Time, all the long red lines, that take
Control, of all th smokelike streams that flow into yr
Dreams, that big blue open sea, that can't be
Crossed, that can't be climbed, just born
Between, oh th' two white lines, distant gods an' faded
Signs, of all those blinking lites, you had t' pick the one tonite...

Holes, dug by little moles, angry jealous
Spies, got telephones for eyes, come t' you as
Friends, all those endless ends, that can't be
Tied, oh they make me laugh, an' always make me
Cry, til they drop like flies, an' sink like polished
Stones, of all th' stones i throw, how does that ol' song go
how does that ol' song go...

Bands, those funny little plans, that never work quite right.

Jeez, even Nancy Sinatra can sing better than she does. What made anyone think this was a good idea?

Hmm, continue listening, or shove a hot soldering iron up my nose... why must I always be so indecisive?
 
How about you do mine and I'll do yours? Make things a little easier on us both.

First time i hear this band, but not a bad song, not bad!
I was fine with this until the frickin' saw came on!  3.

Far out! Who's the bloke in the background playing the saw?
How often do you get to hear the saw played?
So this is Mercury Rev, I like this song.

Awesome album!  It's winter music.  Funny little bird is a great song.

i love the sound, the characteristic mrev vocal and the nice trumpet interplay.

In fact, I'm gonna go home and dig this CD out and listen to it tonite.  Sure as hell ain't gonna watch the Obama fest on TV.

I like the piano. And the drums sound like a Pink Floyd song. I'll give it a 2.
...i don't know what this is, but it's totally cool...
