Anything Worse is the first single off of The Falling Birds new EP What Is There To Talk About?



I’m on my back and laughing
I can hardly get through the verse
Bleed out. You’re very important.
I can hardly think of anything worse
Throw away your throw away culture
I’m pulling off to the side
Happiness is a real tall order
My Kind is in short supply
... Gone are the words that are on my lips
... Gone. The only word on my lips
... Gone are the words that are on my lips
... Trailing off. A careful though. A lashing tong.

I smile it’s a stupid question
All I don’t know can’t hurt
I don’t see why it’s very important.
I can hardly think of anything worse
Checked out of a checked out culture
I’m locked in and I feel alright
Take Burroughs as a prime example
My kind’s in short supply

All right? We’re all alright. But I can’t go to sleep at night.
Ok? We’re all ok. But I’m still awake.

The Falling Birds have a simple concept: Write songs with clear foundations in blues and folk, and throttle them with punk rock snarl. Their style is equal parts careful musicianship and wild indifference.
