The Trouble
'Pharaoh's Eye's'
Copyright 2015
Marc Jeffares

Pharaoh's eyes.
The old world meets the new world in her sight.
I can't begin to fight the fire that burns the phoenix in my mind.

The world has gone mad, there's chaos in the streets.
The iron will is wild with its darkest memory.
The heart of Spring beats with her decree
Bring everything to the people, but bring the people to me.

She don't play games; she suffers not charlatans and rakes.
She'll tell you right away, a bad man is only as good as his best mistake.

She's got me grinning at the gallows.
She knows that I can't wait to take back what my dark past took and turn it into everything.
She stakes her claim on the ancient ruins of my dreams.
Bring everything to the people, but bring the people to me.

The wings of love are covered in the dust of the butterfly.
The softest touch can send you down to the cold, cold ground for life. The boughs of hope are swollen from a southern gothic rain.
The dogwood flowers are dancing with demons in the cane.
A banshee voice wails your tormentor's name.
Bring everything to the people, but bring the people to me.

Her pharaoh's eyes find the universe in your gaze.
They see through your disguise.
Your shell's about to break.

You'd better pray she can give and you can take
Night and day, you won't let life get in the way.
Pharaoh’s eyes have found you; they're fixed upon your face.
They're about to burn right through you, and oh, you just can't wait. Burning dust is rising from your fate.
Bring everything to the people, but bring the people to me.

about

The Trouble Eureka, California

Love, indeed, rules the world; and as Northern California rock group The Trouble muses in their debut album, sometimes love rules the world with an iron fist.

Behind the redwood curtain of the Pacific Northwest, the band writes and records in a converted Victorian era carriage house, communing with familiar ghosts of Americana.
