"Bird Problems" as written by Patrick Carrie, Robert Maclean, Justin Entsminger and Jon Phillip....
I wound up in a cold, dark, lonely forest
With trees so high, they nearly disappeared
In the sky a small bird was flying around
The leaves on the trees were falling

I felt as though that bird seemed quite familiar
I remembered that his name was Parking Lot
Me and that bird fell beneath a tree in the snow
And died several years ago

All my friends came calling
Thinking that I'd gone lost
All of them were searching
For me and Parking Lot

We left for a house up on the hillside
With broken stairs and graffiti on the walls
The kid, that's where he lived, wrote for a magazine
And we all stood outside talking

The owner was a man from Texas
Who had left the place and brought his family
The kid extended an invitation to me
To stay for as long as I needed

After a few years, the man got homesick
He moved back in and started cleaning up
And even though I was never lost with Parking Lot
I was glad to have friends who'd come find me

When all my friends came calling
Thinking that I had gone lost
I was simply sleeping in a parking lot

When all my friends came searching
Looking for my ghost
I was lost inside a dream
In a parking lot

    General CommentThe song is named Bird Problems is because when Limbeck was on tour with The Format, before The Format's album Dog Problems came out, Robb thought it would be funny to have the song come out on Let Me Come Home before The Format's album came out, and make it look like The Format copied them. But then there were too many songs on Let Me Come Home about parking lots, so they decided to save Bird Problems for their next album.
