"Murder of Birds" as written by and Jesca Hoop....
I am not a bird
I'm a murder of birds
Shifting my shape when your tongue forms the words
Like I hate you when I love you the most
Love you the most
Love you the most


The shape of the snake, in a defensive coil
The same retracted lips of the one foolish girl
Says she hates you when she loves you the most
Loves you the most
Loves you...

And I've got demons when I need 'ems
Don't ask to see them 'cause they're not supposed to be used against
You, Oh...

Can we build a safe house?
Far from the bitter bride
And we'll make a home with a brown recluse
And the cobra locked outside
To the spider we'll give a web
To the cobra, a lullaby
in keeping the demons happy
You may free for me to fly

In the shape of home baked bread
And a girl in a turned down bed
In a wick of twisted thread
For the loving words you said

And I think I'm alone in desire for grace
For you unleash your mood and I'm no longer safe
I say I hate you when I love you the most
Love you the most
Love you the most

The shape of my breast and the shape of my kiss
Dement and coil with a slither and hiss
I say I hate you when I love you the most
Love you the most
Love you

And I've got demons
When I need 'ems
Don't ask to see 'em, they're not supposed to be used against us
You, Oh....

Can we build a safe house?
Far from the bitter bride
And we'll make a home with a brown recluse
And the cobra locked outside
To the spider we'll give a web
To the cobra, a lullaby
in keeping the demons happy
You may free for me to fly

In the shape of home baked bread
And a girl in a turned down bed
Ind a wick of twisted thread
For the loving words you said

In the shape of home baked bread
And a girl in a turned down bed
In a wick of twisted thread
For the loving words you said

I am not a bird
I'm a murder of birds

    I'm not a bird
    I'm a murder of birds
    Shifting my shape
    When your tongue finds the words

    Like I hate you when I love you the most
    Love you the most
    Love you the most

    This shape of snake
    In a defensive coil
    Same retracted lips
    Of the one foolish girl

    Says she hates you when
    she loves you the most
    Loves you the most
    Loves you the most

    And I've got demons when I need 'em
    Don't ask to see them
    they're not supposed to be
    used against you, Oh

    Can we build a safe house
    Far from the bitter bride?
    And we'll make a home with a brown recluse
    And the cobra left outside

    For the spider, we'll give a web
    To the cobra, a lullaby
    And keeping the demons happy
    You make free for me to fly

    And the shape of home baked bread
    And the girl in a turned down bed
    And a wick of twisted thread
    From the loving words you said, birds

    This shape of my breast
    And a shape of my kiss
    Demented coil
    With a slither and a hiss

    I said, "I hate you and I
    Love you the most
    Love you the most
    Love you"

    And I've got demons when I need 'em
    Don't ask to see them
    they're not supposed to be
    used against you, Oh

    Can we build a safe house
    Far from the bitter bride?
    And we'll make a home with a brown recluse
    And the cobra left outside

    For the spider, we'll give a web
    To the cobra, a lullaby
    And keeping the demons happy
    You make free for me to fly

    And the shape of home baked bread
    And the girl in a turned down bed
    And a wick of twisted thread
    From the loving words you said

    And the shape of home baked bread
    And the girl in a turned down bed
    And a wick of twisted thread
    From the loving words you said

    'Cause I'm not a bird
    I'm a murder of birds
