"Birds" as written by Ethan Kath and Alice Glass....
Expose them to the air
Drag them by the hair
If you ask I'm feeling fine
Malignant to benign

Show up throw up into the womb
Show up throw up into the womb
Show up throw up into the womb
Show up throw up into the womb

Each breath is but a sigh
She never bat an eye
It's not polite to stare
Wool spun from her hair

Show up throw up into the womb
Show up throw up into the womb
Show up throw up into the womb
Show up throw up into the womb

Obedient and shy
With button nose and eyes
Recoil at his prayer
I'm biased to be fair

    Lyric CorrectionLayers of lace
    Held in place
    Diagnosed
    you're a ghost

    Show up throw up into the womb
    Show up throw up into the womb
    Show up throw up into the womb
    Show up throw up into the womb

    Pull out their eyes
    Apologize
    Emerald waves to lubricate

    Show up throw up into the womb
    Show up throw up into the womb
    Show up throw up into the womb
    Show up throw up into the womb

    General Comment"pull out their eyes apologise" is from james joyce's a portrait of the artist as a young man.

    General CommentI'm not sure about these lyrics, except for the chorus. The verses seem nearly indistinguishable, unless a clearer version of this exists. But what I hear sounds nothing like what's provided.

    But amazing song nonetheless.

    General Commenti think it's a song about fear. like what would happen if you suddenly saw a sheet held in the air apparently by a ghost. you'd get a sick feeling in your lower stomach. (or womb). maybe the narrator has a fear of birds. after seeing someone's eyes being gouged out by them in a Hitchcock movie.

    General CommentAny chance the lyrics are "grow up throw up into the womb" ??
    It makes more sense to me at least
