“You were a shameless child…bandied by stiff cross currents.”

Via on Mar 14, 2012

Andrew Bird has one of those voices you can sail away on.

Five of midnight. Restless, tired and not ready for sleeping. I want a song to sail away on. This is it. Let’s go sailing:

“Danse Carribe”

You were a shameless child
Bandied by stiff cross currents

 

Anything but “my,” “yes,” and “no”
Just simply weren’t invented yet
Oh yes, oh no

Then one day you’d had it
Exiled your close advisors

Ousted your dog, your rabbits
You’re through with pasifizers
You’re through with pasifizers now
You’re through with pasifizers

Here we go mistaking clouds for mountains, oh
Here’s the thing that brings the sparrows to the fountains, oh
Here’s the thing that makes you wrong for the highlands, oh
Here we go mistaking clouds for mountains
Autonomy

Then one day you’d had it
Exiled your close advisors
Ousted your dog, your rabbits

You’re through with pasifizers
You’re through with pasifizers now
You’re through with pasifizers now
You’re through with pasifizers

Here we go mistaking clouds for mountains, oh
Heres the thing that brings the sparrows to the fountains, oh
Here’s the thing that makes you wrong for the highlands
Here we go mistaking clouds for mountains

Autonomy.
