Cowbirds in love and nobody knows but cowbirds are gonna wait for no one When they catch on, gradually, you will see the town light up for cowbirds in love. They don't understand They're perfectly comfortable in their situation They have each other and they're totally engulfed Cowbirds in love make local news and here's the marching crowd and light show Military man points at the love shouting excitedly and waving Cowbirds in love, infatuated disregard the cries of Military Man Cowbirds in love are forever in love

Drowned like a rat and washed ashore Brand new environs to explore I start my trek across the land Beautiful little butterflies Colorful wings and Compound Eyes Thinking they're better than I am Put on my best t-shirt and jeans Went out to meet a guy like me Told me he knows a secret truth "Every difference is the same The most we can do is place the blame Hope no one ever asks for proof" Sat down to think this through alone and a Harvester stole away my bones I bet you think that couldn't happen to you Shell on the beach rings like a phone Inside, I hear, in muffled tones, "We're not so different you and me Tell me what's unique about you Hey, we have that in common too" I shut my big mouth in defeat Tells me, "for better or for worse I think you're ready and rehearsed to be the new Connor Delaney"

Red Giraffe 01:46
Red Giraffe takes a walk out of the jungle playset Into the living room He spies a little snack Green houseplant, you have nothing to fear Red Giraffe cannot reach you His corn syrup body's hardened His neck's no longer pliable Red Giraffe, wrecked by eons of neglect evolves to something unbelievable Red Giraffe, in the past could stretch to the height of Sanjay but Sanjay grows ever taller taller than giraffes And his dumb face turns into a boat and sails away from the playset but he knows they'll meet someday somewhere and Red Giraffe can tell him how he feels The water rejuvenates him and he can stretch up to breathe But Sanjay fires a harpoon Red Giraffe, wrecked by eons of neglect evolves to something unbelievable - unbelievably sad

about

Let's try Bandcamp out! Here are three songs I wrote with/about some comics friends in like 2009. A surprising amount of the audio here is from 2009 too.

Thank you for listening. You can hear other songs that I made at dictionaryattack.net. There will be more.

HERE ARE THE FRIENDS IN QUESTION:

Sanjay Kulkaček is friend #1 and his intellectual property appears in song 1, his namesake/likeness appears in song 3, AND he drew the artwork! You can visit him at cowbirdsinlove.com. You can also visit him at J7B at SPX this weekend and he might give you a piece of paper telling you to come to this website! Maybe he already has. Thank you.

Connor Delaney is the second friend. He helped me rewrite the second song into a song about(?) him! It was already sort of a style parody of him to begin with. His former self still haunts drawingboardcomic.com.

The final shadow friends are Morgan Quirk and Lukas Wong-Achorn, whose project "Red Giraffe" is not with us anymore. In fact, I'm told that Lukas is hard to come by these days. He voiced Sonic the Hedgehog in a thing of mine once and it was a life-changing performance. I guess he took off after that to spend some time with his family or something. Here's to Lukas, wherever he may be.
