about

“Suit of Swords” is an album that I present to you entirely free of charge. However, if you enjoy this record and you would like to support Glowbug there is a very simple but incredibly important way for you to do that. Take a few minutes, seconds even, and share it with someone else. Post it on your wall, tweet it, tumble it, send it, like it, blog it, or burn it to a disk and give it away. It’s a completely free way for you to support the art that you like with a few simple clicks.

If you would still prefer to purchase “Suit of Swords” in a more traditional, monetary fashion I would love for you to follow this link to the website of the Cancer Research Institute (www.cancerresearch.org) or Cure Search for Children’s Cancer (www.curesearch.org) and donate there instead. An average album runs around 10$, but you can obviously give more, less or nothing at all. Both charities are top rated and are specifically geared towards funding actual scientific research for cancer prevention.

Thank you so much for your support and love, I hope these songs can bring you some excitement. Don’t forget to pass it along.

Track Name: Heatwave
I used to run with the idiots,
I cut my teeth in one resentful tribe
When something dark lightens up again,
I won’t lie, It feels alright

Who wants a life on a moving train?
The never-ending mountains crawling by,
Pretending I can’t see anything,
No heart, or no eyes

Heatwave, heatwave

Someone will ask “Now where have you been?”
And in the silence, they might crack a smile,
Well, we all know that you’re talented,
But you’re dead, and I’m alive

Heatwave, heatwave
Track Name: The Cockroach
I’m not your friend, my bayonet,
Covered in blood, from hilt to end,
Please understand, it wasn’t my plan,
All that you are, all that you’ve been

I’m in your house, I’m in your bed,
I’m in the walls when you’re sleeping,
I called you up on the weekend,
To see if you’re still ringing

Argue and leave, checking to see,
Who follows out, into the street,
Death is a curse, I will not go first,
Famous last words, “It could have been worse”

I’m in your house, I’m in your bed,
I’m in the walls when you’re sleeping,
I called you up on the weekend,
To see if you’re still ringing
Track Name: Run Like Hell
Hand out all of your love,
There’s a time for walking, otherwise we run,
Barrel, hammer, and stud,
Undone, undone, right now it’s all we’ve got

We’re gonna run like hell,
Like every moment is the middle of summer

Take note all you lost souls,
Got a line you aught to, line you aught to tow,
Tighten all of your bows,
Tie on, tie on, right now it’s all you’ve got

We’re gonna run like hell,
Like every moment is the middle of summer
Track Name: Smoke Eyes
I know all the words you’ve spoken,
All the words you’ll speak,
All the sentences you’ve given up,
How about some music? “Fly Me to the Moon”?
I know that one,
This hole is only getting deeper,
One day I’m shipping home to see her

I’m at the end of my rope,
Under the ashes of the apple blossom,
Your eyes were covered in smoke,
I tried but I choked, to reach your branches

Oh god, someone call a doctor,
Someone call a shrink,
Could you put the coroner on hold?
Once I find a meeting, then I’ll try to stop,
For now I’m stuck,
This hole is only getting deeper
One day I’m shipping home to see her

I’m at the end of my rope,
Under the ashes of the apple blossom,
Your eyes were covered in smoke,
I tried but I choked, to reach your branches
Track Name: New Vinyl
I’m alone, and it lights me up,
All aglow on the tongue

Feeling that pull of the rhythm,
Some understated line to hum,
When I get my glitter I’ll choose one,
Blood on the cover of your new vinyl,
That you bought from a pawnshop,
Feeling that pull on the trigger,
Some other song about a gun,
When I was a child I wrote one,
Blood on the cover of your new vinyl,
That you bought from a pawnshop,
Feeling that pull

On the road, in the aching heat,
Writing songs while you sleep

Feeling that pull of the rhythm,
Some understated line to hum,
When I get my glitter I’ll choose one,
Blood on the cover of your new vinyl,
That you bought from a pawnshop,
Feeling that pull on the trigger,
Some other song about a gun,
When I was a child I wrote one,
Blood on the cover of your new vinyl,
That you bought from a pawnshop,
Feeling that pull

No one’s gonna catch me ‘cause I’m too fast,
No one’s gonna catch me with time on my hands
Track Name: Strange Inside
I found you curled up, a star of blood and bone,
One thousand days of never going out alone,
It’s not enough to be the heart inside a home,
You are the one but you will never ever know,

Come back my love

You’re just my type, a little strange inside,
Howling all night, a little song to keep alive

Another little talk, another scenic view,
I know the way you get when we are on the move,
It’s not enough to be the heart inside a home,
You are the one but you will never ever know,

Come back my love

You’re just my type, a little strange inside,
Howling all night, a little song to keep alive
Track Name: City of Motion
We were all young and saved by the ocean,
We were in love with all the waves.
Los Angeles, the city of motion,
Coming and going under the haze

The 101, the vein of a giant,
Pumping out gold and silver blood,
Twenty-four frames projected from Fountain,
Up to the canyon, spelling our names

I’ve said all I’m going to say about love,
And your incredible frame rate
Track Name: Magic If
All of those uncovered stars,
Made aware of who you are,
It’s a dream, but it feels good,
To pretend I’m something bright,
On a Greyhound driving overnight

“Save yourself!” he screams, an actor,
“I turned my back on everything I’ve ever asked for”
Covered up, stowed in the rafters,
The city overflows with prerecorded laugher

Underneath a purple sky,
All the desert wildlife,
Find my skull, and it feels good,
To be certain that I’m gone,
I’m not there for scorpions to crawl on

“Save yourself!” he screams, an actor,
“I turned my back on everything I’ve ever asked for”
Covered up, stowed in the rafters,
The city overflows with prerecorded laugher

My name in lights
Track Name: Oh No!
I totaled my car, I burned down my home,
To figure out how I got here

I wanted to star in every show,
So I could fly all over the world

A couple of hours before you came home,
I covered up all of the doors

And all of the ash, and all of the smoke,
Was filling my palm until I burned

You’re never gonna figure out my name, oh no!
Another one to cut, another one to sew, on my own

Whatever the cost I want you to know,
I tried to get out of your hair

A permanent scar wherever you go,
Is all that I call my own these days

You’re never gonna figure out my name, oh no!
Another one to cut, another one to sew, on my own

A ten of swords to keep at night,
Under the bed and out of sight
Track Name: Alive in the Back of Your Car
We are the people in a photograph,
In circulation far from here,
We’ve got all the old alarms,
Resounding, singing since I disappeared

Under the leverage of your motor hum,
The shudder of you in my spine,
It takes everything I’ve got,
To tell you “I don’t want to be untied”

I’m in the back of your car, alive

Wallpaper lighting from an overpass,
Cuts angels on the bedroom wall,
It’s not big enough to move in here but,
Wheels take me everywhere I want,

I’m in the back of your car, alive
Track Name: White Lies
How could I not like you in the middle of the night?
So much hidden love and so little time,
Our faces turning blue,
From barely breathing in this pose,
I want the world to know who

What a move! Castling and the doubled rooks,
It’s all true, you can hold me to that

I cannot lie,
They’re the words that’ll hold the axe,
White lies are the ones that’ll call you back

She is a magic hat in the attire of a hoax,
We manifest a bird singing every note,
Some people like to see,
Metal underneath the fold,
But the illusions not for you

Why not you? Well it gets more blood to the audience,
They’ll need proof, at least we’ll cover that

I cannot lie,
They’re the words that’ll hold the axe,
White lies are the ones that’ll call you back
Track Name: Like a Knife Along the Coast
Catch a bird as it falls,
Broken wings and all the other fragments.
A siren and it’s alright

I’m here to cut the land,
Like a knife along the coast,
In the California sun

“One more time”, I sigh
Close my eyes and cross the yellow line
A siren and it’s alright,

I’m here to cut the land
Like a knife along the coast
In the California sun
Track Name: Young America
Stationed on the avenue, Selma and Vine,
Strung up and hollowed out alive,
I don’t want to lose you, petals turning white

Young America, your name’s always on the wire
Young America, go on, light yourself on fire

I never thought of you that way again,
One more disfigured perfect ten,
I don’t care who killed you, I just want you back

Young America, your name’s always on the wire
Young America, go on, light yourself on fire
Track Name: You Are the Ace
I don’t care if it hurts, if I know where we go,
Youth is not a curse when you live on your own

You’re all that I wish I could have,
After I’ve turned into bones,
I can’t sleep from counting the deck,
But you are the ace in the hole

I don’t care if I’m first, I can’t see you alone,
I’m fine here in the black like before I was born

You’re all that I wish I could have,
After I’ve turned into bones,
I can’t sleep from counting the deck,
But you are the ace in the hole
