about

How much can you learn by observing? How much do you have to learn on your own?

lyrics

Two birds, High Flying West
Underneath the crescent of the moon
High above the jack pines, they do their best
Down here, we're naturally immune

A momentary flash of recognition
A choice to stay smart without the scars
Observing in yourself your inclinations
Your tiny place on earth, beneath the stars

Magic in the snow, and it’s still April
But we’re so far North that no one seems to see
The biggest sky, so often one you’ve missed before--
Missed your chance for sweet recovery

A momentary flash of recognition
A chance to stay smart without the scars
Remembering at once your obligations to
Your tiny place on earth, beneath the stars

A momentary flash of recognition
A choice to stay alive while you’re at sea
Considering it might be hallucination,
this distance you have traveled, or reality
