Mercury Rev – The Funny Bird lyrics

Well goodbye southern spy
I've come to love you in the light
Always staring in the void
Have your eyes all been destroyed
All these digging little hands
Of all the stones that never land
Your the only one I know

And farewell golden ring
Oh you hollow little thing
Like a wave along the coast
I've come to love the highs and lows
When in the end you're just a band
A funny bird that never lands
And your the only one I know

Farewell golden sound
No one wants to hear you now
And of all the happy ends
I wouldn't wish this on a friend
But your the only one I know
