[Verse 1: Kimya Dawson]
The wind and rain are here again
And a powerless darkness had laid me down
The lights are out all over town

But the earthquake got me out of bed
The earthquake got me out of bed

See the little bird fly 'round his head
As the little boy sits on the ground
And makes the toy cars drive around

It's a loss that I can't comprehend
It's a loss that I can't comprehend
(There's been a fundamental loss we aren't comprehending)
Cause his mother died the other day
He's only three years old
Her body's gone but her soul is here to stay
See the little birdy-watch him grow

See the little birdy-watch him grow
(And grow and grow and grow and grow and grow and grow and grow)

[Verse 2: Aesop Rock]
October ended with a single feather funneling its way
To muddy Earth in front of funny sparrow copycatting
Eventually it would select and circle one
As if to pause and crown the victim of a loss I wasn't comprehending


There's been a fundamental loss we aren't comprehending
(It's a loss that I can't comprehend)

It's said the winged in post-mortal visitation echo well
The stasis of a spirit taken from its only home

A legend quoted by the wreathing of a grieving child
When all that's left to do is sit and watch the creatures grow and grow


[Overlapping Audio]
[Aesop Rock]
And grow and grow and grow and grow and grow and grow and grow
The winds and rain have begun inching in a frame
Like darkness with a bounty on whatever lay me down
The town had been retiring to its quarters as if waiting for the earthquake

[Kimya]
See the little birdy watch him grow
The winds and rains and here again and a powerless darkness had laid me down
The lights are out all over town but the earthquake got me out of bed
The earthquake got me out of bed
The earthquake got me out of bed
The earthquake got me out of bed
