"Birds" as written by and Watts/gryskiewicz/golla/vasoli/schmutz....
Spend the day in your bed taking medicine
If that's the only thing that keeps you calm
Well one of these days you've gotta get up
And get out

There is a purpose for all of my sitting here
If you can't understand well you could
If you could just stretch your attention span
Now, for this song

I hope that this is what you will want
Cause my throat will be the first thing to go
And I hope that some day I'll hear everyone say

[Chorus]
Is that all you've got
Turn it up keep it coming
Cause I've got the words
To keep the birds humming

Well there's gotta be something
There's gotta be something wrong
Well there's gotta be something
There's gotta be something wrong

Spend your life with a pen and a microphone
You wrote down everything that you could
In case someone gives them a second glance
Now for this long

I hope that this is what you will want
Cause my throat will be the first thing to go
And I hope I'll remember when everyone says

[Chorus]

Well there's gotta be something
There's gotta be something wrong
Well there's gotta be something
There's gotta be something wrong
With everyone

[Chorus]

Well there's gotta be something
Well there's gotta be something wrong
Well there's gotta be something
Well there's gotta be something wrong

[Chorus]

Well there's gotta be something
Well there's gotta be something wrong
Well there's gotta be something
Oh there's gotta be, there's gotta be

    General Commentwell the starting line are trying hard to make a new sound and please people with what they now do and to make a good impression... it really shows how hard they try come the bridge. The first lines in the chorus is what some fans say to the bands in the term of their new music
