about

A party tune celebrating the natural world

lyrics

I wake up in the morning and these birds are singing sweetly
I open up my eyelids and the walls all speak to me
I will whistle at their whispers
I will shiver in the shadows
I find myself in places
I'm not supposed be

I soar aimless through the ocean spray
Or I flutter over gallows
Remorseless winds of time blow all my
Feathers to the morrow
I sense movement in the woods and their eyes
Shimmer in the shadows
The pack of beasts are howling
Bent to an orb of night

Chorus
Howl at the moon
Howl at the moon
Crawl out of your hiding place
And howl at the moon

Howl at the moon
Howl at the moon
Say hello to distant faces
Howl at the moon

Everywhere I go you know
These people look so strange to me
The tip their hats in photographs
They are a mystery
Melancholy smiling eyes
This world is so weary
I don't know why they're smiling
When they seem to sad to me

Chorus

In evening when the sun gets low
Light flickers through the trees
There's happy creatures everywhere
Just doing what they please
Tiny ants mill around and little snakes slither
The frogs are sweetly singing and it sounds so good to me

Chorus

At midnight on this starlit road I kick the cobblestones
I sing myself a lullaby <scat>
I will wander now to find my love, his eyes are molten gold
While dreaming of his sweet caress my mind is close to home

Chorus x2
