Lull
Being alone, it can be quite romantic
Like Jacques Cousteau underneath the Atlantic
A fantastic voyage to parts unknown Going to depths where the suns never shown……

So I go a little overboard, but hang on to the hull

While I’m airbrushing fantasy art on a life that’s really kind of dull

Oh, I’m in a lull

I’m all for moderation
But sometimes it seems
Moderation itself can be a kind of extreme…

I start conjugating proverbs where once there were nouns
This whole damn rhyme scheme’s really starting to get me down…

Tables and Chairs

I know we’re gonna meet someday
In the crumbled financial institutions of this land
There will be tables and chairs
There’ll be pony rides and dancing bears
There’ll even be a band
‘Cause, listen after the fall
There’ll be no more countries, no currencies at all
We’re gonna live on our wits
We’re gonna throw away survival kits, trade butterfly knives for Adderall
And that’s not all—there will be snacks!

So Much Wine

lookformeanotherday:

Andrew Bird - So Much Wine (The Handsome Family cover)


Listen to me, butterfly
There’s only so much wine
That you drink in one life
But it will never be enough
To save you from the bottom of your glass

Where the state highway starts
I stopped my car, I get out to stare up at the stars
As meteors died and shot across the skies
I just thought about your sad and shining eyes…

Andrew Bird!

He was phenomenal, as usual. He and Dosh played some fantastic music; both solo and together! The encore was beautiful and moving.

He was lovely enough to chat with us after, even though he was hungry and waiting to get dinner…

He remembered us from the Higher Ground show two years ago in Burlington, and says “Hello, Bird Watchers,” and congratulated me and my husband on our marriage. :) Such an amazing night!
