Wikipedia has an article on
Birds
There's some things I don't have now
Some things I don't talk about
These things are between myself and I
In my thick skull the joker hides

There's consequences I'm scared to taste
Cold hard truths I can't face
These days are different than the past
Reflections change in the looking glass

And everywhere I look there's something to learn
A sliver of truth from every bridge we burn
A hatful of quarters and a naked song
Don't answer the question of where we belong

How come birds
Don't fall from the sky when they die?
How come birds
Always look for a quiet place to hide?
These words
Can't explain what I feel inside
Like birds I need a quiet place to hide
Come on, birds
Yeah, yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah
Yeah, yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah, oh

These independent moves I make
This confidence I try to fake
You can hear the beating of my heart
But not a feather falling in the dark

And everything I hear never makes any sense
Another old prophet perched on the fence
A cupful of pencils and a self help guru
Don't answer the question of what I am to you

How come birds
Don't fall from the sky when they die?
How come birds
Always look for a quiet place to hide?
These words
Can't explain what I feel inside
Like birds I need a quiet place to hide
Come on, birds
Yeah, yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah
Yeah, yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah, yeah, yeah, oh

How come birds
Don't fall from the sky when they die?
How come birds
Always look for a quiet place to hide?
These words
Can't explain what I feel inside
Like birds I need a quiet place to hide, yeah
Like birds I need a quiet place to hide, oh yeah
Like birds I need a quiet place to hide, oh, oh
Oh, birds
Yeah, yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah
Yeah, yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah
Yeah, yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah
Yeah, yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah
