The lamenting bird
My wings are too short
I look to the sky but fall to earth
I aim for the stars that seem so far
But I cannot lift my feet anymore
I AM THE LAMENTING BIRD
I want to live what I thought
To fly through the air, a bullet that can't be stopped
To break all the barriers of old
But here I crash with a broken soul
I AM THE LAMENTING BIRD
Covered in dust, alienated from this world
I cried for a glimpse, a glimpse of victory
But now I only hear the whispers of this world
I have failed, I have failed
I AM THE LAMENTING BIRD
