Track Name: Bluebird, stay down
(inspired by “Bluebird” by Charles Bukowski) You like drinking beer while standing in the rain. Back when you didn’t know me. I still knew your name. I knew your name. you like making lists, but nothing gets crossed out. There is a bluebird in your heart, it’s about time you let him out.

You like smoking cigarettes even though it makes you sick but you don’t care you want to die, you have a deathwish. But please don’t die because I need you. I love how your smile brightens the room. It brightens my day.

I think of it now. I know everything will be OK. There is a bluebird in my heart, he wants to get out, but I’m too tough for him, I say, STAY Down.

There is a bluebird in my heart, he wants to get out, but I’m too tough for him, I say, STAY Down.

You stopped wearing underwear, didn’t like the way they made your crotch feel.

Your friends thought you were weird but you didn’t care.

I sleep in a pitch black room, don’t want to be bothered by the sun but you are like a cat, sleeping wherever, whenever.
