Track Name: Three Birds
"Three Birds"

one is flying freely
a second is close behind
a third is like a winged mirage
from a distant mind...

i've got three birds to feed today
& tres are the songs that they will sing
one bird sings for the future
another gonna keep you where you stand

& the last is the past with the world all aghast
a voice sang sweetly to me
i've got three birds to feed today
so they can sing in harmony

the first is the last with the world all aghast
a voice sang gently to me
i've got three birds to feed today
so they can sing in perfect harmony
Track Name: Birdseed Bagatelle
instrumental
Track Name: Song of the Uncaged bird
'Song of the Uncaged Bird'

It's not that I don't dig routines
some things they make them gel
but when you're running back to back
it can be hard to tell

so prop open the shutters
for the gentle rolling breeze

& i'll sing
the song of the uncaged bird
channeling
the tune of the fleshless word

now as you're strolling through the square
you'll see it left & right
a nightingale is there for sale
who flies less than a kite

takeoff is a rumor
in a 10x14 world

still it dreams
the song of the uncaged bird
& it hears
the verse of the outside world

suet
(suet!)
you bet
(you bet!)
yum-yum

but the sky
is why
we're here
& where we're from

ah ahh ahhhh
ahh ahhh ahhhh...

all creatures are imperfect
but it's not a cause for shame
would you sense any difference
if your step had not been lame

one thing is another
before it is something else

but it means
the song of the uncaged bird
channeling
the tune of the fleshless word

& it dreams
the song of the uncaged bird
then it knows
the ditty of the open door
