Birds Keep on Flying – Written Tuesday 7th May 2002 (Aged 27)

Birds Keep on Flying

birds keep on flying
and someone plays a dream on my mind
we are deciding that preaching peace
is like a cat without its cream
birds keep on flying
high above the human beings
tell them we need a crystal ball
or maybe the all seeing
amongst this confusion there is no going back
birds keep on flying
and it is like looking for a needle in a haystack
but we are okay, we are part of a future
it is time they knew we had something to say
as the people put in overtime
through all their sighing we reach for the sky
as birds keep on flying

James Garratt – Tuesday 7th May 2002 v
