Mike Bankhead is a bassist and songwriter from the Dayton, Ohio area. His songs speak of depression, frustration, loss, and regret – all buoyed by hope. These themes are presented with crunchy guitar, occasional dissonance, and a love of hooks.
lazy rainy morning is where i think you want to be
static from the speakers and the droning on tv
feel the fires burn and the tables turn
and this will never go our way
back to back to back to back i say
i’ve got my athos, porthos, you could be my aramis
spread your wings and find a way to carry us
i’m no d’artagnan but i carry on
intrigue in the palace and a dagger in your heart
cardinal reservations because you don’t know where to start
fill the felon’s role and take your toll with sabre and épée
back to back to back to save the day
all for one and rattle me delirious
sands of time will find a way to bury us
when we’re dead and gone call the carrion
