Golden Birds – Commander Lyrics

Dear I’ve gotta tell you something terrible
I’m a cannibal
Eat bitten nails by the handful
Yes baby I’m nervous it’s just this isn’t a first for me
Sense of a debt of transparency
Sense that though nothing is yet amiss
All that solved me was a lucky guess
Dear I fear it’s unforgivable
Love so criminal
But something’s gotta keep this stomach full
And so it’s the gullible eating the gullible
Lying in wait for the curious at heart
I mystify them then I rip them apart
You’ve been treading deep water from the start
With a life vest of a lucky guess
Dear now here’s something confidential
I’m a vegetable
Complete disconnect I just hide it well
Treat my guests with perfect civility
But who wants to wager and who needs to grow
Instead I dream of the day when under a mountain I’ll go
To wrap myself in riddles only I can see
Finally king of the perfect mystery
So give me my ring back
Give me my ring back
I don’t want to be seen anymore

I was sold on love for a while
Now I’m looking to buy again
Sold on the dove for a while
But it flew out of sight
And precious I fall for too much
Precious you be my crutch
Precious keep me in touch
I was sold on love for a while
Now I’m looking to buy again
Sold on above for a while
But those roads went too high
Now I’m looking to buy
And precious time’s jaw’s are so strong
I need you to push on
Precious where have you gone
I was sold on love for a while
Now I’m looking to buy again
Sold on soul for a while
Never kissed any sky
Precious why do we try
But together
You and I
We will survive
Even when nothing else did
It’s just you and me kid

The man who’s a dreamer
Who never takes leave
Who sings of a world that’s just make believe
Will never know passion
Will never know pain
Who sits by the window
Will one day see rain
