lyrics

Leave me
Leave me
On the shoreline, Commodore
Ease me
Ease me
Into the current headed north
Feed me
Feed me
To the starving albatross
Sail me
Sail me
To the center of the gyre
Bind me
Blind me
To the loss that growth inspires
Down me
Drown me
In the depths of our desire

And I’ll waste
And I’ll waste
And I’ll waste
And I’ll waste
Waste another castaway
Our loss

And I’ll waste
And I’ll waste
And I’ll waste
And I’ll waste
Waste another castaway
Our loss

Save me
Save me
For this shipwreck overboard
Bleed me
Bleed me
To the horizon evermore
Lines and
Lines of
Our detritus and debris
Diving
Dying
In the vortex
Our humanity

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.
