lyrics

Part 1:

Sighing suburban routine
Tag along round the house, to the store, catch the bus on time

Inhaling chalkboard monotony
Sit still, voice down, eyes forward, don't look outside

Rest your wings, cage-bound bird
Some day you'll be free to explore the world

Mental notes outside the dmv
Two car lengths, 10 and 2, don't peel out this time

New adventures fill her dreams
West Coast road trips, Florida beaches, and the New York skyline

Ready your wings, nesting bird
Soon you'll be free to explore the world

Transition:

But days slip away
Running in place

Starting to believe
There's no room for dreams

Pre-packaged lives
The daily grind

Part 2:

Stuck once again in routine
Early rise, commute ride, 9-to-5, overtime

Far too spent to live the dream
A tiring week and a bleak retreat, a dry Manhattan spill on ruffled sheets

Mend your wings, fallen bird
You can find your way and explore the world
She says she can wait a few years more
But it's getting hard to ignore
The trail of feathers on the-

High-rise elevator ascends
A measured tower of clockwork success, battered by the winds of regret

Blue sky view from a metal desk
Panic races through her mind looking through the window from the other side

Spread your wings, long lost bird
There's still time to explore the world
She says she can wait a few years more
But it's getting harder to ignore
The trail of feathers on the

...floor
