lyrics

Body parts in birdbaths…
All over town they’re finding
body parts in birdbaths
while sparrows bathe and sing in their own shit.

Body parts in birdbaths…
Call the police, there’s something
bloody in the bird bath
reminding me that I am only meat.

Torso slices, fingers, toes
moderate interest from the crows
but a red red robin doesn’t know
an acorn from a severed nose.

Everybody wonders
if the pieces come together
to make
a single guy.
Everybody wonders
if the pieces come together
to make a single guy.

He’d have a heck of a story to tell.
