Feel the matress tense beneath me
Like the muscle of nonsleepy
Feathers flexing will defeat me
And it vexes me completely

    Well, 'indiefolkwhatev', that just means that you're only hearing the music, you're not actually listening.

    Ugh. I am so sick of Joanna Newsom coming up on my station. Her voice is so irritating. Time to ban this song, too.

    Theres a song on the Coraline soundtrack that sounds so similar to Cassiopeia! Which is why I love the really stunning soundtrack of namely film even more!

    anyone who can play the harp, sing like this, and bang a drum with her foot- owns my heart.
