Biography

FLIGHT (formerly known as Flatbear led by Jentri Colello)

Here's why [Jentri Colello] stirred up all that talk among local writers, record-store clerks and show-regulars this year. Colello and band actually know how to create a mood with grace and starkness." -- The Onion A.V. Club

"One of the best things brewing in Wisconsin local music...I trust their success to continue well beyond the boundaries of the state line."
-- Muzzle of Bees

"Colello's crew builds the dramatic arc of each of her moody folk-rock tunes with startling control."

Flying Days: Entire Album Lyrics

Written By: Flatbear

DISCO BALL his hellos are solely enterprising/wish I didnt know/but its not so surprising/outfox her love/he walks her through a pinball game/shell learn to shove/shell make the lions come home tame/its true you plead/you send a shiver cause I know you lied to please/I light a match and watch the road/shell sing her vow with Mary Poppins in her head/he dies to wed/Sister Maria how she bled/this blue light is making me feel like I cant take it/it turns out, you tuned out/and I cant see you when you run/my lazybird/I feel the lightning in your call/your every word fed me up a disco ball RATTLED focus alone you know theyll do you wrong/deep in your mind youre old and so far gone/when you get off too easy and take her by the hand/youre all on your own this time/settle for what we can her bed is made/in it for greater good or so they say/as you get off too easy and take him by the hand youre out/you settle/you cant believe our wrong/so rattled you cant conceive our sound/focus alone you know theyll do you right/deep in your mind youre always far too bright/you get off too easy and take her by the hand/youre out/settle for what you can her bed is made/here for greater good or so they say/as you run them into the ground/brazen all around/youre all on your own this time/I'll see you tomorrow/don't just fall away/I'll see you tomorrow let's not just fall away/as you take your fire and run/take your fire and go/take all your fire and go/you settle you cant believe our wrong/so rattled you cant conceive our song/you settle you cant believe our wrong/so rattled you cant conceive our sound/our sound FLYING DAYS I'll wait for your song/when it takes far too long/youre good with your toys/with grease on your face and hands still just a boy/but youre a big Italian man/wont you laugh a little/you wont say why/wont you dance with her/your life/I watch for your eyes/from the reds to the whites/I cant leave your bed/cause that truck hit you pretty damn hard just like they said/but youre still on the wayside/trying to feel a little/you wont say why your flying days are gone to waste/I cant understand/whatd they do to your hands/speak up dont be shy/Roman Catholic basilica is now off your mind/and your big red balloons are all but slain and buried/you wont say why theyre painted all the same/these days BELLOWS this whole town is under water/only kids have found a door/think they'll be the ones to show us how we used to swim before/take your lover to a high ground/leave your china all behind/there's no time to think of feeling/they give us one last chance to fight/so dont cry cry cause your jetskis are gone/dont cry cry/your sole feelings are gone/did you think he would not find you/did you think of other things/its not news til it's about you/you and battled choirs sing/all they want is to be riding/this heavy weather keeping on/two by two they carry bellows/another way you're reaching out/so dont cry cry/his soft feeling/you sole lady are wrong/dont cry cry/you sit alone/were wrong/dont cry cry/we come around/well be back here/dont cry til youre sure theyre gone MICE take another look/hang it up and well see/youre moving like a poltergeist/lay back/way way back/theyll find you in that briar patch/I cant say why youre so afraid/but youd best stand tall when you feel this way/I cant be all they want me to be/so well let them go one by one again/watch them fall back/watch them trickle down your face/theres mouse tracks inside my mouth/we could sing them a song or two/we could build them a house or two/cause they know too much NY do you know that I know that youre in love with someone else/its alright because youre human just like everybody else/but should we still sail away/called my friend up on the phone/he said theres nothing left to be/everybodys too afraid to leave the house and go to sea/so will we just wash away/we could put an end to this/make a promise here and now/or we could leave and see the city/new york city up and down/or we could just walk away SEA OF MONSTERS toss it upward/choose to shoot it like I did before/seeing all our hues/not as sick and stupid as I was before/but I still cant believe/still cant believe that I still can breathe around you/in this sea of monsters/think maybe we could make a getaway/cause you say I cant love/candlelight love is why I run away/but I still cant believe/still cant believe that I still cant breathe around you/you say you will/so I leave my kind/will you take my hand if I take your side/its been a long long time/will I see him here again/had it about to boil into her past/will he give her words up/just enough believing to see her last/you say you will/so I leave my kind/will you take my hand if I take your side/so you say we cant look down/as our feet are off the ground/but we beat back/we say what we can/but to say we cant decide/as we tear it out of mind/you take back all the life in my hands/together we made this blood WAR, IN SEQUENCE so white/too bright/we slow down/but the
