lyrics

a bird flew into the window today
I sense an omen, but then again
I'm always seeing signs that don't exist

a bird flew into the schoolroom today
if I could cry freedom with every tendon
I'd be borne away upon the wind

an ember from the fire drifted down onto the carpet
I wasn't quick enough to catch it
amidst the dancing flames
you could hear the whispered names
of different birds, and the sounds of their songs

the clouds outside the window are pulling faces at me
they are drunk, they are ugly, they intimidate me
I sensed the omen as a cloud stepped on my shadow
it's going to be another long year
there's already some grey in my beard
and someone else is drinking my beer
it's going to be another long year
