"The Pot Bellied Goddess" as written by and Schuylar Croom Steve Bache....
The birds have all flown underground
The trees bend down to touch the sky
Silence is now the only sound
We wait for pigs not birds to fly

They had a lot to say, had a lot to say
They had a lot to say, a lot to say

What is wrong with the birds?
Please, Buffy tell me what it is
They don't sing anymore
And it gets harder every year
To remind them of the tune
We have to help them soon
Will you help me sing?

We are the birds
We know the words
But we just don't want to sing

Well, I think I overheard their plan
When I was walking all alone
They took a vow to sing again
When the cow jumps over the moon

They had a lot to say, a lot to say
They had a lot to say, a lot to say

What is wrong with the birds?
Please, Buffy tell me what it is
They don't sing anymore
And I don't think they will again
Can you teach the pigs the tune?
So we can hear it soon
Will you help them sing?

We are the birds
We know the words
But we just don't want to sing

They had a lot to say, a lot to say
They had a lot to say, a lot to say
They had so much to say, so much to say
They had so much to say, so much to say

It's hard to walk with shaking legs
It's hard to talk with shattered teeth
Well, it's getting late for birds like me
My stomach sings, I'll have my words

    General CommentI think the title is about how there is no such thing as perfection because goddesses are supposed to be the images of beauty and perfection and theres a pot belly on it so i guess it just means theres nothing perfect..thats the only interpretation i have

    General CommentI love this song. The lyrics are so thought provoking.
    But in the first verse doesn't it say

    "We wait for pigs, not birds to fly." ?

    General Commenthis world has been turned upside-down

    i dont think "pot-bellied" is supposed to be meant as an imperfection, but as simply beautiful in itself

    General Commentbirds represent christians. christians are supposed to set an example and have people look up and see something in them such as seeing birds fly. but in this day in age every year more things start becoming more acceptable and the world is going down. but the birds arent out speaking the gospel and they are even starting to accept and think things previosuly looked at to be wrong as ok which is why its getting harder every year. they still know the words and know the things are wrong but they dont want to speak out on it because they are scared.
