about

DAMIEN DONE

DAMIEN DONE is the nom de plume of Damien Moyal, best known as frontman of iconic 90s hardcore punk bands As Friends Rust.

Here, Moyal takes a sharp and decided turn from the angst of his past, instead crooning unnerving, voyeuristic tales over bleak numbers that at once touch on the doom and drawl of swampy grunge and the cold, blue sneer of dark 80s pop and post-punk.

Track Name: The Freeze
Won’t you come and freeze
In the shadows of my love?
I know it’s hard to breathe
In the shadows of my love
Believer be deceived
In the shadows of my love
And I know it’s hard to breathe
In the shadows of my love
Track Name: Roof Access
She come in the night
Watching him sleep
And maybe she’ll find
Something to keep
She’s back in her apartment
Before her tea is steeped
Back in her flat
Before the tea’s steeped

Roof access

She just wanna watch
Watch as he dream
She don’t mean no harm
She don’t mean a thing
Back on her couch
Before the commercial break ends
Third time tonight
And she’ll do it again

Roof access

She just wants to watch him sleep
Track Name: When You Left Home
When you left your home
You saw that life was good
And everybody knew what to do, but you

They say the sum of the parts
Greater than the whole
You settle into a groove, and then you go

Everybody knew what to do, but you

The sum of the parts
Greater than the whole
Settle into a groove, then go
Track Name: The Lord Fox
At night he comes alive
But you might not survive
Got this little pill to pull you through
I got a little pill to take you
And Lord knows where he been
He come home soaked in gin
Got this little pill to pull you through
Got this little pill to take you

The way that you feel now
You can’t take much more
Something’s got to give

Oh, he’s taking off again
He won’t say where or when
Drop this little pill into his flask
Drop this little pill into him
You never could keep him home
So weapons brought to bear
Now that little pill inside his flask
Now that little pill’s inside him

The way that you feel now
You can’t take much more
Something’s got to give
So put him on the floor
Your momma warned you, girl
You know how these boys are
He made it to his car
But never made it to the bar

Oh, you should have just stayed at home
But you always had to go and roam
From your pretty little wife at home
Yeah, your pretty little life at home
Track Name: Curious Thing
I’m with you, my love
But some small darkness comes between
Everything
And it’s real, this love
But still some darkness makes me fiend
For terrible things

I know you’ve been following me

Don’t doubt my heart
It may be black, but don’t you know it beats for you
And only you
Come along, my love
If you’re so curious about the things I do
Let me show you

I know you’ve been following me

I’m with you, my love
But some small darkness makes me fiend
For terrible things

I know you’ve been following me
Track Name: Things Are Going Great (Just You Wait)
Aim for the light, aim for the sweetness
Aim for a life far away from mine
Should’ve listened to your girlfriends
You should have run

Don’t let me get ahold
Of your heart of gold

Hope you never wise up
Hope you never catch on
Hope you never see the good life
Outside these walls
Should’ve listened to your girlfriends
You should have run

Things are going great
But just you wait
Just you wait
Just you wait

Don’t let me get ahold
Of your heart of gold
Track Name: Angels Overlooking Him
Danny wrote his name and Erin’s
On the overpass, to stake his claim
On a girl from a world on the other side of town
Where they playing a different game

And Danny knew it was Erin’s parents
Who had the cops come warn him to stay away
But his ribs will heal, they’ll have to put him behind steel
Otherwise it ends today

She got angels looking over her
He got angels overlooking him

He said “The heart wants what the heart wants
And the heart don’t want you
If you ever come near my daughter again,
Lord, I’m telling you
You don’t wanna die tonight
But son, I think you might
Have angels overlooking you”

She got angels looking over her
He got angels overlooking him

She got a back yard made of water
He got a front yard filled with cars
She got a future so bright it’s crazy

Danny scratched his name and Erin’s
Into the cell wall, above his bed
You know he loves her just the same
Even if she never knew his name
Until he shot her daddy dead

She got angels looking over her
He got angels overlooking him
Track Name: Who's Gonna Believe You?
When the door kicks in
And the police draw
Their guns in the quiet of the night
Who’s gonna believe you?

Go ahead and call up the newspapers
Go on and take it to the top
You know the Law is a fickle friend
And who’s gonna believe you?

I’m the cold and rusty nail
Out here where the dust prevails
See, these lives are all for sale
They tried to pray the poor away
Then a fella like you come ‘round
Asking questions bout the lost and never found
You gonna leave it
You gonna leave it, or I’m gonna take it away

Who’s gonna believe you?

Why don’t you load up that trunk
And head toward I-94
Forget about what you seen here
Who’s gonna believe you?
Track Name: The Good Book
Old man said “Only read one book
In my whole life, only read one book
Left town once, that was all it took
Ran home to the good good book”

That old man, he got a spider in his brain
Bigger every day
He hope and pray and pray and pray
It grows, anyway
Old man said “Only had one son
He don’t believe, so I got my gun
I told him to leave, I don’t need no one
Just the good good book”

Old man said “Only read one book
My whole life, I only read one book
Left town once, that was all it took
Ran home to the good good book”
Track Name: Something On You
I’ve got something on you
Something witnessed from the view
Your wife and kids adore you
They don’t know what you do
I’ve got something on you

I’ve got something on you
I followed you to 9th and 22
You’re everybody’s favorite
Imagine if they knew
That something that I’ve got on you

I’ve got something on you
Not much, but it’ll do
A twelve second clip
Enough to prove it true
I’ve got something on you

You understand that I’ve got you
On a rope through which you cannot chew
Now there’s a little something
That I’d like you to do
I’ve got something on you
