MERRY BIRD
- Words by Ezra Hocquard

VERSE I

Skeptical thoughts of a merry bird
On the herb getting served.
Slamming the door on a beauty queen
Telling steep lies; she corners me.

Caught in the act with a planned attack,
Yet I oversee.
Shiver I do but I can't divide her heartbeat
I turn and leave.

BREAK

It took the saddest girl to wander into my heart
For me to foresee a paper thin facade.

VERSE II

Press on the past when I see you pass
Talk about torn open dreams
Amongst the restless I search
For you on the avenues that we wish had been.

See the paths now have broken down
With darkened clouds; splinters at our feet.
Now foretold they behold
Cold energy.

BREAK

Silence can wear me
We're frozen in the decay
And both caving in
A love paper thin.

CHORUS

Cold energy upon my sleeve
Smashing it up the sad mirror-breach
Photographs I burn em instantly
Hot Kuwaiti love ain't too free.

BRIDGE

I'm not holding on to this
I'm not cold enough for this
I'm not holding onto this
I'm letting her go now
Hot Kuwaiti love ain't too free.

CHORUS

Cold energy upon my sleeve
Smashing it up the sad mirror-breach
Photographs I burn em instantly
Hot Kuwaiti love ain't too free

VERSE III

Buried the days that had made us cry
Trying to find a day to heal
Right with her now though I try to hide I try
So just save your view to steal

Vowed to be suave in the mayhem
Still my fight at getting with the real gem
Caught in the act with a planned attack
Get off my mad track or then, again.
