lyrics

Marionette G G# A

A A/Ab A/G A/Gb
We wait for light but behold darkness
D B7
In a demon-haunted world does it matter what is true
E E/D E/Db Esus B7
Where would we start?
A A/Ab A/G A/Gb
That kind of light is the light that burns me out
D B7
And a mountain of this guilt is surely tantamount
E E/D E/Db Esus B7
To the heart
D E A/A7
But is that you marionette?
D E D/A A E7
Is that you, marionette
A A/Ab A/G A/Gb
Is it such a crime to know what you say
D/A
To the ears that you’re around
B7
The ideas you forge into sound
E E/D E/Db Esus B7
All of the time, all of the time
D E A A7
But is that you marionette?
D E D/A A E7
Is that you, marionette
Gbm E
And though the roads not long
D A
And soon we will be gone
B7 E/Edom/E7
Right now, we can belong
A A/Ab A/G A/Gb
I’d give it all, I’d give it all to you
D/A A
If you could turn around and give it back to me too
A A/Ab A/G A/Gb D/A A
I’d give it all, I’d give it all to you but if Marionette is present then we’re through

about

Joel Magid Portland, Oregon

Joel Magid's new album Hyenas is an absorbing collection of psych-pop and homegrown melody, with echoes of the phantasmagoric '60s, and a slice of punk-rock DIY-ness for good measure. "Snakes, I Love You" is one of the album's more upbeat numbers, a grimy but catchy slice of basement-prom pop. It's one of Hyenas' many highlights. -Ned Lannamann
