Snacks

i know we're going to meet some day
in the crumbled financial institutions of this land
there will be tables and chairs
there'll be pony rides and dancing bears
there'll even be a band
'cause listen, after the fall there will be no more countries
no currencies at all, we're gonna live on our wits
we're gonna throw away survival kits,
trade butterfly-knives for adderal
and that's not all
ooh-ooh, there will be snacks there will
there will be snacks, there will be snacks

--Andrew Bird, Tables & Chairs"

  1. I saw Mr. Bird perform in Northampton a few weeks back. Someone in the audience shouted, "Will there be snacks?" and he replied, "Yes, there will be snacks." And then there were snacks.

  2. Did Brian Francis Slattery listen to this song before writing Liberation, I wonder?
