Fireworks - Animal Collective

Fireworks

Strawberry Jam
experimental psychedelic indie indie rock best song ever


"Fireworks" is the second single from Animal Collective's 2007 album, Strawberry Jam, released November 5, 2007 by Domino Records. Rather than including a b-side, the reverse side of the record is an etching. The video for this song premiered in July 2007. During the tours of 2005 and 2006 this song was known as "Allman Vibe". The song was listed at No. 35 on Pitchfork Media's top 500 songs of the 2000s. When performed live between 2007 and 2009, the song often stretched upwards of ten minutes with the addition of elements of either "Essplode" or "Lablakely Dress", two songs from the band's earlier album Danse Manatee. This song appeared in the Channel 4 Drama Series Skins in 2007, and in an episode of the third season of HBO's In Treatment series in 2010.

Fireworks - Animal Collective

Now it's eight, I've been trying to get that taste off my tongue
I was dreaming of just you, now our cereal, it is warm
Attractive day in the rubble of the night from before
Now I can't walk in a vacuum, I feel ugly, I feel my pores
It's the trees of this day that I do battle with for the light
Then I start to feel tragic, people greet me, I'm polite
"What's the day?"
"What's you doin'?"
"How's your mood?"
"How's that song?"
Man it passes right by me, it's behind me, now it's gone
And I can't lift you up, my mind is tired
It's family beaches that I desire
A sacred night, we'll watch the fireworks
The frightened babies poo
They've got two flashing eyes and they're colored why
They make me feel that I'm only all I see sometimes

I've been eatin' with a good friend who said
"A genie made me out of the earth's skin"
But in spite of her she is my birth kin
She spits me out in her surly blood rivers
All the people I'm lurkin'
Are dominions of the hot Turk dish
If the elephants be reaching for our purses
Then meet me after the world with the shivers

"What's the day?"
"What are you doing?"
"How's your food?" "How's that song?"
Man it passes right by me
It's behind me now it's gone
I can't lift you up cause my mind is tired
It's family beaches that I desire
That sacred night where we watched the fireworks
They frightened the babies and you know
They've got two flashing eyes and
If they are color blind, they make me feel
That you're only what I see sometimes
