"Abominable Snow" as written by and Thorburn....
Rack of lamb of God
We serve you instead in a bed
That's sweet to sleep forever
In outer space

Track saquatches
Through the snowy climbs of Canada
Are you an upright bear?
Are you even there?
Do you exist?

So sexy
So cold
So british

Try like hell
Explore anew in the carousel
Things don't change
Things don't change
Love everyone
As long as everyone's to blame

Space space space is the place
And the sun is fun fun fun
Severed body won't run
So take your sweet time

Frozen heads up in outer space
In a box
They crash back to earth
Crash back to earth

and they've brought
back with moon rocks

I think I spotted a yeti
Yet I didn't die
I'm not sure
Was it fur?
Was it alive?
They're coming home
But, my how the tundra has grown
Since you've been gone
Everyone's gone

Bye x 60

Rack of lamb of God
We serve you instead outta' bed
That's sweet to sleep forever
It's sweet to sleep forever
Except in outer space

Track saquatches
Through the snowy climbs of Canada
Are you an upright bear?
Are you even there?
Do you exist?
Do you exist?

    General CommentThey played it when I saw them, too! I was so so excited, and it was kind of nice because I was pretty much the only Islands fan there. Nick noticed and gave me five. It was pretty sweet.

    General CommentIm not sure about your spelling of climbs jones, but maybe I misunderstood it.

    One thing that is definitly a correction "Explore anew in carousel" should be "Explode or renew in carousel", LOGAN'S RUN movie reference, f*ckin radical movie, check it out!!

    General Commentthis is not by Islands, the unicorns recorded this song live for an XFM radio broadcast as well as the songs "Sea Ghost" and "Les Os" and all three of these are aaammmaaaazzziiinnnggg recordings.

    but, the islands do play this song live sometimes, and th' corn gangg did sometimes aswell
