Track Name: Single A-Side: "Stupid Bird"
hey STUPID BIRD why don't you fly away
your just sitting on that ledge
for reason's I can't say
I'm stuck here with no choice
but your free to fly the sky
if I we're you I'd take flight before I died

hey stupid face yeah looking back at me
with your sunken sallow eyes
your a saddened comedy
your just staring out that window
feeling sorry for yourself
if I we're you I'd tie a noose
and hang myself

hey mister hobo may I offer you some wine
even though my mama always said,
"don't give a hobo anytime"
cause my father was a drunkard
and always on the run
but he'll never be a hobo
he'll always be a bum

hey stupid boss I'm taking a day off
I'm gonna have a beer for breakfast
and then smoke until I cough
and if I find that I enjoy this
you know I may just try a switch
and you'll just have to find yourself another bitch

hey mister hobo may I offer you some wine
even though my mama always said,
"don't give a hobo anytime"
cause my father was a drunkard
and always on the run
but he'll never be a hobo
he'll always be a bum

hey STUPID BIRD why don't you fly away
your just sitting on that ledge
for reason's I can't say
I'm stuck here with no choice
but your free to fly the sky
if I we're you I'd take flight before I died
before I died
before I died
before I die
Track Name: Single B-Side: "Sheep Staring at a Gun"
the suits all plead intention
but what's intention done for you?
are you intending to do something useful and good?
and the prayers that you are sending
are they sent for something just?
or are you just seeking adherence
for a proud mouthful of bluffs?
cause you just can't do good for once
FUCK!

cause there's kindness in a bullet
but there's weakness in hearts
so tell me which one's the puppeteer
when the death horns march?

a wolf can have his longings
his leash glistening in the sun
but there's a god who wants to kill
you no matter what you've done
when we're all SHEEP STARING AT A GUN
when we're all SHEEP STARING AT A GUN
when we're all SHEEP STARING AT A GUN
when we're all SHEEP STARING AT A GUN
