lyrics

Don't make a fuss, your wings aren't broken
I left the door to your cage wide open
Go feel the wind beneath your feathers
Might find the world does not get any better
And if you come home too late
I might change into a man, go build myself a bigger cage
And if you don't return

I saw you talking to yourself in the mirror
I thought it odd you never opened your eyes
You looked so uncomfortable, tied up and miserable
You broke the glass and never said your goodbyes
What I should have done I didn't do
I never thought that when I first created you
I was so far away
I should have crumpled you up and thrown you out
To build myself a paper airplane
That don't fly

I bit a bullet and now I'm wasted
It's not the finer things in life I'm used to tasting
I looked at death and now I'm paying for it
You would have liked me more before I lost my innocence
I wasn't always so blue
Maybe I'm choking on the pieces they're so hard to chew
Said if you don't return

Creatively you were my masterpiece
It was a struggle, maybe that's just what I need
Not some big bed with soft sheets
I'll lay my head on a rock on the ground in the middle of nowhere
That's where I hear the most beautiful sounds
When the world grows silent and there's no one around
I'll take back my wind, throw you back in your cage
If I never made you wings you'd never fly away

My favorite pet made out of paper
Where do you sleep and do you feel a little safer
I'll leave the light on in case you realize
Me and my cage are much better than real life
