We exorcised the weekend now all the demons can't play but they snuck into Thursday
Looking out for panthers from the road again but didn't they pass a long time ago?
This line highlights Animal Collective’s potential to spin the straw of language into vivid imagery with great ease. In fact, all of the lyrics in “Father Time” read like a dreamlike Kafkaesque journey through the spectrum of time. To make matters weirder, Portner tops the song off with an allusion to a good ol' fashioned exorcism. Through this, he stresses how youthful nature and curiosity are, like hellbound demons, always inside us, and don’t have to waver with age.
