Birds

Somebody hold me
I'm falling apart
I'm having an earthquake
under my heart

Is this what it feels like
when babies are born?
Just like it does
when galaxies form

It begins
It begins with

The lie
The lie about time
there's nothing ahead
there's nothing behind

The lie
The lie about space
there's nowhere to go
it's all in one place

The truth
The truth about love
breaking a heart
hatching a dove

The bird
The bird in the beast
kicks at my ribs
until it's released

Somebody catch me
I'm tumbling in
There's suddenly quicksand
under my skin

Is this what it feels like
when bodies go back?
Just like it does
when stars collapse

We're done
We're done with

The lie
The lie about time
there's nothing ahead
there's nothing behind

The lie
The lie about space
there's nowhere to go
it's all in one place

The truth
The truth about love
breaking a heart
hatching a dove

The bird
The bird in the beast
kicks at my ribs
until it's released

That's what I see
move in your eyes
Just what I see
filling the sky

All of us falling
All of us flying
All of us falling
All of us flying
All of us birds...

hatched in the beast
kicked at the ribs
now we're released
from the lie
