lyrics

Remember when you told me not to wander in too deep?
You said that these were troubled waters we were wading in.
The tide was growing stronger under, towing at my feet
And cormorants were flying south along the border.

We don’t know what we don’t know.
We don’t know what we don’t know.
We don’t know what we don’t know.

A seagull gave a warning call of what may lurk beneath.
A crowd had gathered round applauding Ridley’s great release.
The sun was falling lower in a watermelon sky
And we were lurching toward unavoidable goodbyes.

We don’t know what we don’t know.
We don’t know what we don’t know.
We don’t know what we don’t know.
We don’t know what we don’t know.

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.
