Silly fly where’s your self control?

You’re flying high and everyone’s gone home. Still you carry on alone.

Silly fly have you ever had enough?

When there’s warning line before too much, still you just can’t get enough.



Silly Fly, do you think that you’re a bird?

Yeah your flying, but you’re wings are old and torn.

Silly fly, do you think that that’s a star?

Yeah it’s shining, but you won’t get what you came for.



Silly fly your pestering the crowd.

Your cleverness is all but wearing out and you’re just not coming down

Silly fly you claim you lost a friend.

But there was never one when you began, just a joker in a skin.



Silly Fly, do you think that you’re a bird?

Yeah your flying, but you’re wings are old and torn.

Silly fly, do you think that that’s a star?

Yeah it’s shining, but you won’t get what you came for.



When will you figure out, closer to the sun is further from the ground...

Will you scream out loud?

I was closing on the sun now I’m falling to the ground.



Silly Fly, do you think that you’re a bird?

Yeah, your flying but you’re wings are old and torn.

Silly fly, do you think that that’s a star?

Yeah, it’s shining but you won’t get what you

    My InterpretationJosiah said on Voice of America that this song is simply about a fly trying to get to a light. he was sitting in his room in his apartment and saw a fly trying to get at the light bulb. so he wrote about how he would never get what he came for. how told the fly's whole journey lol :)
    this is my interpretation
