"Gutterfly" as written by and Tommy Gleeson....
Gutterfly don't look at the stars
Your weak little wings won't carry you far
Bitter and wise you spit the blood from the bones
And burn for the life you'll never love as your own

Oh my brother what have you become?
A distant island in the dying sun

One day head above the lines
Face held to the sunshine
All you've loved you've left behind
Day trip to the big sky

Gutterfly you know I'm a fool
For putting my faith in someone like you

Oh my brother what have I become?
Ashamed and exiled to the place of one

One day head above the lines
Face held to the sunshine
All you've loved you've left behind
Day trip to the big sky

    General Commentim not sure about this one in a way it seems obvious but i think its deeper than it seems. I think it could be about someone dying.

    "All you've loved you've left behind
    Day trip to the big sky"

    day trip to the big sky referring to heaven.

    could be something to do with pantheism :P ???

    "Oh my brother what have you become?
    A distant island in the dying sun"

    It doesnt rly matter still a great song :D!!!
