lyrics

MOUTH FULL OF BEES
a mouth full of bees
a pocket full of teeth
you stand there and find you’re a stump
your heads all a flutter
it’s crammed and it’s cluttered
suddenly you find you’re a stump
you’re smart and articulate
but you’re not right no you’re not right no you’re not right
hiding behind the clouds
the stars shine bright the stars shine bright the stars shine bright
he say’s darling i guess
my love it’s obscure
it dances and hides from the light
so don’t look too close
don’t hold too tight
the beast it skitters off in the night
the beast it skitters off in the night
you’re smart and articulate
but you’re not right
hiding behind the clouds
the stars shine bright
the bump and the grind
the whispering pines
they’ll tell us all we need to know
we may feel some panic
as our time draws near
and suddenly we find we’re just stumps
as suddenly we find we’re just stumps
we’re smart and articulate
but we’re not right no we’re not right
hiding behind the clouds
the stars shine bright
the stars shine bright

KING ROPES Bozeman, montana

When Dave Hollier spins records at a party, he plays stuff that’s all over the map. The Meters, The Knife, Boston, Bowie, Buck Owens. It could go very wrong. But it doesn’t. Finding the thread that leads from The Cars to The Beastie Boys to Van Halen to Prayers, he tells a long, beautiful, cross-cultural, multi-generational story. Hollier’s band King Ropes is doing much the same thing. ... more
