lyrics

last week i had a job
right now i have this song
i can't tell you how strange that is
i can't tell you how strange that is

last week i trained two new employees
right now i'm catching up on laundry
and there's a gray bird in the tree outside
and there's a gray bird in the tree outside

and that bird's name is Death
and that bird is everywhere
and that bird is in my dreams
and that bird is in everyone's dreams

last week i had a job
right now i'm making dinner with my wife
i can't tell you how great she is
i can't tell you how great she is

but now there's that grey bird in the tree outside
and that bird is very clearly in its prime
and that bird is looking at each of us at all times
and that bird is never not in its prime
and now somehow without moving at all
that bird is flying right at me
last week i had a job
and now that bird is flying right at me
