    Lyrics

    Awful still out here, too still for me
    I'm used to going outside whenever
    And something's open, buy some tea
    Feel like you could die here
    Middle of Main Street, plain as day
    And the sun would bake you dry
    And the wind blow you away

    Everybody's shifty
    Some secret's in the air
    Half of me wants to crack the code
    The other half don't care
    I wouldn't bat an eyelid
    If right now someone said
    Boy, the folks you're talking to
    Have been a hundred years dead

    Hey, fly away
    Hey, sky is gray

    I don't understand why I owe anybody anything
    I feel like a tightrope walker and they took away my string
    Feel like someone squeezed the juice out of my fruit
    Like everyone's in sweatpants and I alone still wear a suit
    I used to feel like a Mexican bandit when I picked up my guitar
    Now it's nuclear winter and I gotta pay for a new car

    Hey, fly away

    Why is the car still running
    Won't someone turn it off
    Who's looking in my window
    I heard somebody cough
    Things so important
    A few months back
    Now barely catch my interest
    I feel I'm losing track
    Of people, of names, of places, and of friends
    Excuse me for not keeping up with all the latest trends

    Hey, fly away

    Well excuse me for behaving in a manner that seems rude
    Most of my waking moments deal with finding food
    Something for my family
    Something for my nation
    Designer boots for grandma
    Designer drugs for my patients
    I have been rejected
    I have been collected
    I have been injected and inspected and infected
    Don't be dejected
    You will be protected
    Send me all your money so that I can get elected

    Hey, fly away

    Well I lost my sense of balance and I lost my sense of smell
    In a car accident near the Liberty Bell
    I lost my sense of timing and I lost my sense of touch
    From commercials and checking my e-mail too much
    I have no taste lots of people tell me that
    My eyesight was pretty much shot right off the bat
    All that's left is some skewed inner vision
    And some obsolete info on nuclear fission

    Hey, fly away

    Well I got this town to myself finally
    Think I'll go and park myself underneath a tree
    And sleep off this headache and sleep off this war
    Maybe my dreams will tell me what it all was for
    I might steal some clothes and get my face all dirty
    And hop on the freight train that rolls in around 4:30
    Maybe I'll see you up in the sky
    If we flap our wings and learn to fly

    Hey, fly away
