"Do the Whirlwind" as written by and Cameron Bird....
She says you've given up
Your folks told me you should be left alone
On a mountaintop,
Knocking the aeroplanes down with stones
Do the whirlwind and carry the hope that stings all night long
Don't abandon him, 'cause he quivers when he hears your song

Believe me, it's safe to see
At least be confused about right and wrong
Plan to settle down
Over the moon under the sun
Do the whirlwind and shotgun the seat that beat, that beats,
Hanging on to the one you love,
To keep keepin', sleepin', dreamin' on

Folks given up under the quivers and lines
You do the whirlwind, don't abandon
Get a handle of yourself, son

Folks given up under the quivers and lines
You do the whirlwind, don't abandon
Get a handle of yourself, son

Folks given up under the quivers and lines
You do the whirlwind, don't abandon
Get a handle of yourself, son

Folks given up under the quivers and lines
You do the whirlwind, don't abandon
Get a handle of yourself, son

Folks given up under the quivers and lines
(Do the whirlwind, do the whirlwind)
You do the whirlwind, don't abandon
(Do the whirlwind)
Get a handle of yourself, son

Folks given up under the quivers and lines
(Do the whirlwind, do the whirlwind)
You do the whirlwind, don't abandon
(Do the whirlwind)
Get a handle of yourself, son

Folks given up under the quivers and lines
(Do the whirlwind, do the whirlwind)
You do the whirlwind, don't abandon
(Do the whirlwind)
Get a handle of yourself, son

Folks given up under the quivers and lines
(Do the whirlwind)
You do the whirlwind, don't abandon
Get a handle of yourself, son

    General CommentThis is by far my favorite Architecture in Helsinki song. WHenever I'm driving and I play it, I almost crash my car because I'm dancing so much.

    love the beat but have no idea what the song means... maybe being lost and confused with life? Do the whirlwind as to lighten up? I dunno.

    like all of the best dances, I do declare that it should be made up on the spot.

    General CommentMy first ever EP. So, it's pretty special.
    And on the spine, it says "Do The Whirlwind: A Song About a Dance that Doesn't Really Exist".

    General CommentHey XavierZane, I actually crashed my car while dancing in my seat to Architecture in Helsinki! Nothing too serious, just a scrape against the guard rail that I drifted into, but I'm glad someone else can understand!

    General CommentThis song was the first one I had heard of AIH. Before this, I didn't even know the band existed. Now they are my fave band!
