One of the most amazingly talented singer/songwriters in modern music. His lyrics are some of the most mysterious, undecipherable, and beautifully poetic words you'll ever hear. The only thing that matches his gift with lyrics is his talent for creating original, catchy, melodies. This is pop at its best, and this is music that will last the test of time. If you have the chance to see him live, don't pass it up, he is one of the greatest live performers you could ever see.
Andrew Bird is one of the best modern lyricists, second only maybe to Thom Yorke.
In fact it's just the thing he thinks we're needing,
it's a lukewarm liquid diet they're force feeding.
When the words we use have lost their bite,
now they hit you like an imaginary pillow fight.
And when his masterplan is unfurled
he stands a handsome bid on the weather systems of the world.
Get out your measuring cups and we'll play a new game.
Come to the front of the class and we'll measure your brain.
We'll give you a complex and we'll give it a name.
I saw you standing all alone in the electro-static rain.
I thought at last I'd found a situation you can't explain.
