"Bird in an Aeroplane" as written by Nanna Fabricius and David Sitek....
Feathered to the tips
Light weight but strong
I can only go this long
Iron steel and smoke
Your power is endless
I’m only flesh and bones

Every machine has a promise to break
Stuck in a dream that I cannot escape

I pray for hurricanes
You take off when I want to stay
Out of steam I’m off terrain
I’m a bird in an aeroplane

Crossing continents
We’re going in loops
Tell me will we ever land
Longing to return
To somewhere I’ve known something quite familiar ooh



We’re flying over mountains higher every day
I’m trying to keep up
Trying to match your game
While you are gaining height I’m fading into grey
And away…
