Songs by Mark Perkins Dawe

Badges

[Verse 1]
Just a little bit o’ pain, nothing ventured, nothing gained,
the badges earned through this life, reminding me I’m alright,
just a little bit o’ lies, always look into their eyes,
some badges make you cry, most scars heal as time goes by,
and time goes by,
just a little bit o’ greed, you have to take care of your needs,
take what you can and flee, just don’t you take it from me, oh no,
don’t you take it from me,
[Chorus 1]
Badges earned, through this life, livin’ at the pointy end of the knife,
takes just a little bit, just a little bit o’ pain to learn,
nothing ventured, nothing gained.
[Verse 2]
just a little bit o’ fear, a challenge won, a joyful tear,
stir it up, shout it out, clear the air, remove the doubt,
and no doubt that,
just a little bit o’ love, lets them know what you’re made of,
take a walk in someone’s shoes, see life from that point of view,
and what would you do?
[Final Chorus]
Badges earned, through this life, livin’ at the pointy end of the knife,
takes just a little bit, just a little bit o’ pain to learn,
nothing ventured, nothing gained,
Badges earned, through this life, livin’ at the pointy end of the knife,
takes just a little bit, just a little bit o’ pain to learn,
nothing ventured, nothing gained.

Laughing to the Moon

[Verse 1]
Seven days and, seven nights,
from dark to light to man,
they haven’t learned in all these years,
how to share or take care of this land.
[Verse 2]
This pack is fair, this pack is strong,
we share the win, share the load,
we know the strength, the strength of respect,
we know the strength of love.
[Chorus 1]
This wolf is watching, we see your angry tears,
in the air, we smell your angry fear,
you have some need, to need more and more,
and watch your own kind bleed,
and this wolf, is laughing, to the moon,
laughing to the moon, laughing at you.
(ah-hoo-oo) (ah-hoo)
[Verse 3]
Seven days and, seven nights,
from dark to light to man,
they haven’t learned in all these years,
how to share or take care of this land.
[Chorus 2]
this wolf is laughing, howling to the moon,
howlin’ it loud, howlin’ with the pack,
‘cause if the humans keep to their self-destructive ways,
we’ll soon have this planet back,
so we’re howling, and we’re laughing,
laughing at you, yeah, we’re laughing at you,
(ah-hoo-oo) (ah-hoo-oo)
laughing at you.
(ah-hoo)
[Chorus 3]
(ah-hoo-oo) (ah-hoo-oo) (ah-hoo)
we know our time, our time is coming soon, so we’re howling,
we’re laughing to the moon and we’re howling, and we’re laughing,
Laughing at you, we’re laughing at you-oo, laughing at you,
(ah-hoo-oo) (ah-hoo-oo) (ah-hoo)

Biography:

I try to keep it simple with acoustic guitar, vocals, drums, bass, and just an occasional bit of strings or percussion sugar added. My lyrics include some light storytelling, darker social commentary, and some reflection. My music style is influenced by artists across rock, folk-rock, folk-punk, blues, and country genres.
