"Bluebird" as written by and Patrick Damphier Jacob Rolleston....
home, here with your family
home, to hell with the rest
i knew you were crazy but never
thought you would do this

blood, there's blood on the carpet
blood, there's blood on your hands
if the two are connected
i'll know where we stand

bluebird don't sing that song.
noone wants to sing along
we're all so scared of dying
bluebird don't fly too far
i won't know where you are when i
i get so scared of dying

you, caught in the middle
you, cut to the core
you're left in the dust of decisions
begging for more

now, you're high and alone
be careful, dont' swallow your tongue
just put an ear to the ground
where you did it
wait for them to come...

bluebird, don't sing that song
no one wants to sing along
we're all so scared of dying
bluebird don't fly too far
i won't know where you are when i
when i get so scared of,
so scared of...

bluebird, don't sing that song
no one wants to sing along
we're all so scared of dying
bluebird, don't fly too far
i won't know where you are when i
when i get so scared of dying

when i get so scared of it

    General CommentI think this song is about someone that had killed somebody else
    Then there trying to commit suicide
    But I have no clue

    "Now your high & alone"
    I love that line

    General CommentI related this song to being close to someone and then them doing something terrible. "bluebird" is like a sweet intimate name you could refer to someone close as, but the introduced aspect blood on the hands and on the carpet is a lot less sweet- "then i'll know where we stand" It's shocking. It's unexpected of the endeared person. It changes the relationship.

    don't sing that song>>> something, a tune or action, that would be disagreed with.
    don't fly too far>>> not wanting to distance the relationship.
    it's a mixed feeling.

    i was so intrigued by this song i looked for interviews. the lead singer wrote it because one of his friends killed their parents. he said the song was kind of like that relationship- the audience doesn't know right away that's what it is about; the audience will develop a relationship with the song before they find out it is about this terrible thing. Kind of like he built a friendship with someone who did such a terrible a thing. he said he's still friends with the guy, but from that perspective it makes the mixed message of "don't sing that song/ don't fly too far" have more context.

    General CommentYup, he mentions it here - artistdirect.com/entertainment-news/article/interview-paper-rival/…

    "Bluebird" is a strange song. We all definitely loved it. We had all of these different ideas for it. The song came around very strangely, and we thought of it more as an art piece. We got really creative on it, and we never figured it would be a song that we'd shoot a video for. The song's about a friend of mine who murdered his parents. The video is kind of cheeky, but the song is so serious. It's similar to what we talked about with Bill Hicks. In my opinion, the video is good because you don't have to feel bad about everything. The best way of dealing with something terrible might be to laugh. That's where the video goes. You can draw some comparisons when you see the characters. You can relate what they say to the actual, real story. The video's about a Big Foot character. The director was awesome, and we had a lot of fun.
