lyrics

The last pigeon in America stands next to me in the Wall Street Cantina, and bobs at a nacho that fell on the floor with the grace of a gray-winged ballerina. And all of the faces that form the lunch crowd are moving their lips and I'm sure that it's loud, and I wonder if anyone has even a hunch just what this pigeon has paid for this lunch. The manager of the Cantina does payroll in a closet stocked with Corona, and the hours are long and her boyfriend's an ass and she's thinking about moving back to Arizona. And the unhappy patrons and twelve-hour days are costing her more than this goddamn job pays, and a vicodin drowns in her unsweetened tea, bringing her post-lunch tranquility. The pigeons have all left the country, or at least they've stopped hanging around the Cantina. Some think it's the weather, some say it's the food, some claim it's the lure of a distant marina. And as the last pigeon steps out to take flight, the manager's day is absorbed by the night, and the voices of customers bounce off the walls, confessions and punch lines and quick cell phone calls.

about

Milk Carton Superstars Orlando, Florida

Milk Carton Superstars make songs out of guitars, drums and some reasonable words. Later Never Now is their new album.
The band formed in 2007 when old friends Guy Larmay (guitars, bass) and Jim Myers (vocals, drums) began writing songs together again for the first time. Based in Orlando, they're often joined on stage by bassist Jeff Boyce and in the studio by producer Justin Beckler.
