lyrics

You scorned me secular
And said I was a savage
These kinds of errors are killing your image at the salon
Where consistency stands tall
They’re not heretical at all, at all, at all

So “savage” I took well
But “secular” I could tell
You tried to hurt me
By decrying I was modern
You tried to paint me in a corner
And claim the Great Codes of Art
Were essentially apart from
Any visions that make this life worth living

I find you hurtful and conceptually inconsistent
I find you hurtful and conceptually inconsistent

Every rival, every sigh
Every name you know me by
Will dissolve into the sea
As we are severing from thee
You were hazy you were white
You were moving in the light
Blazing sacred and offset
You were a novitiate

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.
