about

Crooked Spies Calgary, Alberta

Left floating in a sea of fragile angst you sense a tipping point. You are witness to a short fuse burning. Feet submerged but your head is dry. To simply define Crooked Spies is difficult, but the feeling they instill from the whimsical lyricism and displays of ferocious elegance will leave you with the taste of new beginnings. A fresh take on rock n roll for the wandering soul.

Track Name: High Tide
The water it creeps and I'm beginning to weep for all of my kin
The water it creeps and it's getting so deep, it's over my head
But high tide, high tide, is when I ride
High tide, high tide, is when I ride

The wall closes in, I just continue to swim, waiting to drop in
But no fault of mine, I'm still casting my line, waiting for the time
High tide, high tide, is when I ride
High tide, high tide , is when I ride

The water it creeps and it's getting so deep, it's over my head
The water it creeps and it's getting so deep, it's over my head
High tide, high tide, is when I ride
High tide, high tide , is when I ride

High tide, high tide, is when I ride
Track Name: Man On Fire
Hold me, Hold me Tight
Don't Let me run into the wicked night
I'll be gone, by the morning light
Searching for something to keep me right

Well i'm a man, a man on fire
Watch me burn, watch me burn until this heart don't desire
Well i'm a man, a man on fire

Hold me, Hold me Tight
Don't Let me run into the wicked night
I'll be gone, by the morning light
Searching for something to keep me right

Well i'm a man, a man on fire
Watch me burn, watch me burn until this heart don't desire
Well i'm a man, a man on fire

I gave with two hands and all my will
you wanted more of me, more of me still
You're ruthless, stone cold
I gave every inch, every inch of my soul

Well i'm a man, a man on fire
Watch me burn, watch me burn until this heart don't desire
Well i'm a man, a man on fire
Yes i'm a man, a man on fire
Track Name: Mata Hari
Day by day and night by night
She will be there out of sight, just waiting
So seductive and so smooth
She will swiftly make her move, understated

But now, she's gone and I can't, carry on

Night by night and day by day
A crooked spy will make you sway, contemplating
So succinct and so sincere
she will shed a single tear, so engaging

But now, she's gone and I can't, carry on

There are spirits here, there are spirits here
There are spirits here, there are spirits here
There are spirits here, there are spirits here
There are spirits here, I feel her spirit here
Track Name: Brother
I'm a man on the run and i'm looking for answers
So swift with your judgement the morning after
This is how is goes
When you're on your own

A betrayal of the heart was only the start
I'll tell you the tale if you play your part
This is how it goes
For the debts you owe

Now were wanted, wanted for Treason
And love baby, love is the reason
Now were wanted, wanted for treason
And love baby, love is the reason
Love is the reason
It's killing season

Wrongfully accused for this crime I won't refute
But if I say to pull the trigger you had better shoot
This is how it goes
Revenge served cold

Now were wanted, wanted for Treason
And love baby, love is the reason
Now were wanted, wanted for treason
And love baby, love is the reason
Love is the reason
It's killing season

You're my brother, you're my brother
And we do this for each other
You're my brother, you're my brother
And we do this for each other
And we do this for each other
Track Name: Doomsday Blues
I woke up this morning, I could hardley believe my eyes
I woke up this morning, I could hardly believe my eyes
The whole world was burning black
People were running for their lives

So I looked out my window, and i'll tell you what I saw
Ya I looked out my window, and i'll tell you what I saw
The devil was hunting us down
And he is coming for us all, and he said

You're not good to your brother
You take this earth in vein
You cheat and you hurt and you lie and you steal and you still complain
So I have come to do what somebody must do
I have come to take back this earth before it is ruined by you

So don't try to fight it, When you know it's your time
Don't try to fight it, You ignore the warning signs
Theirs nothing left to be said, aint no need to apologize
I hope you've enjoyed what you've had but you had better say goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
Track Name: Your Man
I never thought I would see the day
When you don't say goodbye girl, no you just walk away
Standing here outside in the rain
I'm staring through the window and i'm feeling through the pain
Why don't you say i'm your man

I never thought I would hit rewind
Keep on playing the same songs and pretend that you're still mine
Can't you see what your trying to do to me
Your putting holes in my sunset when i'm trying to break free
Why don't you know i'm your man
Track Name: Hey Mama
Hey mama, I know what you need
But I've never met a women with so much greed
Hey mama, hey mama hey

Hey mama, I've seen you around
Messing with all the poor boys in this town
Hey mama, hey mama hey

You'd burn this whole place down
Just to wear the crown
Track Name: Where You'll Go
You hold, hold steady
It's just your aim that's to low
Shoot for the heart
Because only the heart could know

Just where you'll go (4x)

You can do it on your own (4x)

Put the past away
On so many broken days and start brand new
Burn this place down
And from the ashes we can start brand new
Show where you'll go

Just where you'll go (4x)

You can do it on your own (4x)
Track Name: Full Moon Rising
I'm impressionable at the best of times
A matador without his cape
Having trouble reading between the lines
Yeah I'm looking for a great escape

I'm looking for adventure
I'm looking for the fall
I'm looking for adventure
I'm looking for the fall

Well there's a full moon rising
And tonight's the night to be alive
Well There's a full moon rising
And tonight's the night to be alive

I'm the king of decision
Giving questionable opinions
Just a joker out of line
With good intentions as my crime

I'm looking for adventure
I'm looking for the fall
I'm looking for adventure
I'm looking for the fall

Well there's a full moon rising
And tonight's the night to be alive
Well There's a full moon rising
And tonight's the night to be alive

You took me out on a midnight tear
But I don't know where know I don't know where
Track Name: Moonshine
Cold feet at midnight
I'm restless at the sight
Gone are the days of my youth
Replaced with all these hard truths

I've lost, lost my way
Down the mountain I cannot say
Is it night or day
I've lost, lost my way

Cold feet at midnight
Or is this the twilight
Nervous thoughts fill my head
What had the wise man said?

I've lost, lost my way
Down the mountain I cannot say
Is it night or day
I've lost, lost my way

Don't let me burn, On my own, on my own
Don't let me burn, On my own, on my own
Don't let me burn, On my own, on my own
Don't let me burn, On my own, on my own

Hello moonshine, you will be my fortune tonight
Hello moonshine, you will be my fortune tonight

I've lost, lost my way
Down the mountain I cannot say
Is it night or day
I've lost, lost my way

I've lost, lost my way
Down the mountain I cannot say
Is it night or day
I've lost, lost my way
