about

The lyric "Wise old owls" set against a background vocal singing "whoo, whoo" is totally not intentional. Or is it?

lyrics

when we realized that infinity was a numeral in ink
it was then we fell on a broken branch 'cause we stopped too long to think
on the long way down we were wondering if we'd ever climb again
we forget, we know but we'll go back to wipe the ugly stain

there's a chest in the room with the broken toys and it smells like homespun gold
we purged the bile and the vinegar that was toxic just to hold
years from now we will break the seal and we'll read and weep with joy
at the answers found in a modern sound that continues to annoy

it was a nice idea to think so
we got the best intentions never say we don't
it's always nice to feel we're going forward fast with heads on a swivel
wise old owls say the view from this level tells me something else
