about

Ive been trying to record something as simple and direct as this album forever but there are always a million choices and the studio can turn you into a kid in a candy store. Doing nothing is often the hardest choice, well this time i did nothing except sing and try not to think too much.
This is pretty much what ill be singing the next time you see me live or if you invite me to sing for my supper in your kitchen, so please consider doing just that. I hope you enjoy this collection of new songs, older revisited and traditional songs as much as i enjoyed singing them.
Thanks to Brandon Wilde at Studio 76 in Brooklyn NYC for making recording such an effortless joy, and also thanks to Anthony Mulcahy (AKA "some random Irish man") for taking the photos and for tirelessly supporting live music all over the world.

I even included the lyrics with this one.

Warren Malone New York, New York

"Warren Malone has created an absolutely amazing album.“And The Ants Ate The Bee” never sounds the same twice/absolutely spellbinding/each listen feels fresh and different/The album is like a audio kaleidoscope/And then there’s that voice…an entirely unique instrument that sounds like a slightly androgynous soul singer/this album deserves repeated spins."

Track Name: Someone's Crying In The Night Again
Someones Crying In The Night Again

The echoes in the canyon
That’s just the sound of my words
Bouncing off the walls like hot house birds
Trying to get in trying to get out
Going crazy wondering what its all about

And there are Nocturnal shark toothed fish in your tears
They’ve been around for millions of years
And they sting and they burn and they bite
And that’s why crying hurts more at night
They try to get in they try to get out
They’re going crazy wondering what its all about

Come now whisper in my ear
Speak low so your mama can’t hear
You say you’ve got something living in your blood
Something that’s just no good it’s no good
They try to get in they try to get out
They’re going crazy wondering what its all about

Stinging, burning, biting
Someone’s crying in the night again
Stinging, burning, biting
Someone’s crying in the night again

And those suicide bombers with their dynamite vests
Dying to get something off their chests
Im not my mamas brightest son
But ill bet you 10-1
That’ll get it done
They try to get in they try to get out
They’re going crazy wondering what its all about

And if you’re black, you get a bullet in the back
And if you’re brown, they’re gonna shoot you down
And if you’re white, they got you in their sights
Looks like the cops these days are just itching for a fight
They try to get in they try to get out
They’re going crazy wondering what its all about

Stinging, burning, biting
Someone’s crying in the night again
Stinging, burning, biting
Someone’s crying in the night again
There’s blood on the glass
Scarlet feathers in the grass
And the flowers that are growing inside
Continue to thrive
They tried to get in they tried to get out
And they died wondering what it’s all about
Track Name: C Train
C Train

Waited for the C train, it took me down town
I bought some guitar strings, a couple other little things
Had breakfast at the coffee shop, eggs were cold the waitress was hot
A fat tip for her skinny ass, you pay now for the things that pass
Went to the record store spent some money spent some more
$20 before I left my door, New York City aint a friend to the poor

It’s all just things to do and deep down we know it
Take your money throw it out the window
Let the new York City wind
Just blow it away

I aint got a T.V. I aint even got a radio
I read it in a magazine while my second cup of coffee was going down slow
There are people cutting babies from the belly of a dinosaur
They clean and salt and pack and jar leave history bleeding
On the fishing boat floor
And we all need longer arms
We keep reaching for something better
Everybody knows the grass is greener yeah, whatever

It’s all just things to do and deep down we know it
Take your dream throw it out the window
Let the New York City wind
Just blow it away

Big City wind blow my dreams
New York City I’m giving in
I’m feeling alive and your skies
Are big enough to hold all of the stars
That fell from my eyes
Turn ‘em back on and make them shine

Waiting for the C train, to take me home again
Construction on the underground ive got to catch the D
And take the long way round
But it’s all just things to do so I guess it don’t matter
If I get home by 2 O’clock or if I get home by 20 after

Take your dream throw it out the window
Let the big City wind
Just blow it away
Track Name: Water
Water (lyrics)

Just like water I am an only child
And I’ve been spilled so many times I’m hard to recognize
Oh my mother, she did her best by me
And she gave me a name that she thought would somehow
Set me free
So I learned to run, And I learned to fall
And to evaporate in the sun like was never here at all

chorus
Every time I fall I feel nothing
When I fall down I feel nothing at all
Every time I run I feel nothing
When I run from you I’ll feel nothing at all
Cos I’ve learned to live with my lies

I met a woman, and of course I thought I could do better
So I loved her and then I left her
She said “Water, you’re not much of a giver
Running in and out of peoples lives like a river”
I said “ill be gone before the morning comes
So you don’t have to worry about me wanting your sister
Cos I’ve already kissed her, goodbye, Goodbye’

Every time I run I feel nothing
Every time I fall I feel nothing
When I fall down I feel nothing at all
Every time I run I feel nothing
When I run from you I’ll feel nothing at all
Cos I’ve learned to live with my lies

Water oh running water x2

But ill never leave you I said Ill always be with you
Either falling from the sky or falling from your eye
Ill always be with you

Every time I fall I feel nothing
When I fall down I feel nothing at all
Every time I run I feel nothing
When I run from you I’ll feel nothing at all
Cos I’ve learned to live with my lies
Track Name: Home
Home

You’ll never know the way that I trembled darling
‘The night that I came here and scattered my crumbs in your garden
The Joy I found, I found in this place
The joy I found I found in this dark and lonely space
With one star shining to light the road
And I prayed for birds cos I didn’t want to go home

And the ants ate the bee in the dark where the shadows were fading
There was nothing sweet about the way that my world was changing
And the joy I found I found in this place
The joy I found I found in this dark and lonely space
With one star shining as bright as the blistering sun
And the birds I prayed would come came
One by one by one by one by one
I didn’t want to go home

And the joy I found I found in this place
The joy I found I found in this dark and lonely space
With one star shining to light the way
And the darkest birds decend
The birds of song and the birds of prey
I didn’t want to go home
Track Name: The Forgotten War
The Forgotten War

Oh Maria bring the bucket bring the mop
There’s blood in the kitchen you’ve got to help me clean it up
Papa’s out cold and the bleeding wont stop
He cut of his trigger finger

Ever since Korea he aint been the same
I swear Maria theres a battle in his brain
He wakes up screaming every night it’s just the same
He cut off his trigger finger

Oh Maria what we gonna do?
When he wakes up when he come to
Better get a bottle better make it two
He cut off his trigger finger

He tried to hide in a bottle but we watched him go bad
What you supposed to do with all that pain
He tried to hide in a bottle bur we watched him go bad
He cut off his trigger finger

You remember the first time his unit deployed
He came home with a bad case of soldiers joy
Rode the mainline train goodbye soldier boy
Hello soldiers joy

Soldiers joy aint no weekend pass
It aint a couple hundred dollars for pills and grass
It aint a hard on for a piece of ass
That aint no soldiers joy

Soldiers joy is the hollow eyed shell
It’s the ghost of the man I knew so well
He’s just floating around like a ring looking for a bell
That’s soldiers joy

He tried to hide in a bottle but we watched him go bad
What you supposed to do with all that pain
He tried to hide in a bottle bur we watched him go bad
He cut off his trigger finger

Oh Maria bring the bucket bring the mop
Track Name: Joy (for Bianca)
Joy (for Bianca)

Do all the women talk bad about you
In the town in which you now live?
I remember all the girls used to hate you
When we were a little more than kids

You were so Beautiful, easy
Just like a boy, just like a boy
And all of those small town girls
Were jealous of your joy

Even I had girlfriends who couldn’t stand you
They’d just sit around all day
And whine and moan and bitch about you
And all their boyfriends just sat in silence
Afraid to say anything
Incase you could see it in their eyes

They thought you were Beautiful, easy
Just like a boy, just like a boy
And all of those small town girls
Were jealous of your joy

You were always the one to drive the boys home
Get the boys stoned
And all of us boys just wanted to get you alone
We didn’t stand a chance at true romance
But we’d settle for a kiss and maybe a hand down you pants
And maybe a smile
Oh God that smile

You were so Beautiful, easy
Just like a boy, just like a boy
And all of those small town girls
Were jealous of your joy

I’ll bet all the women have talked bad about you
In every town in every place you’ve ever live
Cos you were never afraid, no and you never apologized
Yeah you knew how to take
But you sure knew how to give

And you were so Beautiful, easy
Just like a boy, just like a boy
And all of those small town girls
Were jealous of your joy
Track Name: Whole Life Blues
Whole Life Blues

Daddy was a singer daddy was a drunk
Just a drunken singer
He was murdered in a flop house broke and drunk
Now he’s broke and drunk forever
I never heard my mother sing a note
Well maybe once when she was cooking
A bum like my daddy got so lucky once
Cos she was so good looking

She took a nail, she hit it with a hammer
There it is in the wall and it’ll be there forever
You can hand your favorite photograph
Hand your favorite cup
Take a trip through what’s come to pass
Drink it up

My mothers brother met my father when they were in prison
When he got out he gave his sister a call
He introduced them
It was nineteen sixty something
And everything was upside down
And jailbirds with pretty words
Could melt a young girls heart down

He took a nail, hit it with a hammer
There it is in the wall it’ll be there forever
Grabbed his jacket, put on his walking shoes
Was last seen 6ft under
Singing the “I wasted my whole life blues”

The coldest heart that love has ever known
Passed itself off as a fire burning out of control
How are you supposed to know
If the love you give to the one you’re with
Is gonna be allowed to grow

He took a nail, hit it with a hammer
There it is in the wall it’ll be there forever
Grabbed his jacket, put on his walking shoes
Was last seen 6ft under
Singing the “I wasted my whole life blues”

Daddy was a singer daddy was a drunk
He was murdered in a flop house broke and drunk
Now he’s broke and drunk forever.
Track Name: Swing Low
Swing Low

Down in the lowland the lowland low
Hiding away from the rain and snow
I watch the sun go down I sing “The Death of Queen Jane”
Even the little turtle dove in the pines
Is crying your name

It was a bright and a sunny summers day
Last time I saw you walking away
I never dreamed dear id never see your face again
I’d never taste your kiss I’d never feel the touch of your skin

Swing low, swing low sweet chariot and take me home
I’d rather die than live alone
You can bury these dry bones in the lowland low

Spring into summer, Summer to fall
Fall into winter the seasons just crawl
Without you dear I got nothing at all
I sing “The Death of Queen Jane”
While I wait for the hammer to fall

Swing low, swing low sweet chariot and take me home
I’d rather die than live alone
You can bury these dry bones in the lowland low
Track Name: Lost In The Desert
Lost In the Desert

Weather is on the way
And the desert sky is blue and green and gray
Shadows are long at the end of the day
Im counting every grain of sand
Searching for the ocean
Somebody told me
I’d find water out here

Out here in the desert
I’m small in the desert
I’m lost in the desert
But my shadow stands tall

What about you my friend
Are you ever going back again
Or are you just a counter like me?
Did the city bite too hard
Were you sick and tired of searching for stars?
They’re here by the million
You can count them all

You count stars in the desert
Heal your scars in the desert
Plant you feet in the desert
And watch your shadow grow tall

We could line a row of chairs
Make believe we’re waiting on some friends
And cry it’s a shame, they never came
But they’d never understand
Counting stars or grains of sand
Searching for water
In a place where the rain don’t even fall

I found peace I the desert
Heard my heartbeat in the desert
I plant my feet in the desert
And I watch my shadow grow tall
I count stars in the desert
And grains of sand in the desert
I search for water in the desert
A place where the rain don’t even fall
Track Name: The Hurting
The Hurting

Every song on the radio every show on the T.V. is about me
I can’t listen cos I fall apart I cant look cos it breaks my heart
Someone’s doing something bad to someone
And someone’s just hurting

I sang about love before
I guess I didn’t know what I was taking about
Cos now I got a pain and I can’t cut out
The hurting

I cried for three weeks straight
I couldn’t eat for seven days
I couldn’t breath, my heart was drowning itself
Inside of it’s own cage
I poured tears into ears down the phone
To anyone who was home
And I prayed those tears would never end
Cos I couldn’t bear to be alone
With the hurting

Oh someone’s doing something bad
To someone, somewhere
And someone’s
Just hurting

I can’t get it out of my head it’s the only thing I’m thinking about
Your sticky tongues your eager hand oh your filthy mouth
But I’ll carry the blame im throwing up my hands
I pushed and I pushed til something gave
Now I’m forever damned
With the hurting

Oh someone’s doing something bad
To someone, somewhere
And someone’s
Just hurting
