lyrics

So I'm sitting by the window with my late October apathy. Blowing smoke into the morning that the wind is blowing back at me. With a mind as blank as early winter skies I'm waiting for the day to pass me by. And the sparrows sit in silence, only traffic roars and screams at me: Pack a few of your belongings, give the rest away to charity! You are tired, lonesome, terrified, you're disillusioned far beyond repair. Go find another place, be terrified and lonesome over there!

And as temperatures are dropping and half-heartedly I'm plotting my escape, trace the clouds my breath is forming and attempt to read my fortune from their shapes. With my vision blurred, my fingers numb I fumble to make up a frozen mind: Should I be capable of leaving if it's me who's left behind? To keep your feet warm keep them moving, keep your blood warm keep it flowing. To find out where you're needed go there – There's no other way of knowing.

Will the silent sparrows miss me once I've found a place with warmer air, found new window sills to perch on and blow smoke into the morning there...?
