Sometimes you are the flight of the birds
And other times, you're watching the flight of the birds
Sometimes you are the flight of the birds
And other times, you're watching the flight of the birds

If I could crawl into the wall
And face all in my guts
Walk them in the dark
And feed them to my young
I'd say "Baby bird, baby bird, wake up it is day
Baby bird, what's the word? You won't eat what I prey?"
Well this, it comes from me
And you, you are of me too
So what, I ask, is the dilemma?
Please do eat me through
For sacrifice is my final lesson
This is what I say
I give myself for you to eat
So you may live another day
Some days you wanna hollow away and hollow in your egg
Other days you feel like hatching and falling out of your nest
Some days you don't admit to your inexplicable loneliness
And coping with yourself is the only mask in hand that might fit
In one way, I'm coordinated enough to lead thee
Another way, I'm hungry
Who the fuck's gonna feed me?
You contradicted feathered inhuman being, leave me
Wishless, living no hard, giving cold start shivers, be
Free!

Sometimes you are the flight of the birds
And other times, you're watching the flight of the birds
Sometimes you are the flight of the birds
And other times, you're watching the flight of the birds

Go pour a drink, go read a book, put if off for a day
Go march around in circles in the back when you're wide awake
Go think about what you'd rather do and pass it up again
Go ahead, just fall into the back of the ___? draft wind
Thanks for watching yourself
Well are you watching yourselves?
Thanks for watching yourself
Just for watching ourselves
Just for watching yourself
Well are you watching yourselves?
Thanks for watching yourself

It's a life of tree branches and telephone poles
Baby bird, don't know why
A hell of an old soul
Feel the vibrations of conversations, cheek to cheek
The monarchy of eavesdropping pigeon feet
A life operated around awkward dates and times
Migratory patterns and these tattered wings of mine
I'm flattered that you think I look brilliant in flight
I must have two or three billion affiliates alike
Huh, I love hearing it, though
But it's steering my growth
You look at me in flight, and I appear in the flow
(Sometimes)
Ha! I say fuck the bird's eye view
Tell me a good perspective of the worms I chew
Things that you learned when I flew
Wings that would ___? with a solid flight crew
Don't be unnerved
I'm not really like you
I like you, but I walk by day and fly the night through

Sometimes you are the flight of the birds
And other times you're watching the flight of the birds
Sometimes you are the flight of the birds
And other times you're watching the flight of the birds

Make a mistake or do it right
It's up to you
This wing-flapper's sacrifice is nothing new
I'd shake your hand and feather-dust New Amsterdam
But I'm just busy right now cancelling all my plans
Thanks for watching yourself
Well are you watching yourselves?
Thanks for watching yourself
Just for watching ourselves
Just for watching yourself
Well are you watching yourselves?
Thanks for watching yourself
Thanks for watching myself

Give it up to all innovators of flight
Starting with the short-tailed albatross
King rail
Bloody sheldrake
Stormy petrels
Mallards
Blue-footed booby
The shoveler, baby
Common loon
Sandhill crane
Don't forget the great auk
Even though y'all extinct, I still love ya, baby
This song is from the album "This And Of That".
