"bird of cuzco" as written by and Nina Nastasia....
Oh bird
You must be starving
From your flight so long
The wind, the way it was blowing
I feel lonely not to have come
There the pounding of rain has flooded the dam
I can offer you my room you can sleep it off

Oh, let me take care
Oh, let me be near
Do you
Mean to be saying
To me through a song
Be pleased
For everything's changing
Be not angry I have returned
How I tire of waking from the dream
Are we wired to be sad and wanting
Oh, let me sing
Oh, I love to sing

I will lie here awhile in the dark
Let me lie for a while just thinking in the dark
Oh, leave me here
Oh, let me see clear

    General Commentuah no one commented this one yet? my favorite of the album...

    The meaning seems pretty clear, to me it's about a friend/loved one that travelled for such long time and now has finally returned... the singer wants to give him a home, a place to be. Some things have changed in the mean time, and the traveller tells the singer to not be angry or bothered, because life is in a mutation form all along, people never remain the same and those differences seem so more obvious when people away from each other for a long time. Not sure what the ending means though, suggestions would be appreciated
