I talk too much, I always do
'Til sense is lost along with truth
Your silence is the harmony
To every word I truly mean

Your mind is like a rare bird
Flying high above the cold world
Slow dancing in the thermals
Singing songs no one's ever heard
So why'd they want to cage you?
Clip wings and try to tame you
You were meant to be free

Though state of fugue and breach of trust
I see you new again my love
You hold so much so gracefully
From miracle to tragedy

Your mind is like a rare bird
Flying high above the cold world
Slow dancing in the thermals
Singing songs no one's ever heard
So why'd he want to cage you?
Clip wings and try to tame you
You were meant to be free

Some shine brighter than the sun
Too brilliant to gaze upon
And rarer than rhodium
Hear me, wherever you are tonight
You better be flying high
You'd better be flying high

Oh, your mind is like a rare bird
Flying high above the cold world
Slow dancing in the thermals
Singing songs no one's ever heard
So why'd I want to cage you?
Clip wings and try to tame you
You were meant to be free

    General CommentThis song is about a person who has made mistakes and has been a screw up for a long time in front of their friend. No matter what the main person does when they screw up, the "rare bird" does not lose it or get mad. They're smart and they know how to handle things. They're a unique and beautiful person and that's why they're called "a rare bird".

    I can relate to this since I'm the screw up and I met someone very special to me. He was my "rare bird", and he ended up leaving for the military. Just like the person singing, I hope that the "rare bird" is free and shares their beautiful uniqueness with the world.
