Everybody's running to the sound of a speeding light
are you with me?

Lovers in the arms
of another sleepless night
can you save me?
come on save me

Caged bird
singing like a prophetess
artful and tragic
behind
the wire lines
of all our complex points of logic

And he woke up
tired of dying
a shame of self
not living in
God given skin

My mind
holds this building together
salvation comes like a wrecking ball
in a plume of dust and
a heart like feathers
A heart like feathers

is it just me or are some of the strings totally out of tune during the chorus?


i am really loving this right now.
Some folks here obviously need some higher education about how great this song is.  If you'd like, I could offer a class and you could pay me to teach you about how great it is. I have a great theory to back me up. I'll only charge you 50 thousand euros in tuition.  Of course if you want credit, if you want that prized degree, then you'll have to buy all my books and agree with everything I say in them, during a written exam. Then you can go and write for one of the corporate fanzine rags. {#Mrgreen}

This song is good for the ears...

The song and the album title are an allusion to this poem—

“Hope” is the thing with feathers
by Emily Dickinson

“Hope” is the thing with feathers —
That perches in the soul —
And sings the tune without the words —
And never stops — at all —

And sweetest — in the Gale — is heard —
And sore must be the storm —
That could abash the little Bird
That kept so many warm —

I’ve heard it in the chillest land —
And on the strangest Sea —
Yet — never — in Extremity,
It asked a crumb — of me.



Emily Elizabeth Dickinson — December 10, 1830 – May 15, 1886

Beautiful. Thank you!
Pleasant, but VERY Yo La Tengo....so more imitation than original for sure.
Thank you very much Father Lazarus, exceptional, as usual!
