I’m the man-bird who is flying low,
Looking on more than half the time –
I’m thinking that it would start to show
On the wings of another life.

Now, why would you ask of me
What you can live without?
Four years I’m out of reach,
And life was only heard about.

When I’m down is when I wonder why,
Once ahead, I don’t seem to know
How to speak for my former life –
Like a dream that I should have wrote down.

Why would you ask of me
What you can’t live without?
For years and out of reach
Life was only heard about through phones.

Who am I to say
What I can live without?
It’s all buried underneath
Piles of stupid luck.
