Those thieving birds
Hang strung from an empty nest
This swan plagued pond
Forsaken and under whelmed

Those leaving words
Hang strong from an emptiness
Hang strong from an emptiness

Those thieving birds
Hang strung from an empty nest
Those thieving birds

This is tearing me apart
If the sun wont shine
Forever will never be fine
And underneath the hollow ground
Lies a night time sky
For only a desperate eye

When I'm paranoid
I see walls behind walls behind walls
When Im overjoyed
I see falls over falls over falls

When Im all alone
Ill be wary and careful to

Only eat with uncles
Never talk to strangers
God is in the kitchen
Faking baby dangers

Change whatever karma means
For the only things
That end never truly begin

If this streets air ain't up to par
Ill take my clothes
Ill take this strange behavior
Not only liked but loved as well

If this streets air aint up to par
I'll take my clothes
Ill take this strange behavior
Not only liked but loved as well

When I'm paranoid
I see walls behind walls behind walls
When Im overjoyed
I see falls over falls over falls

When Im all alone
Ill be wary and careful to

Only eat with uncles
Never talk to strangers
God is in the kitchen
Faking baby dangers

If this streets air aint up to par
I'll take my clothes
Ill take this strange behavior
Not only liked but loved as well

If this streets air aint up to par
I'll take my clothes
Ill take this strange behavior
Not only liked but loved as well

If this keeps tearing me apart
The walls come down
Wont stop this empty feeling
For everything apart from this

Lonely in life, dead or alive
If the truth had incursions
No more goodbyes, no more big lies
If the truth had versions
As long as you and I are together

Ill hold onto the jewelry
Like staple strapped clenched fist and tongs

Hang strung from an empty nest
Those thieving birds
[Incomprehensible] out, sing out
Those thieving birds

[Incomprehensible] out, sing out
Those thieving birds
Hang strung from an empty nest
