lyrics

He said, "You've been naked a long time"
If only he knew I'd been bare my whole life
It causes a thick skin with infinite open wounds

Makeshift waterfalls shake off the dead of winter
I soak my boot in an imagined creek
Staring at disillusioned ice peaks
Who had no knowledge of their temporary existence

Little bird fly away
Catch my heart on your wings
Rest assured, it is never the master who's pulling the strings
Sigh, and catch my breath lifting you up to the sky
Never half-hearted, never a reason why

All of the vases, yes all of the vases
They are shattered

I thought I was a poet once
And when I did every word that dripped from my tongue rang true to every ear that heard them
Mine.
See I'm the protagonist, yes I'm the protagonist
My antagonist's antagonist thinks I'm the antagonist...
But I'm above all that narcissism
Fuck all those narcissist anyway
They're horrible cause I said so

Little bird fly away
Catch my heart on your wings
Rest assured, it is never the master who's pulling the strings
Sigh, and catch my breath lifting you up to the sky
Never half-hearted, never a reason why

All the vases are shattered
We could fail to fix them with some super glue
Why not try make something new?

Little bird fly away
Catch my heart on your wings
Rest assured, it is never the master who's pulling the strings
Sigh, and catch my breath lifting you up to the sky
Never half-hearted, never a reason why
