The Birdman

by Stephen Daniel Ruiz

Later on we’ll decide
Whether
The float was in the feather
Or our bones were put together
Just the way we need to fly

Later on we’ll decide
Whether
The love was meant forever
Or it held our lives together
Just the way we need to die

Later on we’ll decide
Whether
The truth was put together
By the lies we told each other
Just to say that we survived

The war is all over
But your friends are gone
You’re not even sure which side
You were fighting on
You’re searchin’ for love
But there’s just no room
I see ya lookin’ through
Say whatcha gonna do

Later on we’ll decide
Whether
The days were so much better
Than the last one spent together
Was the saddest kiss goodbye

The war is all over
Now the time has come
For you to decide which side
You’re livin’ on
Your wings are ready
And the sky is blue
I see ya looking through
Say whatcha gonna do

Heaven help the Birdman
He got a lot on his mind
They say that leavin’ his nest
What got him in this mess
But it’s only for a time

Heaven help the Birdman
He got a lot on his mind
They say that leavin’ his nest
What got him in this mess
But it’s only for a time
