"Birds" as written by Wesley James Blaylock, Justin Weis Froning, Kelsey Grant Harelson, Laura Beth Hudson and Andrew Gordon Moore....
This is our true alarms.
This is reality.
We will do what we can.
We are just figurines
With a theology
That we don't understand.

We can't forget the beginning,
When He set our broken wings. ooh, ohh,

God, how much does it take.
For us to be loved?
For us to be saved?
We all are birds
Stuck inside our cage,
Covered up with grace.
And behind our sins
We hide our face.
Oh, the numbers call.
Yeah, they're dialing in.
But, we can't help but to compare ourselves again.

I can't believe in this'
This blue-lipped, lifeless kiss.
We can't see past our thrones.
We fight for life within,
But our walls are wearing thin.
Oh God, where have we gone?

When I'm just one fighting indifference,
Does it matter what I say? ooh, ohh,

God, how much does it take
For us to be loved?
For us to be saved?
We all are birds
Stuck inside our cage,
Covered up with grace.
And behind our sins
We hide our face.
Oh, the numbers call.
Yeah, they're dialing in.
But, we can't help but to compare ourselves again.

It's not that there were ever bad intentions'
It's more that we forgot where to call home.
From important things that we don't know to mention,
It's the uniform that we put on'the formula we have for love.

Beautiful intentions
Formula for love
Ooooooooh

Beautiful intentions
Formula for love
Ooooooooh

It's not that there were ever bad intentions'
It's more that we forgot where to call home.
From important things that we don't know to mention,
It's the uniform that we put on'the formula we have for love.

    General CommentIncredible song. Maybe my favorite on the album but not sure yet...
    These are the correct lyrics

    This is our true alarm. This is reality. We will do what we can. We are just figurines with a theology that we don't understand. We can't forget the beginning, when He set our broken wings. Oh God, how much does it take for us to be loved? For us to be saved? We all are birds stuck inside our cage, covered up with praise. Behind our saints we hide our face. Oh, the numbers come. Yeah, they're dialing in. We can't help but to compare ourselves again. I can't believe in this-this blue-lipped lifeless kiss. We can't see past our thrones. We fight for life within, but our walls are wearing thin. Oh God, where have we gone? When I'm just one fighting indifference, does is matter what I say? It's not that there were ever bad intentions-it's more that we forgot what we call home. From important things that we don't know to mention, it's the uniform that we put- the formula we have for love.

    General CommentOn an interview podcast on itunes from effect radio, the band says that this song is a rant about some churches and people lose focus on their message and instead become concerned with money, and turn the churches into a "business". I don't really see this message in the song too well, but hopefully this adds to the discussion.
