give me shelter and religion,
a home and a bit of your tradition
stuff me, frame me, hang me on your wall
you have me forever after all

my woe is my weal
I'm scared of what I think and what I feel
mother, if I only could
I would become good

I leave my crib, I try to take to the firmament
to be smitten, to be smashed on the cobbled pavement
you put me together again with your wizardry,
your voodoo, your tealeaf prophecy

everything that ever wants to hurt me
you come and lacerate it gorily
on Wednesdays you scent my every lie
teach me how to breathe and how to fly

I won't yield, I won't barter
sitting in cold bath water
give me a lobotomy
until your tools are blunt and bloody

lately I flew and got off the wall
I don't have you forever after all
but your love remains here forevermore
my beak wide open, I treasure your lore
