Treasure Island

Bird Song


One bird song hungry for their mother
One bird song seeks shelter on the docks
One bird song is warring on their brother
One bird song is beating all the clocks

One bird song pledged loyalist devotion as
One bird song is prayin to their rocks
One bird song is causing all commotion
One bird song is preachin to the flock

One bird song, so meek hurt and tired
One bird song's all fake giddy and aglow
One bird song flip-floppin in the mire
One bird song flat nothin left to show

One bird song found their message in a bottle
one bird song casts wishes to the sky
One bird song tell a real, good, true, story
I can feel and 'bout hear it
just by looking in their eyes

One bird song
lookin for the Ocean
One bird song searchin for the Sea
One bird song is poetry in motion
One bird song sings sweetly back to me

And One bird song high primpin on a wire
As One bird song swoops low to make the kill
One bird song tried puttin out the fire
One bird song
you know their confidence been stilled


One bird song singin for their supper
One bird song makes sweet love to the land
One bird song's day trippin on a storm cloud
To flood cleanse cool new watercolors on the sand

One bird song
reachin round the Ocean
One bird song sails the Seven Seas
One bird song is poetry in motion
As one bird song
Waits patiently for me

Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
