lyrics

"Bronze Boys"

The flock painted themselves black
so we hung in the back, our true colors were showing.
Don't let em see your white wool,
the room's full of alpha wolves in underdogs' clothing.
When they called, "All hands on deck!"
we were down in the cabin drinking ourselves to death.
Cursing the captain,
cursed to remember the way things actually happened.

No parades, no accolades
for the guy who was also there, but just out of the frame.
I'm not on the slide, I'm the jaded eye
at the other end of the microscope while my partner wins the Nobel Prize.

I've got stiffer drinks lined up to chase this bourbon
like it stole government secrets. In a black fucking suburban.
I'm the ghost who walks back home to sip spirits all alone
til the thoughts inside my skull change color: jade, silver, then gold.

Times have changed, it's a new Golden Age.
I'm more inspired by my peers then by my heroes these days.
They're at the top of the mountain, I'm still pushing this god-damn rock.
I'll be at the summit by sunset, and back at the bottom by dawn.

No parades, no accolades
when your teammates have gold medals and you're struggling for third place.
I don't have the best time on the track,
but I'm having the best time just taking my laps.
And if i get to do the things that I've done,
then it's ok that bronze is all that I won.

about

Moonraker Santa Clarita, California

Its just like the story of the grasshopper and the octopus. All year long the grasshopper kept burying acorns for winter while the octopus mooched off his girlfriend and watched TV. Then the winter came, and the grasshopper died, and the octopus ate all his acorns and also he got a racecar. Is any of this getting through to you? Moonraker is a punk band from southern California ... more
