lyrics

Plume and Orange

Young Bowerbird he made an offer
stacked high for a lady that's wandering by
she's through with talking
they're the last two with a body still walking

Plume and orange he'll try a last arch
of doll curls and the bedding of pop stars
wet with sound, now wholly wrung out
the rust stains make a tracklist of last sounds

---
No wisdom
No worry
Holding breath like canaries
There's no whistle or work
just soft earth
and two birds
---


She followed him into his twig hearth
both cold but the feathers are some warmth
all outside last night is streaming
through a pinhole in the early evening

Groomed but harmed
there's no more squawking
they're tight-beaked about blood
tight-beaked about blood...y
markings


----
opportune grass pushed opened gatefolds
while highest allies landed on light poles
and pallets of gold reserved for no one
pallets of gold...reserves for none
----

Southern squalls turned heads of yellow
still shaped in the paintings on sidewalls
plume and orange the shoal has soaked in
and inside are cinders still smoking

---
No wisdom
No worry
Holding breath like canaries
There's no whistle or work
just soft earth
and two birds
---

This go-round Heyward has captured an even more honest and relaxed vibe with the help of co-producer Ben Riesman (Le Fits, Bart Davenport) and mixing engineer Quentin Stoltzfus (Mazarin/Light Heat, The Walkmen, Lilys, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah). ... more
