Simple X
Andrew Bird Lyrics


Some people wake up on Monday mornings
Barring maelstroms and red flare warnings
With no explosions and no surprises
Perform a series of exercises

Hold your fire
Take your place around an open fire

Before your neurons declare a crisis
Before your trace Serotonin rises
Before you're reading, your coffee grounds
And before a pundit could make a sound
And before you're reading your list of vices
Perform the simplest exercises

So here we are at the end, the war is over
There's nothing left to defend, no cliffs of dover
So let us put down our pens and this concludes the test
Our minds are scattered about from hell to breakfast

Hold your fire
Take your place around an open fire

Before your neurons declare a crisis
Before your trace Serotonin rises
Before you're reading, your coffee grounds
And before a pundit could make a sound
And before you're reading your list of vices
Perform the simplest exercises

Hold, hold your fire
Take your place around an open fire

I feel like this song would fit right into the Kid A album :)

Peter Rabbit

the drums and ambient sounds are so similar to Kid A...but maybe the song too upbeat not distant enough to really fit. maybe it fits into in rainbows era radiohead really well

NB

This is my favorite Andrew bird song.

Me too :) it is my wakeup song

Joe Cates

a beautiful song that reminds me of beautiful times in my life. perfect for a rainy day paired with a hot cup of coffee

I like how you said "a well-known contributor to feelings of well-being." I know too many people who talk about neurotransmitters as if they are the feelings they help evoke. One should be careful not to confuse the moon with the finger that points to it, as they say.

I have actually come to like this song a lot since my last comment. :)

I guess this song is more for the dedicated older fans... to me every song that he sings makes sense!
