lyrics

Lift up the topsoil
Dig up the worms
There with the clay
And rocks
And root-forms
Hide the bones

A misunderstanding
Left alone
Lost and abandoned over time
Overgrown
Bear it alone

There on the hillside
Bracken grows
High in a cloudbank overhead
Kestrels soar
Mothers and babies
Dart below
Heart in a shelter underground
Hide the bones
Bear it alone

Come out Come out
Come out Come out
Come out Come out
Come out Come out

Come out Come out
Hide the bones
Come out Come out
Bear it alone
Come out Come out
Hide the bones
Come out Come out
Bear it alone
Come out Come out

Wherever you are

Wherever you are

about

Avifauna Denver, Colorado

Avifauna’s sound is an Electro-Folk blend of atmospherics and hypnotic
rhythms and harmonies, all centered around singer-songwriter Meagen
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.
