Lyrics

Birdshead
Grow on my shoulder
And when I'm older
Wither and die

Birdshead
On the horizon
I've got my eyes on
Some other sky

Birdshead
Under volcanos
What does the day know?
Why does it try?

Birdshead
With your round black shiny eye
Birdshead
What do you know 'bout the sky?

Birdshead
Tiny white fingers
Archaeology lingers
Under my eye

Birdshead
With your round black shiny eye
Birdshead
Silhouetted on the sky

Birdshead
Grow on my shoulder
And when I'm older
Wither and di
