Bright Eyes – Coyote Song Lyrics 4 years ago
A few corrections

South san Gabriel

Copper wire sunset

And the last chorus seems kind of out of wack

Been fake
We're out to take
A place that's safe
That you might wait a day

A lonesome broken dawn
That finally comes
Just as I was losing faith
You keep every promise you make



Other than that, awesome job :) High five!

Monsters of Folk – Man Named Truth Lyrics 4 years ago
I figured I'd repost this as a general comment because I don't know if people read the reply comments, so sorry if this feels like spam.



Ever seen someone use h? When they're nodding off there's this kind of "ice cream grin" going on, like a mouth fit for an ice cream cone. Go to youtube, I'm sure there's a video of someone nodding off. This whole song is about heroin in my opinion. I'm not just drawing from the obvious "met a blonde afghan with that heroin" but there's so much more to it.

that has an amazing interview talking about each and every song by Mike Mogis. He says:

That was one we actually did play as Bright Eyes a couple of times on our last tour. That was the first Monsters of Folk song that was ever written. We were playing "Morning Becomes Eclectic" [on KCRW] in California. We were on Bright Eyes Tour, M. Ward was opening and we said, "You should come play with us." On our way to there they stopped by - it was brutally early and Conor was hung-over – we stopped by this herbalist store, to try to get some sort of magical herb to make you feel good. The salesman, his name was Truth. We went back to KCRW and Conor was fucking around on guitar with Matt and they came up with that chord progression and refrain: "Never buy nothing from a man named truth," together as Matt and Conor, and we said right away: "That was going to be our first Monsters of Folk song." We tucked it away as a Monsters of Folk song, but Conor ended up finishing it. It was a collaborative effort for like the first two minutes of that song. This was two years before we got to recording anything for Monsters of Folk.

I think the "herb" was actually opiates.. just my opinion though.
