Fly away little birdie

Fly away little birdie and fly you must;

fly away from all this stinking pile of shit

You have to escape this all right now;

before you take an ill-fated and fatal hit

Feelings are needles, sharp and poisonous;

emotions squirm like snakes in a dark pit

Crawl out of the trench you dug yourself;

before your will surrenders and throat is slit

 

Fly away little birdie and fly you must;

fly away from the devastating reality

Go run fast and hide somewhere secret;

before life tears you apart with its duality

Reality is painful, it’ll smash your heart;

the demons all chuckling with a dark glee

Escape this life and shed this heavy burden;

you’ll be forgotten soon in days two or three

 

Fly away little birdie and fly you must;

fly away from the overwhelming shadows

You have to fly towards the invisible light;

before you become a frozen black rose

The darkness is heavy, it will smother you;

ashes will scatter once the cold wind blows

Run away from this all, take the final plunge;

before the pain overcomes and even grows

 

Fly away little birdie and fly you must;

fly away from this maddening mayhem

You have to find peace and stillness;

before you stand guilty and they condemn

The chaos is evil, it will corrupt your soul;

it will lose its luster, will be no more a gem

Run away while you can still get up and run;

before your self is divided into us and them
