lyrics

Oh I'm in trouble, almost lost my breath.
That’s a roundabout way to say I'm verging on death.
Now one thing troubles me, I can't reach where this water be,
the bottom of the pitcher, but I've got an idea,
‘this crow’s got an idea, this crow’s got an idea.’

Oooh.
Pebble by pebble and stone by stone,
these rocks, gonna fill it up and let my tongue soak
in the river drink from the kitchen sink.
I nearly quench my thirst as the filler tops dry.
Ooooh.

Still so desiccated rays from the sky sting my eyes.
The sun is so relentless, that I've wanted to cry,
but I can't manage that, as long as I'm still about to die.

Tired and sun-fired my broken beak feels like barbed wire
from the inside of my mouth that's been turning to dust
and as I look again I see a much desired quality,
I found another pitcher with a prize so clear,
‘this crow’s got an idea, this crow’s got an idea.’

Oooh.
Pebble by pebble and stone by stone,
these rocks, gonna fill it up and let my tongue soak
in the river drink from the kitchen sink.
I slake away my thirst as the filler tops dry.
Pebble by pebble and stone by stone
these rocks, gonna fill it up and let my tongue soak
in the river drink from the kitchen sink.
I slake away my thirst as my wings take flight.

about

Juniperus Saskatchewan

In 2013, Jeffrey Popiel began a solo project titled 'Juniperus'. His inspired originals have more recently taken on a new life with the pursuit of ÆSOP's Fables. While these new 'fable songs' reside in the realm of folk, they present themselves in a diverse way, by using distinct voicing for each character, and swaying between genres, such as ambient folk, quirky pop, and folky blues. ... more
