lyrics

Brutalist doesn't mean what you think it does
Hosanna wasn't over when you wished it was
Kiss me on the mouth, it's Christmas Eve
I have stars in my eyes, I have winter seeds

Because I have ideas and you have ideas
And we're wasting our youth on these wretched careers

But it's not too late
To start over here

Jim told me all about Los Angeles
I don't remember much, but I remember this:
The waves look like lace when they reach the shore
And he saw M. Emmet Walsh in the grocery store

You know I have my flaws and you have your flaws
And we're bending our beauty while breaking blue laws

But we still look good
After it all

Brutalist doesn't mean what you think it does
Hosanna wasn't over when you wished it was
Kiss me on the mouth, it's Christmas Eve
I have stars in my eyes, I have winter seeds

Because I have ideas and you have ideas
And we're wasting our youth on these wretched careers

But it's not too late
To start over here

about

Virgin of the Birds San Francisco, California

Named after a poor English translation of a Salvador Dali painting, Virgin of the Birds treads a line between intimate, lo fi folk and the occasional grandeur of early art rock.
