Pt. 4 Bargaining
A plea with the stars

lyrics

Down here in the open
I made a call to the stars, and they said
I hear you’ve been hoping
To get away for a while, go somewhere far…

And oh it’s been a long day.
I need some space
Hell it’s been a long year, my dear friend,
Too long oh it’s been
Too long oh it’s been
Too long since I’ve seen your face

Oh bright burning bird in the sky
I want to fly with you far beyond space and time
I know I probably won’t see you after today
But please just write me anyway

-----

Soft teeth ringing a flesh without soul
Power hungry thieves living right at home
With 2 minutes left in the half, my shoulder was tapped
Grab a car, or a rocket, cause you can go anywhere
I’ll pull the scar from my pocket and let it show
Let the world see it glow

Oh bright burning bird in the sky
I want to fly with you far beyond space and time
I know I probably won’t see you after today
But please just write me anyway
Anyway

All the wise men sayings keep picking my brain
But I turn to the same old shameful game
I could use a cartoon blast
Raise a glass to this & that, another year of kickin' back
But here’s the twist on all of this
It’s the fact we all know that we look up at
The bright light city
But not just cause it’s so damn pretty

And that’s the question of the whole jam session now
Are you gentle, is it all sentimental now?
When it comes to the drum of dreams,
Do you feel me?

Oh bright burning bird in the sky
I want to fly with you, so high with you
I know I probably won’t see you after today
But believe me, I will keep dreaming for better days
Anyway
