about

High Pony Brooklyn, New York

High Pony
Five meandering souls stumbled into an ocean of sound. The waves: Loud, screechy, girthy. Outlook: Unhinged, squirrely, lost, yet unafraid. Style: Alternative? Eh. Poppy? Hmn. Both? Maybe. Two voices, two guitars, 88 keys, one drum kit, broken cymbals included. The takeoff was smooth. Start looking up. ... more

Track Name: Off to kill myself
Off to Kill Myself

I quit everything
I still feel like shit
I see all the people dancing
it don't look fun to me
standing in the shadows so long
you'll never
you'll never see me
I wish you would
afraid to stop
being afraid
love's so easy
in my dreams

Off to see my baby
off to kill myself
nice and
slow
these awful feelings
coming back
awful feelings
coming back

we're standing on earth quaking ground
think I like it better when you're on my
my high
just fall into me
I think I like it better when we're
killing time
no one cares about their neighbor no more
hope you know you're free to stick around my
pressure gets
greater then you're dead
give 'em all we got I
believe in you

death always comes to soon
I already miss you
It'll never be
the way you want
just dumb it down
where you gotta go to
to do what you love
who you gonna share it all with?
it's getting later and no clearer
I think of you
still my heart

Off to see my baby
off to kill myself
nice and
slow
these awful feelings
coming back
awful feelings
coming back

we're standing on earth quaking ground
I think I like it better when you blow my
my I'd love to
beautiful messy love
lost lives
souls still mourning
think I like it better when you're on my
you brought me from the shadows let's get married
sing another tune in the
light with you
Track Name: Drooling with rage
Drooling with rage

I'm in the city can't move
all this stress
almighty dollar
on the throne
coming for our culture
and our homes
our souls don't rule
anymore

a generation
lacking empathy
expecting
everything
watching
a system breaking down
ennui
drooling with rage

we build their homes
then they price us out
we serve their drinks
and live off their tips
it makes me sick
to be part of this
I want it back

it's not enough
just to have it all
got our souls crushed
a lesson
for posterity
careful
how you dream

I hope I'm around
to watch them
swallow their guns
when it's too late
to give it back
Track Name: Lighter Moment
Lighter Moment

Dead end after
dead end
I have lost my smile
got to talking
my heart started racing
blue smile
my leg starts shaking
you gave me a light
I watched it go out
now I'm a dead end

Every day
I feel this weight
grow inside of me
it makes it hard
to love or be
good to anything

The problem is you found a place
where you'd love love to go and die
the moment's gone and you can't
move on
close my eyes in this
London City
Grandma tells a story
I know
where I'm going

Can't conceal this horror show
stars greet you like a demon
I would love to ask for help
but the world won't wait for me

Just don't leave us
Heavy
Stuck inside my
Lighter Moment
for good
It's a battle
always thirsty
it's a battle and I won't
Fight this feeling when I
Want to
close my eyes and
stay here
Gone
Track Name: You're Insane
You're Insane

There are cracks in my helmet
there are marks on your feet
car ahead in the darkness
running it in through the streets
we marched on to the subway
once more unto the breach
my dear friends I will miss them
hello my family

All the wrong ways
to the right place
I'm so glad I ran into you
I've been searching for you
I would crawl the BQE
just to bring you closer to me
but I got marks upon my teeth
and you make noises when you

sleep through siren songs
this city block feels long

our last time at the Marshal's
when I paid all my fees
you said this is an art form
then we headed out east
well I tend to agree
dealing with the police
yes I am the car's owner
but it feels like a lease

All the places we used to go
they've been knocked down
the rubble shows
the rubble shows where it went through
in a couple of days
they'll be built brand new
all the people we used to meet
just shadow and light on a hung up sheet
sweet memories
but we gotta eat
and I'd do anything
when we get home
we will both know
dead leaves to the canopy
so I got shotgun
you can
take the wheel
I'm ready

to drag the breakdown lane
flee the human stain
peal out in the rain
and drag that breakdown lane

you're insane
what's your name?

you're insane
what's your name?
a house
a home
a thunder dome
millions enter
no one leaves this
data center
glass and steal

the roads and rails
its arteries
we are the cells
we are the cells
let's break the skin
let's make it bleed
let's leave this jeweled
and dead body
Track Name: Silly Ball
Silly Ball

All of my friends
I do believe in them
all of my friends
I'll soon be needing them
I stand in awe of her
desultory glory
it breaks my heart to see you down
Down

Dancin' dizzy with my girl
sad, sweet, and laughin by myself
Dancin' dizzy with my girl
sad, sweet, and laughin by myself
Never all the time
Never all the time

It's all a silly ball
of nothingness
bouncing back and forth through
it's all a silly ball
of nothingness
bouncing back and forth through
you try so hard to make it matter
knowing all along that nothing matters
you try so hard
deign to matter
you only matter
if you matter to
someone else

Dancin' dizzy with my girl
sad, sweet, and laughin by myself
Dancin' dizzy with my girl
sad, sweet, and laughin by myself
Never all the time
Never all the time

The city's burning down
I'm going out tonight
I told you I'd be there
I'll be there

The city's burning down
I'm going out tonight
I told you I'd be there
I'll be there
Track Name: Dolphins Cry
Dolphins Cry

Can't remember when the test began
I sign my name
I'm not an animal
Take care of the ones you love
that's all
that's all

Weak people wear you down
some situations can't be
worked out
and it's a long way down
when you're always looking up

No one likes the way this ends
searching for God
in the face of death
and there's no one around
empty flower vase
dirty water
I'm not going out like that
I'm not going out like that
we're so much better now
we're so much better
better now

Thank you for loving me
you showed me how to live
You say you like this
I think you're lying
It's been one hell of a ride
don't you get off now
Dolphins cry
just like you

I'm not the animal
I'm the animal
I'm not the animal
I'm the animal
we've got so much to prove
trembling knees stand to prove
I love you so much better now
I love you so much
better now
Track Name: Nothing Here Is Mine
Nothing Here Is Mine

I've been working hard to find
nothing here
is really mine
being drowned by tomorrow
as today
turns away

Trying to be
so tiring
I think I'll lay
down right here

All the sadness
you can not hide
I'm afraid
of those eyes
Always planning
for tomorrow
cuz you can't stand
here right now

Memories
are all that you have
to make you feel
good anymore

Diving backwards
into the sea
your smile
haunting me still
Let me die
Slow

On the phone
with my Mom
how'd we get so far away
Staring at that road where you were born
and you don't recognize it no more
it's hurting more and more and more and

No more calm
remember how we used to
Dream

I dig myself
into the ground
when my soul is feeling dirty
I met you
in the tunnels
of these darkest times
where lovers go
to believe
only beauty
in the truth
it's got to be
More than a roof
it's Not
Good enough
for me
Only beauty
in the truth
it's got to be
More than a
Roof

Dig in dirt
for the ones who know
Nothing here
is really
Ours
at all
No fear
Track Name: Singin' Through Your Hell
Singin' Through Your Hell

You sing the Gospel to me
You're sleeping in these streets
Fluorescent God Light Bulb
Weighing heavy
on your soul

Take my hand through Hell
Sister Mercy
Where'd you go?
I got the Acid
on my Tongue
Did you ever Know your name?

The Devil catches up
in between your Heavenly dreams
as you circle the drain
so far from the Ocean

Singin' Through Your Hell
Sister Mercy
We Need You Now
Draggin' through these dreams
I'm so Proud of Your Name

True Friend
In a fair weather world
True Friend
in a fair weather world
So pretty
So long
So pretty
So long

True Friend
In a fair weather world
True Friend
In a fair weather world
So pretty
So long
So pretty
So long
as it
Fades away
