"Cat Piano" as written by Sindri Mar Sigfusson and Sindri Mar Sigfusson....
Half remembered
Drunken nights
The sun stayed up like
A diamond in the sky

I woke up
Where have you been?
I know I'm bored
And my blood is pretty thin

But some nights I swear
There was magic in the air
A fox invites me to part from loneliness
Wolves seem to pick a scent of an owl in my head

Your head's in headlock
You in trouble again?
Now you've lost
Another friend

You felt something
But you're never feeling loved
When that'll bring men
You're the one that's freaking lost

    General Commentthis is really wrong but the only correction i can make for certain is that the last line is "you're the one i'm thinking of"

    General CommentYou felt something
    But you never feel enough
    When I break men
    You're the one that I'm thinking of

    Woooooo....

    General Commenti'm 99% sure it's "Wolf's in the basement"
    also, it's "Owl Girl, where have you been"

    Sindri mentions owls and even more specifically, the "Owl Girl," in a lot of their songs. Plus, "I woke up" wouldn't work because if you listen closely, there is no "P" sound at the end of that word, and you can faintly hear the "L" sound in its place.

    General Commentowl girl, where have you been

    fox bite me apart from loneliness
    wolves in the basement
    owls in my head

    what does the "break men" line mean?

    General CommentHmm, the only explanation I can think of for the 'break men' line is that he's gay, but he really has feelings for a girl. I do not know.

    But this really is a beautiful song. I like the atmosphere the harmonica adds, and it's amazing how there's this sort of harmony when he says 'head' and 'of' that stretches out the word with (I think) a glottal stop. Well, whatever it is, I love it.

    General CommentI don't think it's "break men." I'm pretty sure it's "break out."

    General Comment^well I strongly disagree it doesn't sound like "out". perhaps he means, that when he gets drunk because his had a bad argument with his girl and he then gets into fights with random guys at the bar. because he wouldn't dare hit his girl. in other words he's projecting his anger against her somewhere else.

    but I must admit it could possibly be something else. the lines at the end are hard to hear.

    as for the suggestions by everybody else good job. thanks for your inputs. :)

    oh and Joshcuba he uses that "Owl girl" expression in "I sing I swim" as well.

    General Commentthis is how I hear it:

    Half-remembered
    Drunken nights
    The sun stayed up like
    a diamond in the sky

    I woke up - where have you been?
    I know I'm bored
    and my blood is pretty thin
    But some nights I swear
    There was magic in the air:

    A fox invites me to part from loneliness
    Wolfes seem to create scent
    An owl in my head

    Your head's in headlock
    Are you in trouble again?
    Now you've lost another friend

    You felt something
    But you're never feeling loved
    Wind that'll break men
    You're the one that freaking lost

    My InterpretationThat last line sounds like "break down", even more so if you listen to live versions on youtube.
