The Damsels in Distress Springfield, Missouri

The Damsels in Distress started in Springfield, MO in 2006. The music sounds like two people playing songs influenced by 80's and 90's punk/rock/antifolk.

Micah and Lauren are currently writing music for the KUAR Arts and Letters radio show and writing and recording music in their studio in Springfield. They play shows when people ask them.

Track Name: Old Spanish Trail
Hola, ?Como te llamas?
How are you?
Oh Senorita, I love you anyway.

Hola, ?Como te llamas?
How are you?
Oh, Senora, I love you anyway.
Track Name: A Hymn
A hymn of my own, alone.
The weeds I have pulled, so faithless.
Maybe the rock will lift tomorrow.
Or maybe I will walk around it.

To feel kind, make kind.
The blessed are kind.
To make it, I must leave it,
All of me left behind.

In gardens sleeping
On tables wasted.
His blood and life I pass on
Take later on the life.

Life is killing off of
Math is labor intensive.

You don’t know me.
You don’t know me.
You don’t own me.
Our ape pollution.
Unable revolution.
Track Name: Mr. and Mrs.
Your lovely heart’s bold
To love someone like me
Who sees this life in the only way to be free.
“I do” forever.

We’ll make the changes.
We’ll say what needs to be said.
And then we’ll do them in our hearts and our heads.

With this ring, I thee wed to be true love to be true.
With this ring, I thee wed to be true love to be true.
To be true.

So would you join me?
Soon our flesh will be one.
We’ll live together forever and forever.

“I do” forever.
Track Name: Corey's Song
You’re a good man.
You’re a good man.
For marrying the girl straight out of school.
You’re a good man.
You’re a good man.

We’ll weather all my plans.
We’ll weather all, my best friend.
A good girl and a good man.
Track Name: Amazing Race Audition
My name is Marci. My son is Samuel.
My name is Liberty. The author of this song doesn’t know much about me.

I can run fast. I can run far.
I can fast. I can run hard.
I am a Christian. I have ambition.
Let me on your game show.

Do you want to see my face on tv?

I can run fast. I can run far.
I can fast. I can run hard.
I am a Christian. I have ambition.
Let me on your game show.
Track Name: Handlebars
Handlebars to handlebars.
I’m taking one day off for sure.
I got a compliment today.
So today could be forever.

I’m joking out the window, but I’m choking in my mind.
I couldn't find the answers to these complicated rhymes.

I've been waiting here for hours.
These wrestles sleeping patterns.
I forgot all the answers and no one seems to mind.

I’m joking out the window, but I’m choking in my mind.
I couldn't find the answers to these complicated rhymes.
Track Name: Grown Ups
Hello. Hello. Hello.
Would you go?
I go. I go. I go.
To the right sometimes.

If you grow up tonight would you tell me?
Alright.
I see the way people grow up and change their minds.

I know. I know. I know that it’s hard.
Responsibility is a cross between,
Sacrificing your life for a better one sometime.
Keeping up the pretense for the gradual divide.

And I've tried.
I’m too tired.
What could be happening?
I think I lost a thought.
I can’t remember.
Did I forget something?
Track Name: Zero Field
Read about it with observations.
Don’t forget to fulfill those expectations.
The ones you feel are justified.

We’re bogged down with obligations.
All the people in our situations.
All those things we said that day were real.

Hallelujah, (Something stirs inside of me).
Hallelujah, (With every rule I break).
When God says it’s not good enough (Something stirs inside of me).
Hallelujah (When I see the pages blank).

Recover codes through conversation.
What’s the purpose in our renovations?
All those things you said to me were true.
Track Name: Rare Red Rainbow
We were laughing and singing.
We were dancing and singing.
While rain was coming down.
We knew it was there though we never had seen it.
The sun behind the clouds.

Like a rare red rainbow.
Like a rare red rainbow.

I was crying and waiting.
I was praying and waiting.
For love to come around.
Words tried to explain it.
Images tried to relate it.
But they didn’t know it no how.
It’s like a rare red rainbow.

Like a rare red rainbow.
Track Name: Dandelions Field
I am the winner and incidentally, the most amazing.
Stare at the sky if you will.

Knick-knack paddywhack.
Send the best that you have right on back.
Days go by.

I am the winner and incidentally, the most amazing.
Stare at the sky if you will.

There are no crumbs in my milk.
Before the tigers came,
This was a dandelions field.

Knick-knack paddywhack.
Send the best that you have right on back.
Knick-knack paddywhack.
Send the best that you have right on back.

Days go by. Like a kite in the sky.
Way up high. I close my eyes.
I close my eyes. Close my eyes.

I am the winner and incidentally, the most amazing.
Stare at the sky if you will.
It was a dandelions field.
Track Name: Space
I like you. You are mine.
All the time. All the time.
There are things I need to do.
And though alone, I still need you.

And sometimes I need to draw.
I need to paint. I need my space.
And I know you need the same.
And then we meet and dance and change.
Track Name: Pastiche
My name is Carla. This is my shop.
Part my heart and most my time.
My name is Carla.

My name is Todd. I am around.
Maybe you’ve seen me walk downtown.
My name is Todd.

With Pastiche design your home.
With fun new toys for boys and girls.
A stylish world. Affordable.

Plates and cups and Freitag bags.
And fun bright colored tags.
That move and swing.
This is real art. Pastiche.
