Lyrics

To do tricks and flips like an acrobat
To roll around on hands and feet was a dream he had
How they all just laughed
You silly bird
Wings can’t do cartwheels

Far away lived a nightingale
She sang her tune but to no avail
And so she lives in solitude
What’s in a song
When no one is listening

When the world spins backwards
Upside down is outward
Every thought is fleeting absurd
False gods are we
Wingnuts and thieves
Are we what we believe
Forgive my lies
I’m human in size
A hero but still a thief
What price for victory
For you to only see
What I wanted you to see

Jezebel slayed a thousand men
She was a plague for whom they all gave in
The bitter taste of victory
Sat on her tongue like the sting of bees

When the world spins backwards
Upside down is outward
Every thought is fleeting absurd
False gods are we
Wingnuts and thieves
Are we what we believe
Forgive my lies
I’m human in size
A hero but still a thief
What price for victory
For you to only see
What I wanted you to see
