about

Hi, me again! I know, know, i know...
Covid hit and then came lockdown which has been a tough but necessary new norm. As a musician (artist, writer or any kind of creative person - you know who you are) we either give up, or we use it. I made this record as a part of challenges from other creative friends and my own self drive. Im still trying to show up for life everyday and the people i respect are doing the very same.
Quarantine Vol:2 will no doubt follow shortly and sadly probably more volumes as we navigate this new and tough time.
My friends helped me make this a reaiity, taking on roles that they might have otherwise shunned and who could blame them?

Sally Hayes' collages grabbed my attention immediately from the first time i saw them (God bless the internet - not-always, but this time for sure) The fact that she agreed to do the cover and actually requested the lyrics before committing is just so incredible. I love the artwork and i love making music. These songs are infected with Covid-19 and may or may not survive but they are definately here for now.
Please consider actually purchasing (like spending cash money, money cash) on this collection for as much as you are comfortable spending (I've never said that before) but it's tough times in the world of making things up
Thank you.

"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: The Heart Is A Junkyard
Everything breaks down
Just give it a little time
That thing you love so much
Is just gonna unwind
Fall into little pieces
End up on that pile
You know that pile of stuff you loved so much
But forgot about with time

TEverything’s built to break
Nothings built to last
Time will tear it all down
And time moves so fast
It’s in the DNA of every beat and every break
As sure as a heart knows how to love
It sure knows how to ache
And you couldn’t give that shit away
You better rent some space
And fill it with all those things
You swore could never be replaced

The heart is a junkyard

Everything breaks down
Everything falls apart
The glass hits the ground
The beat leaves the heart
The bumble leaves the bee
The world fall into the sea
Im left picking up the pieces
Of who I used to be

But pain is pain
And our pain is not the same
My pain might not be your pain
But it cannot be exchanged
There’s no return
You can’t build a fire for to burn
All the things you learned
From your pain
You couldn’t give it all away
You better rent some space
Fill it full of all those things
You swore you just couldn’t be replaced

The heart is a junkyard
Track Name: Bands Of Silver
Bands of silver and an endless road
I told you, forever
You came to me didnt want my love
You lightened your feather
Your eyes are colder than the wind that blows
From the river, forever
Forever in my world, my world, my world x2

Bands of silver but you dont want love
I told you id be here
Sell me over for the right to be wait
I need it, I want it
Here in my heart,
My dreams they go back to the fire
My hearts still hoping for desire
My words they follow me like honey in the mouth
Of a bird that dont know how to cry

Bands of silver and they don't cost nothing
But twenty two dollars
Words of sorrow and a cry of love
I want you, I need you
Chains are broken for the dryest Lily In the bible
I want you
Oh hearts like candles, mining for love
And flicker only for the call
I hold you lightly in the arms
Of a coming storm
Track Name: Love Love Love
Love Love Love

Well I saw you shaking
Heard your tiny heart just breaking
Like a bird just waiting for the storm
To pass

Oh that rolling thunder
Boy she really did a number on you
You never thought that it would hit you
Like that

Oh Love, Love, Love, Love
I guess its something you just dont get over
Yeah, Love, Love, Love, Love
I guess its something you just cant let go.
Track Name: Garden
Did you grow a garden in the pocket of your blue jeans
Just to keep the devil from pulling on your chain
When your hands were idle did you hear him whisper your name
So you grew yourself a garden in the pocket of your blue jeans

Did you find something to pull you through these dark days
Something to keep your spirits clean
Green fingers not needed this tine of year
You grew yourself a garden in the pocket of your blue jeans

Seems like lately
Everybody’s going crazy
You grew yourself a field of daisies
And you take them everywhere you go

Didn’t need no blue sky
Rain clouds or sunshine
There’s never been a better time
To watch your garden grow

Did you grow a garden in the pocket of your blue jeans
Just to keep the devil from knocking on your door
There’s a part of you still aching to be back in that bad scene
Instead, you grew yourself a garden in the pocket of your blue jeans
Track Name: A Job For Life
All of my life
Digging holes
I work construction
Job’s on hold
I found work
Out on the island
Digging graves
The bodies were piling

Steady work
Pay’s alright
Dig all day
Bury at night
Don't think too much
It’ll drive you insane
Tell myself
I'm just a link in the chain

Don't you even get me started
This job, is not for the faint hearted
Don’t you even start
This job, is not for the faint of heart

Somebody's job
Putting names on the toe-tags
Somebody's job
Bodies in body bags
Someone's job
To zip it up
A couple more
Dump the bodies on the truck
And another to drive
His buddy’s by his side
Full time delivery
Day and night

Don't you even get me started
This job, is not for the faint hearted
Don’t you even start
This job, is not for the faint of heart

Short term
Part time
That's what I thought
But I got a job for life
Track Name: Oh Gio Gio
What the fuck am I doing still here
Drinking beer after beer after beer after beer
The bathroom mirror sees it all so clear
I’ve been sitting in this spot every night this year
Alone and too old to even hold the attention of this German cougar
It’s Thursday night so Daniels out of site
He’s dragging his ass down at the Baracuda
Spinning around in his party dress
Singing and dancing like a Xmas princess
Go on then Noah I’ll have just one more
And maybe Alex csn show me the door
And then oh Gio Gio oh Gio Gio send me home x2
In a bodybag
This is becoming such a drag
Best times I ever had

Since Robin and Lauren disappeared
It’s been like “no girls allowed in here”
I catch Riley at the end of her shift
And there’s a new girl but I don’t know who she is
Maybe Whitney? Or Britney?
We spoke once but she’s yet to drink with me
And no one here has hushed me or used a finger to shush me
Or done that hand thing you know the one
They think is going to crush me
So fuck it Noah
I’ll have just one more
And maybe it’s Jessi’s turn to show me door
And then oh Gio Gio oh Gio Gio send me home x2
In a bodybag
This is becoming such a drag
Best times I ever had
