lyrics

(A modern day fable)

There he stands
In his ill-fitting shirt
Wishing that the phone was still working

He opens the window
Looks out at the trees
Notices that the birds are not flying

He walks outside
As the sun drops
And all the colors fade before his eyes

And it’s a long long way somewhere in the distance
And it’s a much longer drive back home
Where she waits all alone for his answer
But the birds will not fly to her tonight

He has no voice
And the birds just stare
He tries to shake them loose from their branches

He wraps cold chains
Around his wrists
Pulls with all his might while lightning flashes

And the shadows from the birds are not their own
The shadows from the birds are not their own

She puts out the phone
One hand to her ear

And somewhere in the distance a tree crashes
Somewhere in the distance a tree crashes
Somewhere in the distance a tree crashes
Somewhere in the distance…
