about

The Lion Oh My Spokane, Washington

Named after a Wizard of Oz reference, the band’s frenetic and dense arrangements have a frightening, often unsettling maturity to them. Recalling a more earnest and personal golden era of music from the early aughts, the group’s music is challenging and complicated in the most visceral yet bizarrely welcoming way.
The band’s humble beginnings suits its deceptively simple style.

Track Name: The Road
It's a long and winding road... not a place that many go
But it's where I have to be
It's a long and treaturous way... So glad you decided to stay
For as long as you're with me
It'll be just like a dream... Lay the blame on make believe
And hope you never leave
I wish you would not go, but we know..we both know
That there's life beyond these walls
On our own. On our own
We both know that you're not...
It's a torn and finite thing... increase the blistering
With words from long ago
You see me as I am... I know you as you were
Tragic and without a plan
I wish you would not go, but we know..we both know
That there's life beyond these walls
On our own. On our own
We both know that there's no going home
Track Name: Friendly Fire
There's a loud sound and I don't know where it's from
It's an odd town where people see me and run
It seems that all they say is no one asked me to come
You are not the only who's fighting just to find a way out
Let us follow the lights in the sky and hope it's just some friendly fire
If there's a chance this could be won
I will raise my empty gun
Help me fight until the last of us
Charge their lines with empty guns
There's a good chance they'll say we have to fall back
It's a free for all and no one's sure what they want
Let us follow the lights in the sky and hope it's just some friendly fire

What has been done
Can never be undone
What have we done
As our wars burn like the sun
Track Name: Lights & Lovers
Solar flares and their repairs have made it hard to see beyond the whole
If Complicated and understated was the goal then I say I say good job
Loosen up just a bit, just a little bit..don't hold on so tight don't fight it
The changes we face... We'll become better patrons, better brothers, better lovers, and better men
Dim the lights down over every good idea
Put a strangle hold on your own neck
Who cares what they say what they feel what they believe will make you whole again
Piece by piece we'll rebuild, we'll acquire all the parts and begin from the start again
Loosen up, just a bit, just a little bit... don't hold on so tight don't fight it
The plagues that we face... We'll become better patrons, better brothers, better lovers, and better men
Dim the lights down over all you know
Could you please tell me why it's so hard to breath
Track Name: Elixir Fix
One day One day we were fine
the next we're standing in line waiting for a cure
So tall So tall are these tides
That beg us to be so much more
You should have said You didn't know There is no cure for you here
But I'll tell you just what you want to hear
You could have saved So many lives There is no purity here
Money talks and bullshit pays for it all
Keep rowing your boat. Stand on your toes.
What cost do we place on a life?
When put against ...all they've got to lose
Our belts have become a little tight
While our wallets fight the good fight
Keep rowing your boat. Stand on your toes
And maybe this time you will not sink
Track Name: The Cold War
Suckers and Saints with blue and red paint
Color our worlds state by state
As long as we sleep, as long as you dont speak
Opting to live in ignorant peace
Hold on to your swords and sharpen some more
It looks like this could mean WAR...
between you and I
between earth and sky
between left and right
between you and I
What's left of you and I?
Hunger from defeat, while all you can eat
Still has it's place on the winners side
It's all you can drink as long as you don't think
That there is anything in common...
between you and I
between earth and sky
between left and right
between you and I
The grass is always greener on that other side

It's always greener on that other side, the other side
Tend to your garden please don't let it die
It always easy on that other side, the other side
Defend your garden please don't let it die
