Like a bird upon release
Through the atmosphere
Like a honking flock of geese
Winter drawing near
As the fabric comes unstitched
Hearts and minds and eyes bewitched
Standing watching for the smoke to clear
First chance I get I'm gone
Moses had his tablets yeah
Noah had his ark
All I got's a haystack needle
Stabbing in the dark
Anguished cries and old footfalls
Permeate these paper walls
Need some action all you get is talk
