She lives in this house over there, has her world outside it.
Grapples with the earth with her fingers and her mouth, she's five years old.
Thread worms on a string, keeps spiders in her pocket, collects fly-wings in
A jar scrubs horse flies and pinches them on a line. she's got one friend
He lives next door, they listen to the weather, he knows how many freckles
She scratches his beard. she's painting huge books, glues them together,
They saw a big raven; it glided down the sky, she touched it.
Today's a birthday, they're smoking cigars, he got a chain of flowers,
Sows a bird in her knickers, they're smoking cigars, lie in the bathtub, chain of flowers.
It's our birthday! That's right, it's been a year since we launched this ship and began our musical adventure together. And we're keeping it going y'all. It's been at times a bit of a challenge to keep up with the day-to-day grind, but mostly it's been a lot of fun and we've discovered and shared some really great music.
To celebrate we went with one of my favorite songs from The Sugarcubes, "Birthday". Happy birthday to us!
