lyrics

Somebody sing. Grab hold my throat and
pray for my freedom.
One quarter’s gone to sleep and phone calls and
keeping the lights on.

Love is a tyrant who is short with me
who took my arms and elbows for his debts
but if I could still reach the lever to this wind machine
I’d blow us both back far as we could get

And somewhere deep, my blood speaks english and
I am half crazy
Lions in tow — once wicked and line drawn
right now is hazy

Maybe you’re just a song I sing for company
And nothing’s gonna matter come the dawn
so fall on me and die if it suits you formally
I will follow you till we’ve stripped these shores to stone
I will follow you till we’ve stripped these shores to stone

Go and hide your kids beneath the cellar door
Go and draw a map back to your bed
Go get right with God and settle your score
The tide is gonna take you now instead

I’ve been a Tidal, Tidal Wave
heavy, my boom hits ground again
Sending the old towns to their graves
Massive, unquantified by men
I’ve been a Tidal, Tidal Wave

And no one’s the wiser
And no one’s the wiser
And no one’s the wiser
And no one’s the wiser
And no one’s the wiser
And no one’s the wiser
And no one’s the wiser
And no one’s the wiser

An Arbornaut is a three way cross between a flying squirrel, an astronaut, and an angel. I know one as soon as I spot one. They are naturally occuring in nature. I had a dream about them once and started a band. We are a choir and we are an orchestra. We are disgruntled classical musicians & believers in musical traditions of feeling lots of things. This is the noise from the inside of a root. ... more
