"Bluebirds" as written by and Adam Green....
Bluebirds are so natural
I want to buy them for my friends.
Bluebirds are so dismal
And I want to trade mine in.
And I don't go out for brunch
And I don't go out for cunts
And I don't go out for months
Without my Barnes and Noble credit card.

Cleaning out my wisdom teeth
I found a diamond in my gum.
Cleaning out the kitchen
I found a spoon that play the drums.
And despite the things they say
I gave it up that day
I'd never go that way
Unless your daddy nailed me to the cross.

Suicide, suicide,
Leaning out to everyone that hides.
Breaking the chains on the things down low.
Where it stops I don't know how that goes.

Bluebirds are so natural
I want to buy them for my friends.
Bluebirds are so dismal
And I want to trade mine in.
And despite the things they say
I gave them up that day
I'd never go that way
Unless your daddy nailed me to the cross,
Your daddy nailed me to the cross.

    General Commenti think its about hiding out and not wanting to deal with the world

    just hiding in books and solitude and random activities and self examination

    General CommentTrue... it's a huge metaphor for a kind of angst driven depression - bluebirds, dismal and suicide all point to this. But what did he give up?

    General CommentI think this is about being underwhelmed and depressed with one's existence. If you look at everything with grandiose expectations, you're going to be dissappointed - which would explain the change of heart in the bluebirds verse. I guess to me it's about not being able to find something to genuinely want or care about.

    General CommentGuys.. Bluebirds are the symbol for happiness worldwide.
    Now read the lyrics again. Makes more sense?

    He want's to give his friends happiness.. And he can be sad until they are happy.

    General CommentBluebirds are oxy 30s (though more commonly referred to just as "blues"). He wants to buy them for his friends, but then they become so dismal he wants to trade them in. And he doesn't go out for months without his Barnes
