Deer Tick - Mr. Sticks Lyrics




A keeper’s cell, yeah, keep it narrow
Come and see the ugly things that life can bring
I’m out of my skull, my edges though
Waiting for a day and a claim to stake

Oh, Mr. Sticks, with the hug and kiss
You may say goodbye to all you’ve ever known
Oh, Mr. Mist, how’s your life like this?
Oh, the light that’s at the end is the star of the show

But baby cries and an old man dies
So cross your fingers tight and you’ll freeze time
A son gives his hand, a daughter gives her hand
Well, you see the change in the world for your littlest girl

Oh, Mr. Sticks, with the hug and kiss
You may say goodbye to all you’ve ever known
Oh, Mr. Mist, with a life like this
Oh, the light that’s at the end is the star of the show

If my heart goes, ‘fore my lungs blow
I can see a sudden match until death

Oh, Mr. Sticks, with the hug and kiss
You may say goodbye to all you’ve ever known
Oh, Mr. Mist, how’s your life like this?
Oh, the light that’s at the end is the star of the show

Oh, the light that’s at the end is the star of the show

  1. Rhonda Silver 97'

    The 75 people that "disliked" this were simply cleaning their keyboard.

  2. MrSticks42

    When you just write your nickname in Google - and found a great song, lol

  3. Maria Lunding

    I love that some pl daer to live ...... Thanks

  4. 1 Stop Custom LLC

    I know this video is old now but the cleaner he got the more he started looking like McCauley Culkin.

  5. Clint Boaz

    Anyone have any idea what guitar he John is playing?

    John Scott

    I'm pretty sure thats just a fairly basic fender acoustic

  6. Luis Eduardo Sampaio

    I don't care about the person he is, his music sounds great, that's what it counts. I have just made a cover from Goodbye Dear Friend by Deer Tick, if you like the song check it out on my channel! Thanks guys!

  7. gumbo

    The Miz?

  8. allbeletshappy1

    Im so so happy I found these guys. Very talented.

  9. Derek Harlan

    John reminds me of Kurt Cobain, except much better. You can actually understand his words.

    Dexter Reid

    I mean different genres and voices work better together than others.

    Derek Harlan

    I agree

    Dexter Reid

    I personally find them to be very equal and both sound amazing within their genres.

    S H

    No doubt better.

    Stoned Immaculate

    Derek Harlan nope, not better than Kurt.

    It’s simple, you compare John to Kurt because john lacks something. I don’t compare Kurt to anyone because his voice is perfect and incomparable in my opinion.

    Before you disagree just remember, you compared john to Kurt, not the other way around. Makes sense? I knew you’d understand 😂

  10. luxvoyager1111

    god i love john mccauley's voice so much

  11. christopher lowe

    If the song is authentic and its a part of his life then how is it not real? I understand your questioning of the morals involved but it has nothing to do with the music being performed.

  12. jordan mike

    I want to like this song, but knowing this is about his very rich congressman daddy (who John depended on to fund his drug abuse and travels), I have a hard time believing Deer Tick is authentic

    Gage Bryers

    Well that's easy, if it happened, it's authentic. Haha doesn't he have his own money at this point?

    totesjokin

    Don't let elitism dictate what music you can or cannot enjoy listening to. You say you "want to like it". So like it! For what it is.. music! Ya don't have to like the dude or his father, Jesus!

  13. Jesse Wilcox

    why are there so many dislikes?

    bill dunley

    Because people love negativity

    Dexter Reid

    @bill dunley That was great and I love you for saying that

  14. Сергей Леонов

    Oh! Negativity might to be called the best country (alt-country) album for at least 20 years

  15. kilroywasnthere123

    My favorite band

    Benjamin Wright

    mine too

  16. James Chiahan Lee

    Shit, why all the downvotes? This is awesome

  17. KVGerudo

    love the black flag bars on his guitar strap. many think those bars just represent the band, but to me, they are strength, struggle and power. just found out about this "band" ... ill have to listen to more.

  18. Lori W

    I am excited for "Negativity", to be released soon!

  19. Clayton Hart

    So great...so much soul.
