The Mountain Goats

Musical Genius

Just discovered some more genius.

The first song below featured at the end of an episode of The Walking Dead just aired this week. I was really smitten by the song and went searching for it on the interwebs - and of course ended up at YouTube, home of everything audio-visual and which must be the video version of Tumblr.



Lyrics and Meaning

Here's a link to a page with the lyrics and some intelligent comments.
Up the Wolves - lyrics

Another song

The second song, below, is simply another piece of theirs that I discovered as I went hunting. And it is insanely, preciously good.



Live work and article

And here's some live work and an article, which you may enjoy:-

There's bound to be a ghost
At the back of your closet
No matter where you live
There'll always be a few things
Maybe several things
That you're gonna find really difficult to forgive

There's gonna come a day
When you'll feel better
You'll rise up free and easy on that day
And float from branch to branch
Lighter than the air
Just when that day is coming
Who can say
Who can say

Our mother has been absent
Ever since we founded Rome
But there's gonna be a party
When the wolf comes home

We're gonna commandeer
The local airwaves
To tell the neighbors what's been going on
And they will shake their heads
And wag their bony fingers
In all the wrong directions
And by daybreak we'll be gone

I'm gonna get myself in fighting trim
Scope out every angle
Of unfair advantage
I'm gonna bribe the officials
I'm gonna kill all the judges
It's gonna take you people years
To recover from all of the damage

Our mother has been absent
Ever since we founded Rome
But there's gonna be a party
When the wolf comes home
