about

I dreamt I found us both again
You were sunburned brown, you were still my friend
But now you are a seeker
And I am older, I am a bad dreamer

I was dreaming of your love, I guess
You were groping me, you were getting dressed
I was carnal, I was careful
When you came to me and gave to me my evils

And our ears returned too soon
to the Foghorns and to Supermoon
We were far too tense to listen
We were drunk on wine when our throats began to glisten

I need you to be good to me
Like the sibyls of antiquity
At least while we are sober
If you conjure me then maybe I'll come over

We had sin to see us through that Spring
We gladly gave ourselves unto these things
What solemn chords, what solemn sound?
Could reach our ears and turn this ark around?

I dreamt I found us both again
You were sunburned brown, you were still my friend
But now you are a seeker
And I am older, I am a bad dreamer

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.
