Birds In Row – Water Wings Lyrics

 

Water Wings Lyrics by Birds In Row

 

I drew a few steps on the first street
Jumped to a store locals named million ways to fuck it up
It seems we all wish, we all wish, we all wish, we all wish
To sell ourselves to a million offers
Dozen letters in my pocket from people I respect
And no way to write back
Oh, ‘Return to sender, attention not found’
‘Return to sender, attention not found’

Confusing loneliness for freedom
Solitude for a serum, and complaints for poetry
I fell, I failed
I betrayed the kid I kept safe from all counterfeit hopes
And all the snakes we swallow
And all the snakes we swallow

An aisle of silicon hands to shake and crush your throat
Where do we go, where do we go from here?
Water wings sell like balloon shaped hopes
Where do we go, where do we go from here?
A burden is a burden to the burdened
They’d sell the limbless a course on how to sink with elegancy

I took it back to the street
Bought whatever they had
Thought I should write down my dreams
A notebook by the bed In case I’m lucky tonight
Fantasized on how to beat regret
Fantasized on how to beat regret
Fantasized on how to beat regret
I’ll eventually crack it but you know me, I’ll just forget

And I almost find sleep
Pressing my eyes
Watching colors, summer for cold feet
Stains and tunnels
Abstraction bores me, here museums aren’t free

(I don’t want to be young) I don’t want to be young
(I don’t want to be young) I don’t want to be
Old enough to remember all the things I projected
But never touched In fear of ruining dreams I don’t possess
And these are dreams that I’ll never forgive

Water wings, water wings, water wings of lead
They are dreams that I’ll never forgive

Water wings, water wings, water wings of lead
They are dreams that I’ll never forgive

Water wings, water wings, water wings of lead
They are dreams that I’ll never forgive

Water wings, water wings, water wings of lead
