about

Andy Macintyre Austin, Texas

“I think the thing that sets Andy apart from other musicians is the lack of fear to try new things and think outside the box...we think alike, as far as: knowing where you come from, where you want to take the music and having your own ideas about how you want to interpret. I think that’s what makes a truly great artist...a unique artist. I respect that.” -Gary Clark Jr. ... more

Track Name: Left Behind
Round 'n' round we go, where it stops ain't nobody really knows...
Just a face on a face, of a planet, that we're trying to erase.
(Brother) You gotta know; I see a fool in you!
(Mother) She won't wait till the day you break!
But you sure enough love to show enough grudge to the one's you held so close.
And if you spew enough hate, she dazzles and rapes you of a love... Left behind, awake with scarred-deep eyes of a "thin' dream'
Oh! You're left behind! You're left behind!
She's a master in the ways of fall-agent compromise.
Chew you up and spit you out, it's what she does, it's what she's all about!
(Brother) You gotta know; l see a fool in you!
(Mother) She won't wait till the day you break!
But you sure enough loved to show enough grudge to the one you held so close.
After you've spewn enough hate, then she'll dazzle and rape you of a love...
Left behind. You awake with scarred-deep eyes from a thin dream'
Oh! You're left behind! You're left behind! You're left behind! mm-yeah You're left behind, Yes you are. You're left behind, You're left behind. Yes you are.
Round 'n' round we go, where it stops ain't nobody really knows....
Track Name: Ruby
She gets drunk on a Friday night, yeah.
And I get stoned on a Tuesday night.
We talk love, we hide the lies.
Then we pass like two ships in the light...
I'm your little Ruby....
Turning sweet all the things that you say.
So make it stone when you call my name.
Beg or be; the sacrificed.
Wish could be all the things you see in me...
I'm your little ruby, I'm your little ruby, I'm your little ruby
You're my favorite, you're my favorite You're my favorite, you're my favorite You're my favorite, you're my favorite
Cuz l've known girls that say, "yeah...yeah..."
Beggars come and they'll turn you inside out now.
"Hey! GREAT SHOW!" Now you burn me alive...
I took a picture of a flower in the ground
Because I ain't got no more that can float around.
I'm your little ruby, I'm a little ruby, Yes, I'm a little ruby, ruby...
I'm your favorite. I'm your favorite. I'm your favorite. No, l'm your favorite. Meow, meow favorite. You're my favorite. I'll be your favorite. You're my favorite. Be my favorite. You're my favorite. I'm your favorite. Be my favorite. I'll be yours, if you're my favorite... Whoo-hoo...
Oh now, what's around? Everybody wants to hold their ground...
Oh now, what's around? Everybody wants to hold their ground...
Oh now, what's around? Everybody wants to hold their ground...
Oh now, what's around? Everybody wants to hold their ground...
BE YOUR LITTLE RUBY! BE YOUR LTTLE RUBY! BE YOUR LITTLE RUBY, RUBY, RUBY!
Track Name: Jailene
Jailene.
Take us deep into dark territory.
But please, don't let me go.
I'm losing control, oh...yeah?
Jailene. Jailene... Jailene.
Tell me all the things I've said, when I wasn't me.
Denialene at your worst, everytime.
I'm flush to a web of my own design.
Jailene Jailene.. J-Jailing of me... J-Jailene, loves me Jailene.
You must feel the things I've seen, are not really there.
And those pictures on my wall, with the faces that glare...
They want it all, the best of me, for them... J
ailene. Jailene... J-Jailling of me... J-Jailene, loves me...
Jailene Jailene... But I hide away as I only can.
And it makes me feel so lost that you can't understand.
I need you...maybe you don't see me?
Jailene. Jailene J-Jail ng of me... J-Jailene loves me Jail, Jailene of me!
Track Name: Bluebird I
Yellowed heart, scored from gold
Spoiled the man, to milk out the shame.
News operated fears. I said, don't give a damn.
A poison mind gives a precious hand.
"A bluebird lands' wished a prescient man.
"In somebody's arms...Ten more will descend..."
No! Get your bluebird out of my hand! Bluebird!
A bluebird it's out of my hands. Bluebird...
Frigid climate rattles my bones.
Bitter-sweet winds play in salt-crushed tones...
Death divides us, but don't let it define us.
So let the poison mind give a mindless you-know-what.
"A bluebird lands", wished a prescient man.
"in somebody's arms...Ten more will descend..."
Now get your bluebird out of my hand! Bluebird!
A bluebird is out of my hands.
Bluebird It's goin' down on my birth today (You're trippin')
Goin' down on my birth today (You're trippin')
Goin' down on my birth today (Keep on trippin')
Goin' down on my birth today... BRIDGE (INSTRUMENTAL)
Track Name: BluebirdII
(INSTRUMENTAL) "A bluebird lands", wished a prescient man.
"in somebody's arms...Ten more will descend..."
Now get your bluebird out of my hand! Bluebird!
(I don't give a shit if one lands!)
A bluebird is out of my hands Bluebird...
It's goin' down on my birth today (You're trippin')
Goin' down on my birth today (You're trippin')
Goin' down on my birth today (Keep on trippin')
Goin' down on my birth today...

Track Name: Deranged
By the way you hung up the phone in my ear,
I'd say now it's pretty clear, my dear.
Looking out the window past my face, through it all,
I realize you were lying all along.
And by the way I don't take blame for someone else's problems.
But I could tell that your mother sent you over here.
What are you gonna do when you realize the perfect chance,
has just blown you by? Blown you by, by, bye.
Could never trust you again...
Don't ever wanna see you again...
To never look at your face again...
You're so deranged. You're so deranged. You're so deranged. You're so deranged.
Apple core; nothing more, could ever drive me further away from you.
When you're coming around here begging for forgiveness.
And don't even think that 2 and 1 half months,
has been a long lonely time.
I've fallen before (tasted the ground).
Since we've been apart, it seems that you've been around.
You can tell your best friend that she's a lot of talk about other people's shit, but she sure doesn't even know herself. (Sure doesn't know herself.)
Could never trust you again...
Don't ever wanna see you again...
To never look at your face again...
You're so deranged. You're so deranged. You're so deranged. You're so deranged.
By the way you hung up the phone in my ear, I'd say now it's pretty clear, my dear.
Looking out the window past my face, through it all, realize you were lying to me all along.
And by the way don't take blame for someone else's problems.
Tell that to your mother, tell that to your mother...
Could never trust you again...
Don't ever wanna see you again...
To never look at your face again...
You're so deranged. You're so deranged. You're so deranged. You're so deranged.

Track Name: D'evil
I am a stranger here.
There's no need for fear.
I'll work for how you want. I work for you.
They just let him in as the town soothed and coddled him.
Acquired a place to stay.
He laid tracks all through the day.
Possessed an ease of charm.
His endless will so strong.
The kind mothers say is "smart."
The kindly killers killing art.
But he known D'evil thing, dumped by the ol Hot Springs. Dispassionate people wouldn't believe, "How could this man kill?!"
The kind mothers say is "smart."
The kindly killers state-of-the-art.
YOU'RE GONNA GIVE ME WHAT WANT! l'M GONNA GIVE YOU WHAT YOU NEED! AH, YOU KNOW WILL!
I'm a stranger here.
There's no need for fear.
I'll work for how I want. I'm gonna work for you...
And the winds started to change, As the doubts turned stars to rain. People bloodied one-by-one...
The kind mothers say is "smart."
The kindly killers killing art.
YOU'RE GONNA GIVE ME WHAT I WANT! l'M GONNA GIVE YOU WHAT YOU NEED!
Track Name: Other Side + Bonus Track
Black and white bathed in red,
Floodlight sunbeams for me.
All in all, "It's the best", they say, "when you're floating in a dream."
Light cuts the room, no offense to you,
or to the voices in my head.
In my own thoughts, no need to speak.
In a moment l'll be free...
I'm on the other side.
Gone just like a blink.
On the other side.
A lone soul at sea.
Faces a mess, sounds I see right beyond my door.
Can't prolong with these creeps on me, but they want just a little bit more.
She turned me on, I'm higher than I've gone.
You've got your questions, point to me.
I don't expect you to get it wrong, but a moment, you'll be free...
I'm on the other side.
Gone just like a blink.
On the other side.
A lone soul at sea.
I'm on the other side.
Gone just like a blink.
On the other side a lone soul at sea.
Pain...Pain...Pain
