Dodos – Dead Or Alive



as bricks to skulls

if truth were known


so, hush, little birdies, hush


as bullet to brain

if plans laid bare


so, shush, little birdies, shush


as brain matter mushed

at wisdom received


believe, little birdies, believe


as guilty as charged

if questioning tales


tsk, tsk, little birdies, tsk, tsk


as dead as said birdies

if survival is moot


it’s the news, little birdies, our news


as free as clipped wings

if rattling cage


down, dodo birdies, stay down


to soar with feathers of flight

if phoenix shall rise from the dust

regenerate, restored anew

arise, brave birdies, needs must
