about

The fifth 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

The timid opens up his heart and plays the part of greed.
He's rotten with ambition.
The likes of which, I've never seen.
And "Baby!" He cries. "Baby!" At the orgy...
I wonder who he's talking to and why he still tries to be true when...
He should be dancin' like an Indian who wasn't fooled by peace.
And coming up for air, there stands his desperate lady.
The other one's still down there wearing holes into the sheets, when...
She should be dancin' like an elephant who sold its own ivory.
Oh, sit her down and tell her something sweet...
These arms that hold you, soon will set you free.
Just stick your thumb out as you go.
There's always people on that road
Who've got the time if a ride's all you need.
Those miles that slow you, soon will pass with ease.

The feeble opens up his mouth and talks a bit on soul.
He slept with something missing and he woke up feeling whole.
"Oh, save me!" He cried. "Save me!"
And the sky began to roll.
It opened up and swallowed him.
I guess he should have known...
He should have been dancin' like a skeleton with skin still on its knees.
Well he should have been dancin' cause there's a billion stars he can't even see.
Thanks to the light coming off this city.
That longing, soon is all that there will be...

These arms that hold you, soon will set you free.
