There's a new bird at my window
It wasn't there before
The other one's not singing anymore

Scores of demons have been fading
Slowly through the night
They melt into the walls and out of sight

Oh my family split in two
When my dad after the war
Said he didn't worship with his parents anymore

He kept flying back from school
Still trying to be a decent son
But when he knocked on their front door, they wouldn't come

All the rules you hold to
They're only there to numb you
So you don't ask a question when you feel
If every nonbeliever is a nonreceiver
There's a reason right there
To raise your hand

Fifty years later and we met them
Though I wish them well
It's strange they think I'm going straight to hell

There's a new bird at my window
It wasn't there before
The other one's not singing anymore
