beatiful music and weird lyrics sometimes jive

in my opinion...this song evidently shows...that sometimes...beautiful haunting music...is backed up by funky weird lyrics (flightless bird, fat house cat?!)...which may initially don't jive...but all in all...STILL WORKS!

or maybe I just don't have time to find the underlying meaning of the lyrics haha




Flightless Bird, American Mouth

by Iron and Wine

(Twilight OST)


I was a quick wet boy
Diving too deep for coins
All of your straight blind eyes
Wide on my plastic toys
And 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 bill looming

Now I’m a fat house cat
Cursing my sore blunt tongue
Watching the warm poison rats
Curl through the wide/white 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, brown hair bleeding
Or lost you?
American mouth
Big bill, stuck going down
