lyrics

To the bees, to the bees go the spoils
To the bees, to the bees go the spoils
And the fireweed, fireweed crawls
To the bees, to the bees, to the bees

Oh the dogs', oh the dogs' wild howlin'
Oh the dogs', oh the dogs' wild howlin'
Gives the mountain lion, mountain lion pause
But the bees, but the bees, but the bees

Oh the hind, oh the hind hears 'em callin'
Oh the hind, oh the hind hears 'em callin'
By the River Run, River Run falls
And the bees, and the bees, and the bees

So she waits, so she waits by the water
So she waits, so she waits by the water
For the final kill, final kill calls
And the bees, and the bees, and the bees
And the bees, and the bees, and the bees
She knocks down a stone

Black clouds, black clouds and black honey
Black clouds, black clouds and black honey
The canines rise, the canines swell
And the canine lies where that canine fell
And the hind, and the hind, and the hind
The hind walks away

To the bees, to the bees go the spoils
To the bees, to the bees go the spoils
And the fireweed, fireweed crawls
To the bees, to the bees, to the bees
To the bees, to the bees, to the bees
To the bees, to the bees, to the bees

David Alan Thornton New York, New York

Alaska-raised, NYC-based, singer-songwriter David Alan Thornton has has been called "too open-minded for the Midwest and too open-hearted for New York." As a performer, his "soulful vocal stylings compliment confessional lyrics that border on literary greatness." With a sound in the middle of David Bowie and Cat Stevens, you might call him an alternative-folk-rock singer, but who really knows? ... more
