​Near Death Experience Experience

This song is by Andrew Bird and appears on the album Break It Yourself (2012).

Used to be like toffee in a kitten's teeth
Used to build air raid shelters out of sticks and leaves
And spend the whole day underneath

Used to be like copper
Pliable but strong
Used to smile and nod and say you're right be polite
When you know that everybody's wrong
Know that everybody's wrong
Know that everybody's wrong

So you dare the plane to crash
Redeem the miles for cash when it starts to dive
And we'll dance like cancer survivors
Like you're grateful simply to be alive
Dare the plane to crash
Redeem the miles for cash
And we'll dance like cancer survivors
Like the prognosis was that you should've died

No there's nothing wrong
There's nothing wrong when it starts to dive
And we'll dance like cancer survivors
Like we're grateful simply to be alive
