Flightless Bird American Mouth Lyrics

I was a quick wet boy
Diving too deep for coins
All of your street light eyes
Wide on my plastic toys
Then when the cops closed the fair
I cut my long baby hair
Stole me a dog-eared map
And called for you everywhere

Have I found you?
Flightless bird, jealous, weeping
Or lost you?
American mouth
Big pill looming

Now I'm a fat house cat
Nursing my sore blunt tongue
Watching the warm poison rats
Curl through the wide fence cracks
Kissing on magazine photos
Those fishing lures thrown in the cold and clean
Blood of Christ mountain stream

Have I found you
Flightless bird, grounded, bleeding or lost you, american mouth
Big pill stuck going down

I LOVE TWILIGHT September 23, 2014-17:55

I think this song is about someone losing their loved one/ones. Flightless bird, a bird that cannot run, cannot fly. American mouth, americans accept anything into their mouth without realizing what it might be, the end of their existence or just a "vacation".

He lost his childhood love and takes a pill in the end either for depression or death because he can't find her.
