Biography

The Manxome Foes is the experimental brain child of singer/songwriter/recording artist/producer Ryan David Orr. Falling somewhere between The Cure and Radiohead, The Manxome Foes music lends itself to visual accompaniment, making it perfect for placement in film, television, and other visual media projects.

Lyrics

Ariel in Graylight, Stormy

Written By: Ryan David Orr

Had to be enough for the tympani call.
Had to be on two different rivaling walls.
Had to be the father with all of his bulls.
Had to be the mother in shame from the fall.
After you checked and nobody was home.
In between hating and loving the world.
How to be a woman and still be a girl.
How to pretend you don't need to be told; and to be told.

Sister was shaking a dagger.
Sister put cracks in the window.
Left all the cash on the table.
Nothing is said that you don't know.
Didn't they promise you freedom?
From the very first time you would listen.
They tricked you and held their position.

Ariel in graylight, stormy.
We missed you in the list of the chosen.
They said it before; they'll say it again.
Some of us were made more fortunate people, and nothing anywhere is easy.

Do you believe you could make it, without anyone to be there when you fake it?
When you attempt to not fade like a flame.
Judges are wanting of only a name.
Out of the corners we shudder and rise.
Into the indifferent contempt of the sky.
Into the malice of never and why.
They told me the same thing they told you; it wasn't a lie.

Ariel in graylight, stormy.
We missed you in the list of the chosen.
They said it before; they'll say it again.
Some of us were made more fortunate people and nothing anywhere is easy.
