about

I was sitting at the dining room table with my guitar one morning before work when a red cardinal flapped up against the French doors that connect to the patio. It whistled the song for me in its entirety, and I stole it. I love animals.

lyrics

Hey I just noticed how we know our fate
yet we're not acting like we won't exist
what are we doing, it's easy to forget
our scope of everything is limited, but

in this city I have found a home
(I have found a home)
fighting back memories of what I've done
(what I've done)
and celebrating the small victories, but mostly
(declassifying records of my deeds)
watching blowing piles of dead leaves
(watching blowing piles of)

frequent envisioning a future death
I managed so long not to think of it
and I've been having great conversations in my head
am I turning negative to positive if I try

practicing peace and being thankful for
(practicing peace and being thankful for)
the red tomatoes on my patio
(food that grows on the patio)
I find my lover's hand and squeeze it so
(I find my lover's hand and squeeze it so)
a friendly bird appears at my window
(a friendly bird appears at)

you hear that voice speaking what is the point
sometimes I get very scared
the current plan to ignore it and hope might not be working right
I guess I might try

practicing peace and being thankful for
(practicing peace and being thankful for)
the red tomatoes on my patio
(homegrown food on the patio)
I find my lover's hand and squeeze it so
(I find my lover's hand and squeeze it so)
a friendly bird appears at my window
