|HoB #4: god ain't dead it just never lived in "Corvid Curve" @ 1 second increments||
12/16/2020> "Corvid Curve" is the 4th # on Herd of Birds. We didn't intend "Corvid Curve" to be a song on the album but our bedder-½ liked the riff so we wrote some existential lyrics about the futility of mankind, the inevitability of entropy, giving into K-OS w/out proliferating + of course birds, in particular crows. Musically it's basickly just strung together bird calls featuring a puffin, willow ptarmigan, gunnison grouse + a dusky grouse (there was a namesake crow in it but it didn't work out) + we filled in the gaps w/ whatever else. @ the beginning of these liner notes think we said we didn't use a bass guitar but we did on this #. The video footage was appropriated from The Birds of course, slowed down to the beat of the song which was easy to do since film is shot @ 24 frames per second + the song is 120 beats per second.
the lead is blown
submit to the ruin
sleeping is sinking
lulled into the blissful pull of sleep
the corvid curve
+ all for what?
a body at rest will stay at rest
shallow wave equations don't apply
it bothered us that we oned the house
save your breath
for the bedder of earth
