Blackbird, why you wearing that frown?
Don't you know Jesus loves you and me and the preacher on T.V. you're putting
Down
Blackbird, how I love to hear your songs
I could spend all of my time in the shade of the trees and listen all day long
Chorus
But you're ever hearing, never understanding
Ever seeing, not perceiving and your heart has grown callous
You're in a storm and lost your way
Won't you fly to heaven and be saved today
Blackbird, now you've broken your wing
You try to fly to high but you know that you can't go anywhere, can't do
Anything
Blackbird, who put you in your cage?
Tell me was it God or was it you?
Was it me? I guess it don't matter anyway
(Chorus)
Bridge
You say you need a remedy for the thorn in your pride
I think it's such a tragedy
That you have left him behind
You say you'd light your candle
But your love light doen't shine
You say you talk to angels
Well I say it's such a lie
(Chorus)

    With the obvious references to the Black Crow songs within the lyrics and the title of the song itself, Third Day is using their music to "witness" to them, and their fans. (Now, if they would only use their Bible ...)
