This is a DEMO!


I ain't waiting for the sun
It comes and goes just as it pleases
No one tells you how it's done
For me it flows and then it freezes

I'm a long way from home
But the birds here sing
as if they had a reason
You might say I'm alone
but I like it here and
wouldn't think of leaving

Sometime it's better not to know
The language everyone is speaking
When I can't tell what they say
it doesn't matter if they're freaking

When my minds on channel 3
everything is salt and pepper
It's the way I like to be
please don't mess with my antenna

It's a rare state of mind
and the women yell but
still the birds they sing
In the land of the blind
the naked man is king

How Things Work Seattle, Washington

How Things Work is a rock band that uses horns rather than guitars. We play catchy post-punk art rock songs about happiness in foreign cities, birds that fly late at night, the color Red, and the very loud neighborhood that is Tom’s Head.
