Default The Birds Call My Name

The Birds Call My Name - 95/96


The trees, they welcome me
Branches opening themselves
Open and awaiting.
But am I?
I try but I cannot accept
I open my arms
But these trees do not welcome me
I won't wait any longer
This forest is not my home.
The birds call my name
And I listen to hear it
They call again and again
So I will wait.
They bring gifts and song
Song and dance and fruit
But the fruit is bitter;
The song pains my ears;
The dance in ungainly.
They do not appreciate
They try to reach to me
But I stop without will
Without a heart.
The birds are all in cages
And their song is soft
Soft and sad, they sing
Not once do they listen
But they want you to hear them.
Listen, but you may not song
The birds tell me this
The birds welcome me
But their wings are like the trees
Open but not welcoming
And their thorns stick into my side.
I disdain these birds
I disdain what they stand for
They are all hypocrites
And should not be dealt with
They lie and steal, rape and pillage
Murder, rob, betray
Yet they still seek my forgiveness
I am not bad, though I stay here

In between these birds and trees
The birds call my name, they screech!
The cold trees stand away
And I'm all alone again
A silent field, I sit
The birds are my only companions
