Birds fall from the window ledge above mine
Then they flap their wings at the last second

You see birds fall from the window ledge above mine
Then they flap their wings at the last second
I can see their dead weight just dropping like stones
Or small loaves of bread past my window all the time

But unless I get up walk across the room and peer down below
I don't see their last second curves toward a horizontal flight
All these birds just falling from the ledge like stones

Now due to a construct in my mind
That makes their falling and their flight
Symbolic of my entire existence

It becomes important for me to get up and see
Their last second curves toward flight
It's almost as if my life will fall unless I see their ascent

Mr. Mastodon farm, Mr. Mastodon farm
Cuts swatches out of all material
Mr. Mastodon farm, Mr. Mastodon farm
Cuts swatches out of all material

Birds fall from the window ledge above mine
Then they flap their wings at the last second
I said birds fall from the window ledge above mine
Then they flap their wings at the last second

But unless I get up walk across the room and peer down below
I won't see their last second curves toward a, a horizontal flight
All these birds just falling from the ledge like stones

Now due to a construct in my mind
That makes their falling and their flight
Symbolic of my entire existence

It becomes important for me to get up and see
Their last second curves toward flight
It's almost like my life will fall
My life will fall unless I see their ascent
Oh yeah, oh yeah, all right

Mr. Mastodon farm, Mr. Mastodon farm
Cuts swatches out of all material
Mr. Mastodon farm, Mr. Mastodon farm
Cuts swatches out of all material, everybody c'mon

Mr. Mastodon farm, Mr. Mastodon farm
Cuts swatches out of all material
Mr. Mastodon farm, Mr. Mastodon farm
Cuts swatches out of all material

Mr. Mastodon farm, Mr. Mastodon farm
Cuts swatches out of all material
Mr. Mastodon farm, Mr. Mastodon farm
Cuts swatches out of all material

Mr. Mastodon farm, Mr. Mastodon farm
Cuts swatches out of all material
