lyrics

The grass is always greener
When the tribunal says it’s cleaner
So say the creatures of the city
Add the complaint to the litany
And as we sally forth together
Hoof and mouth, unrepentant
Our means of survival are our trade secret

And our trade secrets you've yet to learn

CHORUS:
Little sparrow, you're so narrow
You can fit into anyone's jeans
Look, there's the pigeon
who just a smidgeon resembles a young James Dean
Little sparrow, how you do it?
Keep your cool with so much going on
I guess you just get dressed one leg at a time
And don't sweat the small shit


Paws and claws, your feather feelings

It's a bipedal ride you're stealing

These troubling times they hardly faze us

And our resilience always amazes

We never needed your permission
We've been doing it this whole time
Some of us can even speak your language

And read between those man-made lines

CHORUS

And the bacteria though invisible
Can put you in the hospital
On the filth
On the subway tracks
And the endless midtown deli buffets

You think you're better than us? (you're not)

You pay 2/3 your salary to live in places we've lived forever
And the food with which we’ve been partying for days

K-9, K-10

Lion’s share stays in the lion’s den

With the dreams of humble sparrows

Animals domestic, feral

We are the keystone species
We always were
We stand together
Feathers and fur

about

Family Fun

Family Fun is equal parts punk rock n' roll and nothing. A refreshingly haphazard, multi-lensed beast drawing upon influences musical, historical, comical, and sexual. Hardcore threaded with the theatrical, punk rock peppered with proud pop insensibilities, draws fervently from a gorge of culture and history whether it be Born Against, Dinosaur Jr., Agnostic Front, ELO, Iggy Pop, or Joan Rivers. ... more
