lyrics

We waged secret wars with secret kids
We didn't win but we know who did
It was them, they wouldn't bend

They sing themselves and they proclaim
Their dreaming makes them preordained
For art, for fame and made up names

Go tell that fox
Using the moon
"Your queen, if caught, will hum our tune"

We savored words from Saint Paul
We feigned suffering before the law
We were young and cruel and still in school

Jennifer, take it from me
Go easy on Theosophy
Get drunk and dance, don't miss your chance (at)

The wakeful shapes, the prayerful spans
The bedrooms of Saint-Florentin

Dermond is doomed
It can't be true
who's zoomin' who?
who's zoomin' who?

Stretch out your limbs
I want you to
Who's zoomin' who?
Who's zoomin' who?

We waged secret wars with secret kids
We didn't win but we know who did
I was stunned when you stayed
With the summer maid

Go tell that fox
Using the moon
"Your queen, if caught, will hum our tune"

Dermond is doomed
It can't be true
Who's zoomin' who?
Who's zoomin' who?

Stretch out your limbs
I want you to
Who's zoomin' who?
Who's zoomin' who?

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.
