about

This track is about the bullfinch (Pyrrhula pyrrhula.) The bullfinch is not a migratory bird. They stay with us throughout the winter and as a result, could be considered a pest to farmers and landowners. They have an astounding ability to rip through crops and take the lot. Luckily for them, they are also considered a thing of beauty and mostly they get away with their acts of theft.

lyrics

Pyrrhula pyrrhula.
Pyrrhula pyrrhula

He's picking and pecking and hopping and dancing
Right there in the arms of the skeleton tree.
You find him, you loose him, you never did choose him
But freedoms a place where he wanted to be.

There's a fire in the trees,
You're caught on the breeze,
He eyes death, defies death,
He takes what he needs.
There's a price on his head,
He flashes his red
Flag and you cannot move,
You will not see him dead.

Pyrrhula pyrrhula.
Pyrrhula pyrrhula

He's picking and pecking and hopping and dancing
Right there in the arms of the skeleton tree.
You find him, you loose him, you never did choose him
But freedoms a place where he wanted to be.

The trees are in blume,
He whistles his tune,
You watch as your crop fades away like the moon.
How can it be wrong when your heart sings his song?
You sing it.
He wings it.
He's where he belongs.

Pyrrhula.
Pyrrhula pyrrhula

He's picking and pecking and hopping and dancing
Right there in the arms of the skeleton tree.
You find him, you loose him, you never did choose him
But freedoms a place where he wanted to be.

The twists that he makes
And the turns that he takes
Show a closely knit weave he will not move beyond.
His landscape is changing,
His world re-arrangeing
But his bones are their bones
And this is their bond.

Pyrrhula pyrrhula....
