Dead Bird


dead bird dont be so cruel to me

the sidewalks were nearly empty

then you fell down from sky to ground

your beauty lay upon the frozen earth


dead bird

dead bird.


now i cant sleep and i cant think straight

i wait and wait and wait 

for the next dead bird to come to town

with wings that once flew round and round the earth 


dead bird

dead bird.


the stairs were wonderful and blue

littered with pieces of you

(feathers even broken too)

i wonder, dead bird were you

beautiful since birth?


dead bird
