"John Lennon imagined a world filled with peace and love.
Martin Luther King dreamt of a world free from racial discrimination and oppression.
The guy who invented the frisbee dreamt of a world where people would throw a flat circular object at eachother to pass the time. He succeeded.
This is a song about my dreams, my what-ifs. It's called
If I Had Wings."

If I had wings I'd fly away from here
But wherever I land people would think that I was weird
They'd be like why do you have wings
Did your mom have sex with a bird or something?

If I had one wish I'd wish for a thousand more
But that'd probably be against the rules so I'd have to think some more
Then I'd wish for all of Superman's powers
To fly around and see all good looking girls taking showers.

If I ruled it'd probably fall apart
Because I'm not a very organized person and I'm not really all that smart
I'd just sit around smoking weed all day
Thinking who the hell put me in charge here anyway?

If I could ask God one question I'd ask him the meaning of life
And he'd probably answer I could tell you but then I'm gonna have to kill you
And I'd say "Never mind, I'm not that curious
So please don't tell me and please don't kill me."

If I had a million dollars how would I spend it?
I'd think giving it to the poor but then I'd think "Fuck that shit"
And I'd go and buy a really expensive pimped out ride
And be like "Yo bitch check out the ribs on my ride get in the back seat and I'll fuck you from behind."

If I had wings I'd fly high in the sky
But I'd be a weird half-bird guy
Regular everyday half-bird guy
