lyrics

Mud Huts
I hired your dad to do a painting of a photograph I took,
Of a lighthouse, bears the switch, an angry sea.
Unruly rocks to discipline, the keeper’s warned to keep within,
But there’s a figure in my painting in between.
So watch out, little man.
And I hang that painting in my mud room,
Where that man’s about to die in oils,
Forever where my home receives its guests.
Where I dress to meet you,
Up against the wall, for
Whatever disaster, it’s the
Only time you call.
But I never want to tell you you have beautiful eyes,
Even I have beautiful eyes.
It’s never calm on your horizon, trepidation to your sighs.
But your eyes are all the come to mind.
Your boring eyes.
Have they heard of infrastructure? Would their skyscrapers collapse,
Where they were built to test the limits of the land?
It’s abusive to the soil, stripped for artificial growth,
Without the backing to stay turgid with our capital.
Watch out, little man.
I almost hope I fail prediction, it’s getting harder to rebuild,
And they were due for good decisions, I would guess.
All the homeless in Asia, with
Bricks to be laid, but their,
Bricks are all fired of such,
Limited clay.
But I never want to tell you you have beautiful eyes,
Even I have beautiful eyes.
It’s never calm on your horizon, trepidation to your sighs.
But your eyes are all the come to mind.
Your boring eyes,
Boring eyes.
But I never want to tell you you have beautiful eyes,
Even I have beautiful eyes.
It’s never calm on your horizon, trepidation to your sighs.
But your eyes are all the come to mind.
Your boring eyes.

about

Kick Ptarmigan Parry Sound

Kick Ptarmigan, having recently devoured local greats the Spins, are set to record their third album this year. They play a unique hybrid of hair metal and doo-wop that sounds suspiciously like indie folk/rock.

Comparisons to Leonard Cohen, Violent Femmes and the Barenaked Ladies have been met with confused stares.
