"Liquid Bird" as written by and Richard Greentree Robin Jones....
Is this the legend of the liquid brain
That crossed the funk muscleman who died in the rain?
He never guessed that the world would end,
Crawling on the beach from the sea to the land

How far can a man go
Crawling on his elbow?
Falling through his window?
How far can a man go
Crawling on his elbow?
Falling through his window?

Is this the legend of the liquid brain?
You're just a turtle, spinning in space
You're just a turtle, spinning in space
You're just a turtle, spinning in space
(And when you return) with black packages of stolen goods
If you don't give them weapons, how you gonna get your food?
We never guessed that the world would end,
Drinking on the beach, and we're driving on land

How far can a man go
Crawling on his elbows?
Falling through his windows?
How far can a man go
Crawling on his elbows?
Falling through his windows?
Ah ah...

Is it true what they say
About life when you're dead?
('Cause I'm going away) Is it true what they say
About the curtains that close when you're going away?
Is it true what they say
About life when you're dead?
('Cause I'm going away) Is it true what they say
About the curtains that close when you're going away?

    General CommentAnother great one. The lyrics are obviously a bit...obscure, like all of their songs, really. The feel I get from it is desperation and a lack of power over your own situation, and how you respond to it. Do you fight to the end or do you let it all go?
