers—string, horn, drum, key, and and wave players. Passions range from tango to electronica, folk-noir to gypsy-swing to modern classical to rocknroll. Literate & spooky. Myshkin mostly plays guitars. When warm, she sings like a shiver down your chakras. Like a heart breaking all wide open. Like one in utter control of uncontrollable things. ... more
