Song of the day: “Of Up and Coming Monarchs”

David Bazan feels very Portland to me. This one’s been in the earphones walking downtown and while flying around the country lately, from Pedro the Lion’s It’s Hard To Find a Friend.

“Of Up and Coming Monarchs”

Lyrics:

sunken ships rest
upon the ocean floor
where i’ve made my home
to dodge the draft once more
there once was a time one could flee to the north
but Canada’s not what she used to be
boycott the war when she could not afford to
thanks to the new American queen
swim with me
and we’ll escape all the troubles of the present age
finally free

the mermaids teach us
how to breathe beneath
the line that now divides
actions from apathy

swim with me
and we’ll escape all the troubles of the present age
finally free
