about

In honor of the third annual Finger Lakes Thaw festival, and the global onset of COVID-19, Noon Fifteen presents "Thaw," a mini-suite about winter dangers at home and abroad. The song moves through four seasons of soul, metal, progressive rock, and New Orleans funk.

lyrics

I.
Trapped
At the peak of a mountain
What goes up
Doesn't always come down

Salt and sand
On an icicle fountain
Man, I'm a thief,
A joker, a clown

I bet this place ain't up to code
This time we drew the shortest straw
We're locked inside our bleak abode
Until the thaw
Trapped until the thaw

Slide
Drift into the highway
Where you stop
Isn't what you meant
You had your chance
Now we'll try it my way
This is our winter
Of discontent

I bet this place ain't up to code
This time we drew the shortest straw
We're locked inside our bleak abode
Until the thaw
Trapped until the thaw

II.
Flying high in the turbulent sky
Don't wanna die, just wanna get home
One more try
To fly home

When we fly, are we free from the eye
Of the TV guy who rules the land?
Understand
We can't stand him

But we fly
Just to try
To fly home

III.
(instrumental)

IV.
I bet this place ain't up to code
This time we drew the shortest straw
We're locked inside our bleak abode
Until the thaw
Trapped until the thaw
