Okkervil River is an indie rock band from Austin, Texas. Formed in 1998, the band takes its name from a short story by Russian author Tatyana Tolstaya. They self-released their first album, Stars Too Small to Use, which led them to the South by Southwest music festival. After recording their first album in a garage, they signed with Jagjaguwar. Okkervil River continued by releasing four more albums, including the critically lauded concept album Black Sheep Boy. more »

Throttling, hurtling, just going, going
And hurting, going
But it's gone, it's going
And not knowing where, in the ground or in the air
A golden stare, whatever
It's going
I stop by the lake of strangled crane
It was the color of copper
I saw the crane operator
Heard the operator swallow
Saying it looks like rain
And I had the operation because steady was a doctor
And I was in pain
Freedom or whatever
Whatever you call it
It's a stairway or a slow ride
It's reality or a land slide
I heard the bartender died
Of a broken heart
And a shattered pelvis
He was buried in Kansas
It was part of a promotion
They were trying to undermine
The confidence of the tumor
The confidence of the tumor
The confidence of the tumor
The confidence of the tumor
The confidence
I saw a beautiful drummer
Get the whip of a spider
Well, I wished I could've saved her
I saw a little boy in serious danger
Of getting old
He was strapped, sitting shotgun
In a cutlass cruiser, cruiser
Well, I'm on the street
And some say it ain't my year
I hear the little voice of love, love, love, love, love
Get my chance
I fear the hunger coming fast
Part of the world like mad
'
And I don't keep them all, ended up all better
Slapped some kind of sense in this
That passes between us
But that someone else said
But that someone else's
But that someone else said
I last saw you, Franking, walking that Hampshire due
Would've shot 5000 feet under the sky
We'll work it out, too
I bet you'll express, rocking or whatever
Feel so far away
I got my old typewriter right out '
I got the last stock filing and they forgot the word
Well, they burned my trailer
And they're on my tail '
I walk Frankie, I walk Frankie, I walk Frankie
I walk Frankie, I walk Frankie, I walk Frankie
I walk Frankie, I walk Frankie, I walk Frankie
I walk Frankie, I walk Frankie, I walk Frankie
I walk Frankie, I walk Frankie, I walk Frankie
I walk Frankie, I walk Frankie, I walk Frankie
I walk Frankie, I walk Frankie, I walk Frankie
I walk Frankie, I walk Frankie, I walk Frankie
