Bird, Andrew - Near Death Experience Experience Lyrics




You used to be like toffee,
Between the kitten's teeth -
You used to build arid shelters out of sticks and leaves and
spend the whole day underneath.

You used to be like copper -
Pliable but strong,
You used to smile and nod, say "you're right," be polite,
When you know that everybody's wrong.

So you dare the plane to crash,
redeem the miles for cash when it starts to dive
And we'll dance like cancer survivors -
like we're grateful simply to be alive.

Dare the plane to crash,
redeem the miles for cash
And we'll dance like cancer survivors -
like your prognosis was that you should've died.

No, there's nothing wrong; there's nothing wrong when it starts to down
And we'll dance like cancer survivors -
like we're grateful simply to be alive

No, there's nothing wrong; there's nothing wrong when it starts to down
And we'll dance like cancer survivors

    Can anyone tell me the pedal the guitarist is using?

  2. Derrick Williams

    Great performance made lesser by the TERRIBLE audio engineering. I've never heard a violin mixed worse than this. The bass guitar overpowers the violin, whistling, and even the vocals. Check out the NPR tiny desk recording and take notes.

  3. Claudio Nógena

    All bow to the Bird Man!!!

  4. Justin Ainsworth

    An amazing whistler. The best?

  5. Saganist420

    You know what? I'm gonna use bing for the rest of this day to show my appreciation for this video.

    Lee Evans

    +Saganist420 Well, don't do anything rash now.

  11. Bees In A Bottle

  12. megbarryy

    amazing. hes so awesome

  13. Berger Bear

    Well since the song repeatedly conjures up images of plane crashes his hokey slide work seems to me to imbue a sense of falling quite well.

  14. DATBURD

    I was there. So amazing live.

  15. ericofspades

    Who's the douche bag playing all the unnecessary hide-lack-of-talent-behind-extra-delay lead bits?

  16. Hugo Huijer

    Absolutely brilliant
