"Bird on a Wire" as written by and Leonard Cohen....
Bird on a wire
You're gonna fly to where the skies are blue
World is on fire below
But you don't let it get to you
Arrows fly and lightning strikes
In the blink of an eye you can't think twice

What keeps you up in the air
Trying to live on a wing with no prayer
And what is it that makes you so sure
There'll be somewhere to land after the storm
You must be tired

Bird on a wire
You're gonna find you're not above it all
Maybe it's time to decide
Where you'll stand when the curtain falls
Arrows fly and lightning strikes
In the blink of an eye you can't think twice

What keeps you up in the air
Trying to live on a wing with no prayer
And what is it that makes you so sure
There'll be somewhere to land after the storm
You must be tired
Bird on a wire
