malefic dowery lyrics – of montreal

malefic dowery

love is not a debtor’s prison
you don’t have to serve a sentence
to pay back what you’ve been given

now i live in fear of your schizophrenic genius
it’s a tempestuous despot
that i can’t seem to propiciate

now i feel you’re provoking me with your fidelity
but your loyalty and affections
are somehow a vulpine act of hostility

now we’re a bore, we’re afternoon tv
this thing our minds are screaming to defy
how can i bury this rebellion
while proving that i’m still, you know, your rock n roll ally?

once more i turn to my crotch for counsel, and it won’t disappoint me
i know it’s the shadow cast by what’s looming in the profane
and it’s how that engenders fear

i was dreaming of the hunt
you clapped your hands sharply twice to wake me up
oh, darkness was gripping the sky
i knew i could still be your rock n roll ally
