The Questioner Appeared Today Again

    It's Bird Names-- toiling under its name after a thousand years to proudly give you 50 minutes of contemporary music to mythologize your life by. These minutes have come by serious meditation under the bodhi tree-- the insight of intuitive play tempered by tactful and ornate craft. Here is what I have to say to you. You will be amused to make yourself in its clay.

about

lyrics

THE QUESTIONER APPEARED TODAY AGAIN

With a shroud of purple mist as per the Illiad
The Questioner assumes a guise to gad

The Questioner appeared today again
And asked his, asked his question

The question from outside of time
Makes real people act out its mime

Somebody's asking that question again
The lightswitch tripped
A landscape panorama
A scrambler

The consequence of an answer
A question will change the Answerer

The Answerer defers
Til the question returns

(Here comes that question again)

The Questioner appeared today again
And asked his, asked his question

Again and again its the same question on repeat
Asked across a lifetime to the Answerer's retreat

As it asks it tells here you are
Suggesting the way to a new answer

The purple mist lifts
The Questioner for once satisfied
Goes quiet
