lyrics

I opened my fists
I pressed my palms to the sky
I let the crows pick out
The jewels from my eyes
Oh God, I don't need to be original
Don't need no vision now
Please just plant crocus bulbs in my empty sockets

You cannot stop it
I cannot stay
Let me lay down
And turn to flowers where I lay

I opened my mouth
I let it fill up with rain
I let my voice drown out
The morning dew I became
Oh God, I don't need to be original
Don't need no language now
Please just plant crocus bulbs in my gaping mouth

The birds have flown south
I cannot stay
Let me lay down
And turn to flowers where I lay

I opened an egg
I found a wet baby bird inside
But he was not ready
I heard his first and last cries
Oh God, I don't need to be original
But did you see that sparrow fall?
