lyrics

Our Ability to Dance

It’s good, it’s good
It’s empirically good
That we should love each other
It’s good, it’s good
It’s the flower of philosophy
That we should play together
So throw your coat over in the corner
& dance with your fellow creatures
You don’t have to be somewhere
It doesn’t matter if you’re there
Just pretend that your cellphone didn’t work
& the roads were flooded

It was an accident that brought you here
but you will not be denied
Lots of room for everyone
won’t you please come inside?
Our vision is rather limited
We haven’t got a lot of time
But we have the sweetest music
In this region of the galaxy
Sometimes we stumble on things that seem to be true
The world moves through us as it moves through you
It might be true to say
Our ability to dance redeems us
Our ability to dance redeems us
Our ability to dance redeems us
Our ability to dance redeems us
Our ability to dance
Our ability to dance
Our ability to dance
Our ability to dance

Our instrumentation is for three to six musicians, and our full complement includes guitar, mandolin, violin, keys/accordion, upright bass and small percussion. Our music is funny, angry, idiosyncratic, intelligent, and extremely varied.
