about

Dead Swagger Austin, Texas

There is a distinct suave romance about Dead Swagger. The lyrics could remind someone of the fast paced dialogues in movies of old along with a nice croon here and there. Dead Swaggers mission is to bring back that old allure that is conveyed in film noirs and black and white movies. Where guys where suave and girls where alluring. So enjoy as they mourn that Golden Age. ... more

Track Name: Dark City
The city sleeps
But thoughts still rattle round my head
And like a drunken fool I swallow back that dread

To the window pane a peer into my old soul
Damned to the dead
We’ll flow against the grain

DARK City
Stay away from me
Though you are my hear t
I still need to breathe
Dark city let me sleep

My veins are running cold from what you done to me
Dark City, Dark City
My eyes Ill sew umm shut, but still I’ll see
Dark City

DARK City
Stay away from me
Though you are my hear t
I still need to breathe
Dark city let me sleep
Track Name: The Artist
What is it you want?
I search the lines on your face
Follow those worry lines
Ask for my demise

My story dear?
Well it’s been at least a year since I’ve been loved
Too personal now?
Well I’ll shout it out
I’ll shout it out

The sick twisted artist
Wears nice suites
and sings
Like an angel
But truly inside I might die every night

Sitting In the corner
Writing blood lines in some old fashion
Like Tim Kasher
And I might spill my blood on a page
I might feel my soul in a rage
Cause I know I’m the one
To make you feel

Am I a fool?
Or am I a tool?
do I give it all up?
or keep breaking the rules?
You wanted it all
Oh I gave too much?
Not I don’t what your touch
cause it’s just too much

Sitting In the corner
Writing blood lines in some old fashion
Like Tim Kasher
I might be the artist
inside
I know the way I feel
It’s my own fault
Track Name: Lovers & Liars
In the sweet summer air
We burst and bloom
And I know nothing I could ever say to you
Could make you feel the way I do

Then the cold autumn falls
A chill enters in
It will never leave till it left
Our love done in

Cause I’ve been lying to you
Lying to you
By the souls of my shoes that walk out on you
I’ve been lying to you
Till my face turned blue

Black Sky night Dies I’m falling out of love
And your falling awake while I’m falling asleep
Where have you been my love
Have you been lying?
Cause I’ve been lying

Lying to you
By the souls of my shoes that walk out on you
I’ve been lying to you
Till my face turned blue

It’s just a little lie
Just a little lie
Oh black sky the night dies
I’m falling out of love
Black sky nights shy
She’s basking in the flood
I’ve been lying to you
Lying to you
Lying to you
Lying you
Track Name: Mourn the Golden Age
Fingers Snapping to a beat long lost
sure we went on but whats the cost
I heard there where pretty girls around

theres keys in the backs of talentless hacks
and oh the money's what makes them go around
and around

and scream queen have killed the radio
glitter has choked the gods
I say raise the dead make pop music rivers red
and meet me on the moon

Cause I have the swagger of a dead man
the voice of the deceased
put on you great grandma's dress
and come and dance with me

Cause I like promiscuous women
I like em' wrapped with bow
you rogue your lips and bat your eyes
then baby it's time to go

HAH

I called up the golden age
she was not there
It seems all I need is in that
sweet night air

HAH

Cause I have the swagger of a dead man
the voice of the deceased
put on you great grandma's dress
and come and dance with me

I'll be in the street
Track Name: Panics & Dreams
Wake up,
wake up in a sweat to the eyes
will you die?
what a dream

Wake up
stumble on like a drunk in the night
He's Splitting at the seams
No I wont stay still
Cause I can't stay still

What a Dream
I must been have been in
but I'll never know
cause I've never been so cold

I've been feeling the effects
Cracking under that stress
Fabricated clouds are falling on me
and theres nothing to do
nothing to do
But

Breathe
It'll all be over
but I still shudder
the man I should be died in the storm
and I know that I'm destined for something
bigger than this town
bigger than any
oh never mind

No I wont stay still
no I can't stay still
like a shark even night to stop is to die
And I'm sick and tired of hearing you complain
How you got lost in the fire
then doused in the flames
And kiss everything you love goodbye
dear cousin, because to
STOP
is to die

What a dream
and I'll never know
since I've never felt so cold
And I know this
this is one last thing I must confess
I'm following my head far from the start
