Music = Life: Iron & Wine "Flightless Bird, American Mouth"

One of my latest additions to "repeat" mode. One of those sweet confusing songs. A must have for your emo days. Personally, the song can give you a tooth ache. Although is thought to be about a "Dubbya & Lost America", you decide...

Iron & Wine - Flightless Bird, American Mouth
Click title to listen

I was a quick wet boy, diving too deep for coins
All of your street light eyes wide on my plastic toys
Then when the cops closed the fair, I cut my long baby hair
Stole me a dog-eared map and called for you everywhere

Have I found you
Flightless bird, jealous, weeping or lost you, American mouth
Big pill looming

Now I'm a fat house cat
Nursing my sore blunt tongue
Watching the warm poison rats curl through the wide fence cracks
Kissing on magazine photos
Those fishing lures thrown in the cold
And clean blood of Christ mountain stream

Have I found you
Flightless bird, grounded, bleeding or lost you, American mouth
Big pill stuck going down
