lyrics

I'm on my back and laughing
I can hardly get through the verse
Bleed out.
You're very important.
I can hardly think of anything worse
Checked out of a checked out culture
I'm locked in and I feel alright.
Happiness is a real tall order.
My kind's in short supply.

Gone are the words that are on my lips.
Gone are the only words on my lips.
Gone are the words that are on my lips.

Trailing off. A careful thought. A lashing tong.

I smile it's a stupid question
All I don't know can't hurt
I don't see why it's very important.
I can hardly think of anything worse
Throw away your throwaway culture
I'm pulling off to the side.
Take Burroughs as a prime example
My kind's in short supply

Gone are the words that are on my lips.
Gone are the only words on my lips.
Gone are the words that are on my lips.

Trailing off. A careful thought. A lashing tong.

Alright. We're all alright.
And I can't go to sleep at night
Ok. We're all ok
and I'm...
Still awake...

I'm on my back and laughing
I can hardly get through the verse
Bleed out.
You're very important.
I can hardly think of anything worse

about

The Falling Birds Brooklyn, New York

The Falling Birds have a simple concept: Write songs with clear foundations in blues and folk, and throttle them with punk rock snarl. Their style is equal parts careful musicianship and wild indifference.
