Birdhaus I
Birdhaus II
Little Death


Like Big Pink or more recently Gorilla Manor, "Birdhaus" is a loving tribute to the man palace where these songs were brought to life with strings, skins, and a newly-added synthesizer. It's maybe also a more mythical place - the upper canopy - more than just a home for winged creatures, also a resting place for the human soul.

Track Name: Dimension
I’m hoping it’s “out of this world”
what if it’s not? what if I’m wrong?
I’m cycling through all that I know
I’m taking account of my roles
what have I lost? what has it cost to think this much!

I scan my new dimensions
I look in all directions
call for help to come
waiting on the sun
strangled by the sum of what I’ve done

I’ve wasted my thoughts on a girl
writing about how we were, and what went wrong
I’m trying to write something else
not always about how I’ve felt, and not this song!

I'll go in all directions
I can’t hold my attention
what have I become?

once in a life you may find someone right
some give in, some hold on for a night
peace be upon those who call on the son
make it right, settle in for the fight!

I scan my new dimensions
I look in all directions
when at last it comes
the promise of the sun
