about

Operation Mockingbird Santa Ana, California

Pulling from roots in classic Post-Punk and early Goth music, both The Janell (Vocals/Synths) and Chandler (Guitars/Bass/Drums/Synths) meld their personal take on the sounds they each grew up with. ... more

Track Name: The Man
When the end
Comes for you
No amount of bargaining
Will start your time anew

When the dark
Plays your song
The lies that you found comfort in
Won’t change that you were wrong
You were wrong

It’s your turn
Meet the man
He only deals in absolutes
Be careful where you stand

It’s your chance
You’ve got one
Better get your conscience clear
Now tell him what you done
What you done

I’m walking to the river
‘Cause I’ve got nothing to lose
With my pockets full of worries
And heartache in my boots

As the day
Writes the news
The disappointed hours pass
And fall away unused

As the sands
Drift along
The only thing for certain
Is you’ll miss it when it’s gone
When it’s gone

I’m walking to the river
‘Cause I’ve got nothing to lose
With my pockets full of worries
And heartache in my boots
Track Name: The Fix
We all take a little more
Than we need
I take from you
Your peace of mind
To keep
Near
Me

We all take a little more
Than we need
You take from me
These tears that bind
I want
To be
Free of me

Don’t blame me
For all
For all that you didn’t do

The bones of me
You say you guard
Are collected in a row
You tend to them
They are
Your prey

I will never move past the harm
It serves me far too well
You regret your part
That is
your role
To play

Don’t blame me
For all
For all that you didn’t do

Upon your guilt I throw my lance
My excuse to take apart
Those words you meant
So long
Ago

Upon my doubts you love to dance
My weakness keeps you strong
I have no hopes
So why’d you go
Away

Don’t blame me
For all
For all that you didn’t do
Track Name: With Knives
When all that you believe in
Turns you in for the crime
Who am I to say
What’s right

The doors they open inward
Each one is an answer why
That faith attempts
to deny

With knives
They call

With knives
They call me

With knives

The fabric of her dress says
home is far behind her
She sold her scars
To the light

She decorates the void with
The chaos that surrounds her
She lost the count
To the fight

With knives
They call

With knives
They call me

With knives

I have felt the pain of
The wheel that spins in its place
And never touches
Road to drive

Maybe it’s too late for me
To waste time with daydreams
Have I crossed the
Finish line

With knives
They call

With knives
They call me

With knives
