Oh I can't get over this moon
And all creatures under the sun
Moving through their days in a state of oblivion

Stars don't owe you anything
Don't give a damn about your nations
Feel the slightest obligation

I mean, listen
What if the world goes spinning off its axis?
And what if the moon begins to wane before it waxes?

Wrapped in darkness, you take my hand
Through all the chambers of the underland
Like this penny on the railroad track
If you go too far, you know you can't go back

Oh, I've never been here before
Deep inside earth's molten core
No need for clothes or for eyes to see

So find yourself a pair of ears
Gonna be down here for many years
Just listen out for that subterranean river of tears

Well, not exactly hell
More like a nocturnal paradise
Not exactly heaven either
I'd say 'bout half as nice

We're at the end now, you've run aground
And all the sound waves have gone underground
There's a threshold between the here and hereafter
To cross a river, you know you gotta take a raft there

Stars don't owe you anything
Don't give a damn about your nation
Or feel the slightest obligation

Oh, I can't get over this moon now
Oh, I can't get over this moon
Ooh, ooh

Sigh, another cutesie artist trying to be clever, but actually coming off as rehashing long gone music from past. While it would be nice for the puckelo to be some far out part of ensembles and garner some recognition, it remains a throw back to the ‘50’s, and that plus his cursive singing make this one too maudlin.
My wife brought me to a concert of his here in Richmond, Va. and had no idea what to expect.  I am easily impressed with people who have mastered their craft.  No  one sounds like him, at least to my ears.  How he does what he does and where it comes from is a mystery to me.  The concert was basically just him.   I was just awestruck as to what I was seeing.  Not everyone's cup of tea but he sure was a sight to behold, been a fan every since.
Call me shocked...Mr. Bird here has 27 songs listed on RP...interesting.  That's a rather large sample for a somewhat lesser known semi-folk artist...

And that's the joy of listening to the RP gang's choices...makes one realize that other options exist...that there's more world out there than one normally considers...thanks guys, an aha! moment and a coffee and the rain coming down...well done!

Andrew Bird can't do wrong. He just gets it so right. 
The Album before was called "My Finest Work so far" i think. But this is also very fine! Starting  with an 8!
Well, at first I did not notice this. But then, it grabbed me. Very nice, great lyrics, easy and intriguing to the ears. 
Mmm, interesting!
