lyrics

When the finch runs foul of the gust
And it kicks a big stench
And so say all of us
And you say dear brother, where are you?
And he hands you back the icy cusp
And so say all of us

And I eat from a bird that won’t sing
And I cry a boutique
And when birds of a feather flock
To greener pastures
All I ask is for you not to count me in
I eat from a bird that won’t sing

When the finch runs foul of the gust
And it kicks a big stench
And so say all of us
And the lord is our shepherd, and his good son
Died on a hyphen and not the cross
And so say all of us
