about

A force for continuity on The Language of Birds is the HH solid-state amplifier. Pink Floyd used the HH in the film Live at Pompeii, and it became a signature sound for Marc Bolan of T. Rex and for Daniel Ash of Bauhaus. A rarity on American soil, the amp was imported from Glasgow especially for this project, and its buzzy distortion enhances the slight punk sarcasm of “Sad”.

LK: “Sad” is about being betrayed by your friends, and you’re not mad, you’re just…disappointed. It’s my only guitar solo on the album, and I guess you could say it sounds kind of Neil Jung-ian.

lyrics

SAD

Same room
Same head
The bottle now
Is dead

Boxes in the flame
And I'm searching just the same
And there's a changing wind
So don't kill your friend
You don't kill your friend

'Cause it's sad
And somebody's glad

Same body
Same face
Same head
Gone and dropped you dead

And the gloves are shed
So don't kill your friend
And the gloves are shed
So don't kill your friend
You don't kill your friend
