MRS. BLUEBEARD

I want to say I learned something valuable today
alas my murdered remains are incapable of learning anything

trusted you—I should have never trusted you
in fact I never did
what’s the use, I’m not complaining
I’m not anything

is this what’s supposed to happen when you’re only trying to do right in this wicked world?
probably I should already know this
probably I should graciously accept what I get

most people wouldn’t hang the corpses up for review
dearest, I can only hope most people are nothing like you

nervous tics that I pretended not to see
that’s how I was brought up
warning signs: death metal albums
hang in there baby poster

is this how you thank somebody for their selfless loyalty
is this what you do?
pardon me for failing to grasp how this works
excuse my breathtaking ignorance

is this what’s supposed to happen when you’re only trying to do right in this wicked world?
probably I should already know this
probably I should graciously accept what I get

                           A NOTE FROM JOHN F., TMBG


Merry Christmas!!! What a year! Here is epic high fives to everyone who came out to all the shows. What a blast. Thanks to our amazing band and crew for making us look so real, and to the offices of Hornblow Group for putting in the 24-7 to keep everybody sorted out.

We are playing New Year’s Eve with Jonathan Coulton and then touring across Australia in February, but things are winding down fast in TMBGland in general. This is the last weekly installment of Dial-A-Song for the foreseeable future, but undoubtedly there is more to come. 

If you want to enjoy this year’s output in a more permanent form, or simply need to CATCH UP, can we point you towards our two brand new releases in all formats My Murdered Remains and The Escape Team. These projects are Idlewild exclusives and won’t be streaming, which is not to say they aren’t top flight and super-excellent. There is also the formidable Lincoln on red vinyl, and pre-orders for the John Henry Demos (which, like ALL our vinyl orders includes an instant download).
