Bird of Flight was written for a friend as a reminder that the world is not out to get you. That you can find comfort in a rocking boat. The world is a wonderful place, especially when experienced together.


Oh bird of flight I would never clip your wings just to teach you to fly
it just ain't right, and the people that do how they sleep at night
just blows my mind, cause if I was eating I would lose my appetite

Oh sailboat sail, with the wind on your back, you will float here and there
but if winds do fail, on a blustery day, you won't sink with the whales
the boat's not frail, rocking to and fro like a breath is exhaled

I'm sure you know what I mean, need stick together I'll be the threads you be the seams
oh we'd make a great team just grab ahold my hand start following
trust me, just trust me

oh and dogs alone, nothings gonna go anywhere when you howl at the moon
it's bright and blue, a million miles away, doesn't care about you
so change your tune, sing a simple song and the dogs will come to you
