"Wounded Bird" as written by and Christopher Mark/robinson Robinson....
Off the tracks lost the rail
Trying to squeeze a little blood out a rusty nail
When you're thirsty, thirsty
Behind your eyes you feel the burn
As your down hill ride takes a solid turn from the lonely, lonely

[Chorus]
Now don't look back
My wounded bird
There's nothing for you're here
Need no wing just set your mind to fly

It's like it been a long time in an empty bed
In an empty room with an empty head full of nothing
And all you got left is your skin and your teeth
And the red in your eye your six feet deep to get ready yeah

[Chorus]

The waiting is over
So lets roll in the clover
Time for a head full of stars
Lets pull back the curtain
I know one thing for certain
Well we don't have very long

[Chorus]

Set your mind to fly [x7]

    "Off the tracks lost the rail
    Trying to squeeze a little blood out a rusty nail
    When you’re thirsty, thirsty
    Behind your eyes you feel the burn
    As your down hill ride takes a solid turn from the lonely, lonely"
    and they think theres nothin they can do about it but its sayin it doesnt matter if youve been hurt in the past, you cant look back.
    "Now don’t look back
    My wounded bird
    There’s nothing for you here
    Need no wing just set your mind to fly"
    you should live life to the fullest while you can because you dont know how long you'll be here.
    "The waiting is over
    So let's roll in the clover
    Time for a head full of stars
    Let's pull back the curtain
    I know one thing for certain
    Well we don’t have very long"
