lyrics

Well, I was heading down a busy street with my dear uncle guiding me
as we passed by those stores near the bay
And many things were clear to me as we passed by that shining sea
to pick up some dinner to celebrate.
My visit to that far-off land where I first named my one-man-band
SUPPLIES read the side of the truck that sunny day.
And time does pass and things do change but later when I rode that train
I opened wide and made some extra space
for my life to cultivate more traveling and feeling great
The subtleties of life still hibernate deep within my skinny bones,
presented as its always shown. This is what you get and this is what you take
Whether it’s once or one thousand times, the day you’re born or the day you die,
just look up towards that massive sky and then look back down again
carry on, forgive, forget smile on your brother, say:
“My guts are mine. I love, or at least, I like you guys.”

I was a bird in a small town
I was a bird just hanging around
My buddies were bears. I was a bear.
I was sleeping. I didn’t care.
Yeah, I was a bird in my small town.
I was a bird just lazing around.
My buddies were bears.
Yeah, I was a bear too.
I was sleeping. I didn’t care.
I didn’t care.
