lyrics

We are proud, willing, and free
We brim with electricity
If the monsters should pounce
We will dog them with fleas
Mutually assured to keep up the peace

Here it resides
In the animal hides
In the barrels of nitro and grease
In the knots in the cords
In the holes in the boards
In the footnote inside the lease

We have treaties to keep us at ease
We’ve made pikes out of all our cut trees
We’re safe in this fort
So un-knock your knees
(But the truth resides in the minor keys)

Here you can find it
Though no book can bind
It won’t flash on the marquee
The foundation you’re on
It feels like a con
And the floor is quicksand not concrete

MacArthur Los Angeles, California

Featuring the music and words of Arthur Winer. In the late-90s, MacArthur gained a reputation as a melodic, power pop quartet featuring original, lyrically- sophisticated songwriting and Neil Young-like guitar solos from Winer.

Now in LA, MacArthur is back with a new band. Check out 2014’s THE FALL GUY for the New York/Los Angeles transition-era tunes.
