lyrics

A Mockingbird.
Is what I am
And I’ll squawk like a baby
And I’ll moan like a man
Doubled like a fisted hand
Born to watch the world, from a window, from a window on Powis Road

A palsied mess,
A flapping fowl
I’m in my room
And I’m looking down
I love the friend
I think I’ve found
Watching the world, from a window, from a window on Powis Road

My grey grey Victorian hospital,
With rooms as high a spires, maybe higher, maybe
Yeah the moon’s within reach if I stand on a chair,
but it isn’t at the moon, it’s at you that I stare

Cos a mockingbird is what I am
Like a coloured boy in the sea of man
This is the world that I understand
Like a mirrored gull in an oil can
This is the world
And I understand, from a window, on Powis Road

I’ll walk in the shoes, of whoever
And I’ll echo the world
and it’s cries of pleasure
And I’ll mimic the morning
of those same lovers later
Watching the world, framed
by a window, by a window, on Palace Road

My grey grey Victorian hospital
With rooms as high a spires, maybe higher, maybe
Yeah the moon’s within reach if I stand on a chair,
but it isn’t at the moon, it’s at you that I STARE!!!!
YEAH!!!!!!!! OH YEAH!!!!!!! WROAR!!!!!!!!
Cos a Mockingbird is what I am!!!!!!!!!!
