The Year In Tears ~~~ In the still, in the dark I hear things falling apart In every corner Of my humble abode I'll just lie awake and worry Till my life can chime no more Any fool can be happy Or so I'm told Last night I heard the sirens Just over the blue trash hills O'er the idiotic barking From dog to dog to dog I'm a soul without a landlord Can't you hear me weep and moan? O'er the moors, up through the floorboards Crying, 'bring my body home' All these calls to the cavalry Might fall upon deaf ears It only seems like a lifetime The year in tears The year in tears Thunder rolling in the darkness Heavy stars are hanging low To the sound of crumbling mortar Oh the walls of Jericho The deal goes down underground Oblivion, thy will be done By and by, I'll see your devil And raise you one Oh, the big chief couldn't be reached In his hall of drunken mirrors It only seemed like a lifetime The year in tears The year in tears © 2019, Scott Hrabko (ASCAP)
Good For Awhile ~~~ You've got rooms in your house You don't even know about And every idle thing You just had to have And it's hard to believe You've got no room for doubt Now that it's all Up for grabs There's a chill in the air From a previous life It was good for awhile It was paradise By the basketball goal Out behind the junior high Mean old black dog Where the sad kids got high Fast forward, rewind Got no sense of time They're going to worry Put it out of your mind Out of your mind Look what you've done Drifted away So far from this life You don't even know your own name Or night from day There's a chill in the air From a previous life It was good for awhile © 2019, Scott Hrabko

Sometimes ~~~ Well, it's hardly a jolt From a nine volt revolt Down where the dust dogies run I'm looking for my only consolation In the sawdust of a song I'm blurry now But I won't be blurry long A phantom in pajamas in the basement Mixing up the metaphors Ridiculous dreams and deleted scenes On the cutting room floor And I've been down so long You'd think it was the floor I adore And I just want to feel good I just want to feel good I just want to feel good Sometimes Sometimes Stay at home, vagabond Sing along to my song of love in vain Hear the sound of the world moving on And I ain't on that train No, I ain't on that train I ain't on that train Hysterical sparrows From deep in the harrows Scatter like windblown debris They duckin' a hail Of rock salt and nails And those bad, old memories Memories - Why don't you let me be? 'Cause I just want to feel good I just want to feel good I just want to feel good Sometimes Sometimes © 2019, Scott Hrabko
Borrowed Guitar ~~~ A mentholated moon Over Baton Rouge Shining down on me I slept like a baby made of granite Under a Sycamore tree Oh, the happiest fool on the planet - That'd be me A cigarette vigil From dusk till dawn California flags unfurl Through eyes last static Mama, turn me on My little marijuana sunshine girl Sunshine girl Turn on your mockingbird charm While the afternoon collapses In caresses in your heavenly arms Superstardust on the sidewalk Of that long gone boulevard Ice cold singers And old late finger Falling in love Falling in love With a borrowed guitar Well, I get the pie One crumb at a time Then it's back to the anthill again I never stop to wonder What the hell it all means Maybe just a means to an end A means to and end But what end? You know a certain line of question Gonna send you right around the bend Cigarette butts From the balcony No, they are not shooting stars And old magpie can't trust his eyes Falling in love Falling in love Don't be falling in love With a borrowed guitar © 2019, Scott Hrabko

Scott Hrabko Kansas City, Missouri

Kansas City's Scott Hrabko is an independent singer/songwriter who has followed his own restless, shape-shifting muse since the town's late-80s indie rock scene.

“Hrabko’s rootsy songs are filled with trap doors, hidden nooks, and secret passageways. They’re like those dreams within comfortably familiar houses that suddenly have brand new rooms.”
Mike Warren - No Depression
