about

The sixth track off the Andy the Doorbum Double LP "The Man Killed The Bird, And With The Bird He Killed The Song, And With The Song, Himself."

lyrics

When you smashed that pane of glass out with your fist
And held the pieces in your hand like they were infants
Then you blew them from your palm and made a wish
As the dust flew in your eyes and started bleeding.
"To be beautiful," with every drop that hit
Your smooth wrist that never saw a day of labor
Where no chain nor shackle had ever been hitched.
Oh, to have that wind be blowing in your favor...

Then a man with crooked limbs came to your aid
And he carried you despite his painful Rickets.
Leading off only one set of tracks were made
To where he washed you underneath a frozen spigot
And with every piece of glass that he pulled out
He recited that you loved him or you didn't.
Suddenly that's what his help became about...
To be beautiful despite a poor condition.
