    great dark birds

    self medication has some risks
    we know them all too well
    but news of side effects
    isn't based on facts
    but damage still exists
    in plastic bags
    underneath the steps

    through curtains through the glass
    dark woods hide dangers
    though wind brings fragrances
    of something left behind
    something that now draws
    a flock of great dark birds.

    play a line of chords
    and aim it at the sky
    shut your eyes don't cry
    this is a lullaby
    this is a song
    with words of love
    for what went wrong

    the blurring blacktop splits
    on the white dotted line
    racing from the past or onward
    towards a dream or maybe not
    but faster faster faster
    slumping on the pedal...
    is that all she's got

    mmmmmmm mmmmmmm mmmmmmm

    sleepy little eyes sleepy little nose
    sleepy little mouth that tries to smile
    sleepy little fingers slip like melting snow
    off of the steering wheel as eyelids close
    with all the needles drifting
    downward on the dials


    self medication has some risks
    we know them all too well
    but news of side effects
    isn't based on facts
    but the damage no one sees
    we find beside the road
    tangled steel against a tree

    play a line of chords
    and aim it at the sky
    shut your eyes don't cry
    this is a lullaby
    this is a song
    with words of love
    for what went wrong.

    through the curtains of dense leaves
    dark woods shelter what remains
    the wind brings troubled fragrances
    of something beyond words
    something that now draws
    a flock of great dark birds
