Danger bird, he flies alone
And he rides the wind back to his home
Although his wings have turned to stone
And we used to be so calm
Now I think about you all day long that's the moment that he cracked
'cause you've been with another man long ago in the museum with his friends.
Here you are and here I am.
The jailbird takes the raps
And he finds himself spread-eagled on the tracks
But the training that he learned will get him nowhere fast.
And I know we should be free (with the rain pounding on his back he recalls)
But freedom's just a prison to me (the moment that he cracked long ago in the museum)
'cause I lied to keep it kind (with his friends)
When I left you far behind. (and like those memories the rain keeps pounding)
Down, down, down
And though these wings have turned to stone
I can fly fly fly away.
Watch me fly above the city
Like a shadow on the sky.
Fly, fly, fly.
