I was lonely one day out, viewing you
You were, feathered high and unusual
I pretended to fly - it was amusing you
You flew closer, it was through for you
and whether you took my keys,
the devil and my queen to be
it was the fall and im six feet over tomorrow
'anywhere but here' but i drowned in my sorrows
i fell six stories down, lucid within the river
but the sun and moon made me quiver
and from the nameless nothing
to tell you the truth i wish this was something
and i knew this madness was shrewd
i lay here like a fool
and i shouldve known all along
i knew all along.
will you listen to my birdsong
