| the story: An anthem of individuality.  The Loon is an aquatic bird known for being an excellent swimmer.  They propel themselves with their feet above & under water while their wings provide assistance.   Loons are poorly adapted to moving on land & typically avoid dry land, except when nesting–even then, they build just at the water’s edge.  But, a loon will never be a fish–much like the philosophical nomad that wants desperately to be included but never quite finds “home” when he looks outside himself.

Last Words by the Pea Pickin' Hearts was recorded at Sound Biscuit Productions!LYRICS:

Born & bred, raised all along
To call it home, both sand & loam
Always constant, Faithful & true
A smile & wave to passers through
True of heart, absent of song
A different beat, so different all along

A fish out of water, a loon on the land
Air in the gills, walking on sand
At home on water, the loon at sea
But never a fish shall he be

An Expanse of blue, hereditary sod
Or pastures new, send my soul abroad
Fruit of the tree, never to roam
Wary to see, I have no home
Blue of heart, absent of song
A different beat, so different all along

A fish out of water, a loon on the land
Air in the gills, walking on sand
At home on water, the loon at sea
But never a fish shall he be

Black sheep, blue fish
Loonie bird, sing a song
Black sheep, blue Fish
Loonie bird, get along

A fish out of water, a loon on the land
Air in the gills, walking on sand
At home on water, the loon at sea
But never a fish shall he be

Black sheep, blue fish
Loonie bird, sing a song
Black sheep, blue Fish
Loonie bird, get along

Black sheep, blue fish
Loonie bird, sing a song
Black sheep, blue Fish
Loonie bird, get along

Get along, get along
Get along
