about

what vultures want to say to you

lyrics

carrion birds are circling outside the car
i look up and wonder just where we are
those birds are singing "it's time to die"
coaxing and wheedling--"come on, come on and try!"

and they tell me it's easy to go
to lay down the host
drop the body
keep the ghost

it's a blue-green glorious day!
i thought i had many things to say
(but maybe i don't)

(chorus)

we know life is rough; look at us

and they tell me it's easy to go
to lay down the host
drop the body
keep the ghost
(give up the ghost)

about

Rachel Taylor Brown Portland, Oregon

Rachel was born and lives in Portland with her beloved husband Jay and makes disturbing yet ultimately sensible songs you can sometimes dance to.

She sees loads of ugly and beauty in the world. Trying to capture that sweet and sour thing in a song is what she’s mostly trying to do.

She records with audio midwife and dear friend Jeff Stuart Saltzman and his cats.

Thanks for stopping by!
