lyrics

All the birds of Eden
Don’t know where to fly
Because the North looks like the South
From January clear out
Until the fourth of July
Way out in the west
Whatever water’s left
Fills the bottles
Fills the shelves
Filling the bellies of the whales
Filling the bottoms of the oceans

When night falls on Eden
Birds don’t know it’s not day
So they cry and they call
To the quiet then the qualms of breaking
Then that day gets broken
Then that day gets numbered
Nights get lost
Momma Bird’s crying
Cause the alarm clock won’t shut off
She’s flying barely alive

She’s flying over the Garden
Watching kids playing scared
Better to be caged inside
So the cameras and I
Can keep an eye on you
Just like everybody do
Everybody online
Everybody off
Everybody out
Everybody shouts
Hot damn, I am barely alive

Beak in a river of Eden
Once flowed with gold
Now those rivers are roads
Endless roads that go and go and go
Then stop to become parking lots
On endless highways
Ending in manors called Endless Estates
It’s paradise!
That’s what the brochures say
Very alive! You’ll feel very alive!
But you’ll be buried alive

Deep in the forests of the Garden
There’s a fake plastic breeze
Every minute every hour
Among the cell phone towers
I mean evergreens
Forever green
For every poison sweetened
For no fruit forbidden
For nothing is hidden
For all knowledge given
Like which direction is heaven
And if I’m even alive

Now poor Momma Bird’s lost
She’s lost and all alone
Got to bring her home
First you got to find her remote control
Can you hear it?
Can you hear her?
Can you hear the call
Of nothing at all
Here in Eden?
