lyrics

Build it up and knock it down
Lead the sheep out to the pasture
Watch it tumble to the ground
Weed the garden spare the aster
Tell the children to come home now
Let the dogs out of the cages
Time to batten down the hatches
Light the candles
Turn the pages

Call the ships back to the harbor
Lock the cattle with the cargo
Post the footmen at the entrance
See the soldiers off to battle
Send the men back to the quarries
Mining up the alabaster
Etch the pages of the story
Impending doom and grave disaster

Alabaster
Alabaster
Alabaster

Etch it into alabaster
Carve it out of alabaster
Build it up from alabaster
Mine the shards of alabaster

about

Avifauna Denver, Colorado

Avifauna’s sound is an Electro-Folk blend of atmospherics and hypnotic

Svendsen’s dusky voice and brute lyrical narratives.
Svendsen’s lyrics draw on her life as an inveterate world traveler and nature
enthusiast. She weaves
narratives of intense emotion into a topical regard for the future of our planet.
