about

Originally released on Glitter Flies ep

lyrics

Please lighten up long enough for the photograph
Say cheese. Brighten up or at least put on an act
You say you’re pleased for the happy pair
But your smile looks like it’s nail-gunned there

And the bitter birds arrive
Buzz around like glitter flies
Hear them croak and hear them cry
The bitter birds and their bitter words keep your bitter heart alive

So please even though you’re all ash inside
Just freeze, take those poisonous thoughts outside
For once will you make like human being?
Eat your free lunch and forget what you’re seeing.

And the bitter birds arrive
Swarm around like glitter flies
Watch them drop and watch them dive
The bitter birds and their bitter words keep your bitter heart alive

And the bitter birds arrive
Buzz around like glitter flies
Hear them croak and hear them cry
The bitter birds and their bitter words keep your bitter heart alive

And who hears them but who endears them, the bitter birds
And who feeds them but who needs them, the bitter birds
And who hears them but who endears them, the bitter birds
And who feeds them but who needs them, the bitter birds

Their unusual piano/drums/guitar-or-bass line-up might appear lacking, but thoughtful arrangements, harmony vocals and sheer enthusiasm result in a big sound from a wee band. ... more
