Beautiful Eulogy - The Truth About Flight, Love and BB Guns lyrics

[Verse: Foreknown] With the pride of an eagle I exaggerate my wingspan, I do not fly, I soar But I'm no bird of prey, I'm simply here to play and explore I am the sparrow and it's buried in the deepest part of my being, my core I sail over the cities and towns, over the hills and the fields Taking in the sense of wonderment that it yields The thing that nobody knows is that I'd give All of my feathers to be one of the men To simply be living amongst the ground dwellers So I sail over the cities, over the shops, and the stores Watching transactions between consumers and entrepreneurs Listening to one-sided conversations on cellphones Wishing I was on the other end, instead of flying alone But still I'm flying alone, they would never embrace me Sometimes I just wish one of ‘em would just catch me and cage me They think that it's so great to be as free as a bird But if it doesn't come with love, freedom's the ugliest word And I've seen love, I know it's something that they possess When I follow them from the city to the suburban nest I see that mommy's cooking dinner and daddy's paying the bills Too busy to ever notice the little bird on the window sill I tuck my beak into my chest and turn around to fly away That's precisely when I heard a little boy's voice say [Foreknown & Catalina Bellizzi] “Little bird, little bird, sitting on the window sill Everything's gonna be fine if you just sit completely still.” [Foreknown] So still I sat, frozen. I wouldn't risk taking a breath I'd be content to stare in his eyes, until I starve to d**h He noticed me, so this is what it's like to feel free He's looking into my eyes, so this is what it's like to fly He smiles at me, so this is what it's like to feel loved Unflinchingly, I smiled back, and that's when everything went black [Outro: Catalina Bellizzi] Wish you saw, wish I was, wish you saw what I saw Wish you saw, wish I was, wish you saw what I saw Wish you saw, wish I was, wish you saw what I saw Wish you saw, wish I was, wish you saw what I saw Wish you saw, wish I was, wish you saw what I saw Wish you saw, wish I was, wish you saw what I saw
