"Bird of Feather" as written by and Luke Gower Flynn Gower....
So Divine,
Bird of Feather,
And the line,
You crossed crossed kept us together

As the candle burns,
At both ends it divides,
Suffering that's how it gives,
Like it is with you,
Torn between the two, now,
And it's hypnotising,
Taking quite a toll,
This time

But I'm only trying to make it better,
Is there no other way,
No other way to go,
And I'm only trying to make it better,
Is there no other way,
When your so far away,
I feel I'm paralysed

Reading the news in the mirror,
So far away,
Struggle with Fear and with the cost and career,
Is there no other way?

Bridging the gap with calling,
Don't fade away,
Tuning my ears to the sound of your tears,
Is there no other way?

But I'm only trying to make it better,
Is there no other way?
No other way to go?
And I'm only trying to make it better,
Is there no other way?
When your so far away,
I feel I'm paralysed

Of course she's wondering why,
Only three years old,
Dad's gone again,
Don't know when,
We'll all be back home together

Life gets harder, when,
That candle keeps burning inside,
Hypnotised,
Not the end of telling my heart,
Is torn between the two,
That keep dividing me,
Leaves me feeling like I'm paralysed

But I'm always trying to make it better,
Is there no other way?
No other way to go?

And I'm only trying to make it better,
Is there no other way?
No other way to go?
And I'm only trying to make it better,
Is there no other way?
No other way to go?

And this space between us,
Leaves me feeling like,
I'm paralysed

    General CommentIt's about having work away for the benefit and future happiness of doing the 'right thing' for your family.
    Not wanting your wife/loved one being hurting and missing you so much.

    General Commenti agree, this song depicts the emotional and physical impacts of touring/working away from a family. shows him talking about how trying to make the future better for his family involves drifting further away from them at the present time

    General CommentCog is an Australian Band and the album was recorded in America, taking the better part of a year I think. In this song i think they are asking themselves is it all really worth it, given the seperation from family
