Every time I look up at that blurry sun
All I think about are bodies floating up
Everybody ought to get that special glance
AC gets existential. Centipede Hz marks the group’s ninth release, so it’s no wonder that their lyrics are much more profound than the nonsensical, albeit poetic psychedelia that can be found on earlier releases like 2004’s “Sung Tongs”. In Monkey Riches, Portner denounces material wealth and elaborates on his search for nirvana. He also stresses his appreciation for his fellow man, stating that the idea of heaven should be all-inclusive. Animal Collective’s altruistic attitude and their refusal to accept the standards by which contemporary society lives are the keystones of the album.
