about

*EXPLICIT LANGUAGE*
Based on true, lightning-chasing events. It's a riotous life, full of laughter and pirates and high sea shenanigans!

lyrics

The gulls and the crows are in the midst of a turf war
It’s a screaming song of sadness that I’ve heard somewhere before
Didn’t you say the same thing while we waited for the train?
Well we saw the lightning, we chased the black storm
Followed it down the tracks till the early morning
Electricity bleeding with the dawn

Seagulls never get lost on their way to the sea
So if you’re not a seagull, don’t worry
Just get lost with me

Picking out the feathers from your hair one by one
You’re flustered and you’re honest and that’s attractive to some
I don’t see you as a burden, your wing is broken just like mine
Tanning on the rooftop, ship-shape, sails drop
Roaring over this lonely ocean and we can’t stop
Lost Boys don’t give a shit about unhappy thoughts

Seagulls never get lost on their way to the sea
So if you’re not a seagull don’t worry
Just get lost with me

Lost Boys don’t give a shit about unhappy thoughts
Lost Boys don’t give a shit about unhappy thoughts
Lost Boys don’t give a shit about unhappy thoughts
Lost Boys don’t give a shit about it

These air currents are sublime, though we’ve had our rough times
As long as you’re happy, I’ll have my piece of mind
I wouldn’t want this leviathan city to catch you in it’s jaws
If the wind blows us apart for miles
We can still kill pirates with our crocodile smiles
Let’s stay lost.......for a while

about

Dogwood Seattle, Washington

Hailing from the hedge and loam of Seattle's undergrowth, this chimerical songbird aims to weave historical and wax hysterical in the old-new traditions of mountain men, shantymen, and her fellow men as she tromps and twirls acro'st both ancient myth and accidental malady. This little troubadour delights in bringing life to the voices of the past, so come and share a pomegranate seed or two! ... more
