just said it's the last of the haze cut today
the pressures were resting
gallant slowly in his gaze
the son's work is done but he's still flush in the face
'cross the wet sky spreads an inky black stain

an episode of sparrows
that you've never seen
an episode of sparrows
that you wouldn't believe

i'll stay and scream of the teeth passering
swiftly eclipsing ??
my wife's oblivious with slim snappy beads
women in a society
mine eyes never seen

an episode of sparrows
spelling my name
an episode of sparrows
falling displays

an airborne ballet
the swarming songbirds spell my name
while deftly expressing each letter's shape
in this, they confess, they suffer from hunger pains
and failure to feed them would ??

an episode of sparrows
shaking me down
an episode of sparrows
committing raquetiering

knowing the cost if i lost my crocs
thought of my wife
packing bags, running
no choice is left
my heart sank in my chest
on an exhaling breath i shouted,
"honey, we're having guests,
i guess."

an episode of sparrows
eating all my food
an episode of sparrows
drink all my booze
an episode of sparrows
they don't do no damn dishes
an episode of sparrows
flew off all fat and drunk on my shit

    Lyric CorrectionJust as the last of the hay was cut today
    The threshers were resting, gelding slow in his gait
    The sun's work is done but he's still flush in the face
    Across the wet sky spreads an inky black stain

    An episode of sparrows
    Like you've never seen
    An episode of sparrows
    That you wouldn't believe

    An obsidian stream of petite passerines
    Swiftly eclipsing Helios' beams
    My wife, oblivious, whistling, snapping beans
    Witnessed a sight mine eyes had never seen

    An episode of sparrows
    Spelling my name
    An episode of sparrows
    A flawless display

    An airborne ballet, the swarming songbirds spell my name
    Quite deftly expressed by amassing each letter's shape
    In this, they confessed they suffered from hunger pains
    And failure to feed them to taste would lead them to lay waste to my hay

    So

    An episode of sparrows
    Shaking me down
    An episode of sparrows
    Committing racketeering

    Knowing the cost if I lost my crops
    The thought of my wife packing bags and running home
    With no choices left my heart sank in my chest
    On an exhaling breath I shouted, "Honey, we're having guests... I guess."

    An episode of sparrows
    Has eaten all my food
    An episode of sparrows
    Has drank all my booze
    An episode of sparrows
    Didn't do no damn dishes
    An episode of sparrows
    Flew off all fat and drunk on my shit
