lyrics

The night needs to be
Rid of me, at last
‘Cause when I’m gone, everyone will
See that you’re the best

At capturing
The old chaos of the sun
From the fresh evils
That you quietly have won

And when you sing your song
The sea becomes me
You were right to ask
Who am I to be the sea?

And to Neptune,
A villainess from the south
With mongrel eyes
And sold-out poems in her mouth

“Show us your throat
Show off your voice to us” they said
You turned your eyes and
Started swimming straight ahead

And when you sing your song
The sea becomes me
You were right to ask
Who am I to be the sea?

And when you sing your song
The sea becomes me
You were right to ask
“Who am I to be the sea?”

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.
