there's far too many ghosts
it makes us rely on three notes
that could make you weep, sad notes
that blister in your heart
I hope
and don't I know
don't I realize what's changing in our brains
and how it soothes
because its better than the truth
the truth is frayed at the edge and bruised
no use anymore

we could be crawling this time
we should be smiling this time
I see no spooks in you

thunderbird, can you see yourself, big bird
thunderbird, just speak it more discreetly
you're making it sound absurd

now our dreams
they flower in our hearts it seems
and don't I know
don't I realize what's changing in our brains
and how it soothes
because it's better than the truth
the truth is frayed at the edge and bruised

we could be crawling this time
we should be smiling this time
I see no spooks in you, you, you

thunderbird, can you see yourself, big bird
thunderbird, just speak it more discreetly
you're making it sound absurd
you're making it sound absurd
you're making it sound absurd

    My Opiniongreat song, especially the way he drags out the truth line. boyfriend heard me playing this in my car and now insists that this is an ode to the "bum wine" Thunderbird. i'd still like to believe it runs deeper than just that.
