"Cold Days From the Birdhouse" as written by Andrew James Macfarlane, James Graham, Mark Gerard Devine and Craig Orzel....
Another hotel
With ruined plans
Romantic gesture
Withruined plans

And so you make it your own
But this is where your arm can't go
You make it your own

Another phone call
With ruined plans
Romantic gesture
With ruined plans

And so you make it your own
But this is where your arm can't go
You make it your own
But this is where your arm can't go

And your red sky at night won't follow me
It won't follow me now

I won't wear your shoes
And I won't clip your wings

I see it when you lied
We all look so surprised
And will you come back?
You come back

And breathing in smoke signs
Like a puppet told to drive
And will you come back?
You come back

And your red sky at night won't follow me
It won't follow me now (x3)
And your red sky at night won't follow me
You won't follow me now

So where are your manners? (repeat until end)

    General Comment>>And breath and then -spoke sighs-
    Sounds to me like:
    And breathin in smoke signs

    >>I'm going where you should
    >>I'll -unplug- your mind
    Sounds to me like:
    I won't wear your shoe
    And I wont clap your land

    ... which admittedly makes no sense, but that's really what it sounds like. But I'm not Scottish, so the accent might be affecting what I hear.

    In any event, this song is awesome.

    General Commentit should beeee -

    "i won't wear your shoes.
    i won't clip your wings."

    instead of 'im going where you should, ill unplug your mind'.




    and breathing in smoke signs.... like a puppet told to drive, will you come back? you come back.

    General CommentYep. Comments have corrected most of the mistakes, but the posted lyrics are pretty wrong.

    General CommentIs it "It won't follow me now" or "It won't follow me, no"?

    General CommentI don't know why someone hasn't said this, but if you listen with any sort of good hardware it's obvious he's alternating between "where are your mirrors", "where are your morals", and "where are your manners".
