about

Above the understated rhythms of drummer James Mclean (The Tropes, Junior Fiction), guitar and bass duties in Magpie are split between Jesse (Pioneers of Good Science, Ghost Like Beast) and Leish (Ghost Dick), who takes on most of the vocals, and tells all of the tales. There is lots to find here for such a young band: the 3 friends started jamming it out in James' band/backroom late 2016, and they quickly developed their own brand of loud garage punk rock, paired with witty banter.

Track Name: Space
What do you want from me, man?
You're asking for a little too much
What do you want from me, man?
Everything I do is for you, it's for you

I wanna go to the trappist system
I wanna live in outer space
I want go to the trappist system
Gotta go, gotta get away

What do they do in the Netherlands?
Socialism's working for them
What will they do with our underclass?
Move them on and hide them from view, and from you

I wanna go to the trappist system
I wanna live in outer space
I want go to the trappist system
Gotta go, gotta get away

I want to see a white dwarf
I want to know how it all ends
Will time stop and pass us by?
Or will we travel back in space and time?

Capitalistic, Economic, Apocalyptic, Sanctioned States
Track Name: Privilege
I walk down tree-lined streets
I'm not walking on no muddy reeds
Privilege Privilege
My body's rights are my own
It's my choice and mine alone
Privilege privilege
Education 101
My parents paid a tiny sum
Privilege Privilege
We know how to pay the bills
We're not worried about our next meals
Privilege, middle class privilege

What gives us
What gives us the right

I grew up with a roof on my head
I grew up with parent's that cared
Privilege Privilege
All my friends vote the Greens
All my friends know what trans means
Privilege Privilege
He walks home late at night
He's not worried about his shadow line
Privilege, male privilege
My lips are full and my skin is white
No one's questioning my god damn right to be here
To be here

What gives us
What gives us the right
What gives us the god damn right

We all have the right to be
Safe and not scared to dream
You call yourself family
Why can't you, why can't you see
Track Name: Don't Tell Me Stories
I've got nothing left to lose, and
You've got everything to fear, and
I want to take everything you say and throw it all away

Don't tell me it's easy, it's easy
You can't see what it's like for me, no
Don't tell me it's easy, it's easy
You can't see what it's like to be me

Nothing's black and white you see
And we're all raised with our prejudices, and
I am scared of everything, and
You keep checking your phone but nobody's calling
It's after three, you should be sleeping
But the words she said they're stuck in your head

Don't tell me it's easy, it's easy
You can't see what it's like for me, no
Don't tell me it's easy, it's easy
You can't see what it's like to be me

I can't take it, I can't take it
I can't take it, I can't take it anymore
Anymore
No I can't take it, I can't take it
Don't tell me my stories, don't tell
Don't tell me no don't tell me my stories
Track Name: Cooper
He's got style, he's got grace, he can make my body race
But I don't want him chasing after me
I don't want to be around it, I don't want to see you do it.
Why's there always something wrong with them.

I don't want to hear your stories, you don't get to say what's boring
What I do is only up to me.
No I won't clean it for you, I am not your fucking mother
Why's there always something wrong with them?

Yes I'll always be this selfish.
I like me more than you.
What the fuck is really wrong with me?
Someone broke me years ago and I can't seem to let it go,
What the fuck is really wrong with me?

I don't want to be
I don't want to be with anyone but you
Cooper Cooper
Track Name: Chasing Something
I'm chasing something, not sure what it is
Chasing something, in the back of my head
Chasing something, not sure what you said
Chase it away again

Everyday I wake up guilty
And everyday I fight down feelings
And Shannon tells me to relax but I can't help myself
Track Name: I Say Yes
I say yes and you say not now
I say go and you say turn around
This can't be on your terms only but I don't like to be left lonely

I'm not normal and I'm not sweet
I can't live inside of your dreams
I won't drive your sporty car
I won't pay your bourgeois mortgage

What's that what's that I see
Are you looking are you looking at me
What's that what's that I see
Don't look, don't look, don't touch me
Track Name: Mental Health
Press me like a flower between the sheets
I'll curl up and I'll dry in the heat
Read the spaces between the lines
The stories different in my mind

What did you say when you called my name
I couldn't see you through the Whitby haze
One kiss from you and she's falling deeper
Lucy's always falling deep

I'm outta my mind
I can't describe
This feeling inside
I'm outta my mind

Bless it be the tiny fruit
It bruises easy but it knows the truth
Nothing's real and nothing's permanent
Everything's just playing a part

So I could just lie in bed all day, hide from those feelings and I'll hide from the pain
Nothing's real and nothing's permanent
Everyone's just playing a part

I'm outta my mind
I can't describe
This feeling inside
I'm outta my mind

I don't want to be pretty or nice
Don't call me pretty or nice
