Skylar Kergil – On Birds And Bodies lyrics

Yesterday I found out that my bones are hollow,
When did they plan on telling me that?
So today for the first time I'm going to try to fly
Don't test me now.
And my body says, "You can't do like you used to, boy,
No you can't do like you used to."

And what part of, "I need this to survive" did you not understand?
Did you not understand?
It's hard enough to say "I am alive,"
How could you not understand?
How could you not understand?

And tomorrow, I'll be found eleven miles west in the grass
When did they plan on telling me that?
So for now - I'll just leave my world behind
I'll just leave my wife behind, yeah.
And my body says, "You can't do like you used to, boy,
No you can't do like you used to."

And what part of, "I need this to survive" did you not understand?
Did you not understand?
It's hard enough to say "I am alive,"
How could you not understand?
How could you not understand?

I felt like I owned this land -
But now I'm not all I could be, now that I know what I could have been.
I feel like I am whole again -
With solid bones and ripped up skin,
This is all that I've ever been
This is all that I've ever been

And what part of, "I need this to survive" did you not understand?
Did you not understand?
It's hard enough to say "I am alive,"
How could you not understand?
How could you not understand?
