Let Them Fly

Written By: The MotherBirds

Let Them Fly

Look around at all these suffering people
All pitted against one another
Like slaves that are chained to freedom
Fed a lethal dose of lies and deception

Let them fly again (x8)

One captures that lives of so many
Seduced by flesh and all its fantasies
Drawn like flies to rot and death's decay
Drained in vain and left there to lay

Let them fly again (x8)

Hanging on to land between hell and heaven
Left stranded on a burning ship at sea
Fenced off from the life you'd choose to lead
A slow motion false reality

Let them fly again (x8)

Don't Ask Why

Written By: The MotherBirds

Open your eyes, to the world around you
Is it true life, or just another late night fantasy
Everything you could ever want, or everything you may ever need
You know they’ve got it all here, But
Is the price truly worth the deed
Don’t ask me why

Some like it high, some like it low
I don’t really know why
But that’s the way that it goes
Now it seems to me, as I look inside
I am who I am
And don’t ask me why

I would like to see
People gathered all around, yeah
I can take my time searching the city streets so fine, yeah
Come and join with me, Dance with the melody
We could have the time
Don’t ask me why
Oh no!

This is a Better Way

Written By: The MotherBirds

It's time to go
For a ride
You live your life
Wild side
It can not be
Just anyone
Conspiracy
You will see

This is a better way

Chorus (x2)
Yeah I'm a rocket
Yeah I'm a rocket
Yeah I'm a rocket
Time to explode

You can't compete
On the street
It's toxic shock
Reality
You live your life
Like a star
You never know
Where you are

Chorus (x2)
Yeah I'm a rocket
Yeah I'm a rocket
Yeah I'm a rocket
Time to explode

It's time to go
You must no
You got your shot
On the block
Out of time
Out of line
You had your mind
One time

Chorus (x2)
Yeah I'm a rocket
Yeah I'm a rocket
Yeah I'm a rocket
Time to explode

Gone For You

Written By: The MotherBirds

Ever wondered about the time yeah
Never cared to, I don’t mind no
Some ‘r comin’, some r’ rollin’
Some ‘r takin’, when all I wanted

GONE FOR YOU

GONE FOR YOU
GONE FOR YOU

Ever wondered why the wind blows
And the wind shit hits you in the nose
To taste an apple you kissed a sweet rose
Now come on lady...I'm all ready...

GONE FOR YOU
GONE FOR YOU
GONE FOR YOU
GONE FOR YOU

[Guitar Solo]

GONE FOR YOU
GONE FOR YOU
GONE FOR YOU

Monkey On Your Back

Written By: The MotherBirds

Used to be I could see anybody, I found out
Used to be I could have anybody, I found out
Some would say that I take it any way now, but I couldn’t leave
Used to be I could leave anybody, I found out

It’s that monkey yeah, on your back
It’s that monkey yeah, don’t look back, baby don’t look back

Used to be I could see anybody, I found out
Used to be I could have anybody, I found out
Some would say that I take it any way now, but I couldn’t leave
Used to be I could leave anybody, I found out

It’s that monkey yeah, on your back
It’s that monkey yeah, don’t look back, baby don’t look back

It’s that monkey yeah, on your back
It’s that monkey yeah, don’t look back, baby don’t look back
It’s that monkey yeah, on your back
It’s that monkey yeah, don’t look back, baby don’t look back

Miss Parker

Written By: The MotherBirds

Miss Parker's cooking up a meal
Old Miss Parker's cooking up a meal
Well she wakes every morning at the crack of dawn, gets right out of bed
Makes her way to that stove she's had, for oh so many years
She'll stay there all day and just cook away, work her hand's to bone
I'd be the first to tell you she's a hell of a woman, any man would be proud to know
Miss Parker
Old Miss Parker she’s cooking up a meal

Miss Parker's cooking up a meal
Old Miss Parker's cooking up a meal
Well she'll cook and clean the whole day through, take care of all the chores
She's never had much, but a family to love, love's them through and through
But towards the end of the night when the sun goes down, maybe she'll drink some wine
Kick up her heel's and dance all night, she's truly one of a kind
Miss Parker
Old Miss Parker she’s cooking up a meal
Cook it up
Miss Parker
Cooking up a meal

You Will Know

Written By: The MotherBirds

When the devil comes a calling for you
And holds out a hand to dance with you
Take your time and think for a moment now
Some decisions will last you a life time

You will know
You will know
You'll know

Wake up baby and live your life now
You have so much more to live for
Come on and get your feet back on the ground
You're just a little shaken from the fall

You will know
You will know
You'll know

Don't you ever let the bad times bring you down
What's a few bumps in the road any how
You've got your whole life in front of you
You can make it all coming true now
Go get it now

You will know
You will know
You'll know
