(Looking up and looking down)

lyrics

Some stragglers from a sparrow flock
Broke off to mob a red tailed hawk
And chased him, screaming
Round and round the block

It’s hawks by day and owls by night
In the grass I’m finding grisly sights
Rabbit halves and quarter squirrels
And thirds of birds

What can you do? It’s just the way of the world
Throw a little sawdust on the purple swirls
And the buzzing flies beneath the tilt-a-whirl

Throw a circle of sky as I lie on my back
The birds so high they may as well be gnats
Gratification delayed and delayed
I’m beginning to wonder if we missed the train

Grackles in panic on the railroad tracks
Fighting over fried chicken scraps
An old man crushing aluminum cans
He does a dance to the thinking man’s jam band
I mean Can

I ain’t no gentille aloutte
Flying high above the fray
Singing a song like nothing’s wrong
So you can get on with your day

Teardrops from treetops
Here come the crows
There go the leaves
They gotta give up the ghost

Well, it’s birds of burden, words of prey
Walking my dog day dreaming away
All in a day, a beautiful day

about

Scott Hrabko Kansas City, Missouri

Kansas City's Scott Hrabko is an independent singer/songwriter who has followed his own restless, shape-shifting muse since the town's late-80s indie rock scene.

“Hrabko’s rootsy songs are filled with trap doors, hidden nooks, and secret passageways. They’re like those dreams within comfortably familiar houses that suddenly have brand new rooms.”
Mike Warren - No Depression
