Herman Brood – Sleepin' Bird lyrics
Sleepin' bird

He took off with the wild keys in the early mornin' grey
Ridin' the desert for a million miles a day
& there ain't no barricades anymore
Between the mountains & the very floor

Dark spot as he quizzed the neighbourhood
Leavin' it all in a shadow of blood (he was...)

[Chorus:]

Never seen, he was
Never heard
Passin' by like a sleepin' bird

(2 x)

He took his time, when he shot him through the head
Before he hit the floor the boy was cold & dead
One day someone is gonna plead against your name
He won't mark if you win or lose, how you play the game

One day someone is gonna plead against your style

So uptight - he just can't take away your smile

He was

[Chorus:]

Never seen, he was
Never heard
Passin' by like a sleepin' bird

(2 x)

Dark spot as he quizzed the neighbourhood
Leavin' it all in a shadow of blood

(guitar solo - 16 bars)

Heartbeat's fadin' - pressure's goin' down
Skin gets red - eyes start poppin' 'round (he was...)

Chorus - with breaks

Chorus - till fade
