about

Mike Visser: I wrote BIRD in my room after a long day of playing, I was going to stop but I thought I'd just keep going. I put the capo on the first fret. It was tuned to DADF#BE, and the half step up kinda threw the fret board off a little. The first two chords I hit were the ones in the song. The melody came really fast and the song was done the next day at the rehearsal space. We recorded it in one day at the space.
I played everything except for the tambourine during the solo. The guy who played tambo is now our bass player!

lyrics

LYRICS:
People always ask me if I'm having any fun and I never know what to say.
I think they're trying to start a conversation, so I try, but I really want to walk away.
But I need to start feeling a little better about myself, so I stay and I say, "Really!? No way!!"
Feeling like a jerk and a phony but I tried, and there's really nothing left to say
Despite what you heard, I am still feeling like a little bird flying away
Despite what you heard I am still feeling like I'm not out of line for wanting freedom.
If anybody asks you what you're doing with your life, you should tell them that you're doing great.
With all the other questions that are swimming in your head, man there's really nothing left to say.
Because if you think you've got it, then you get it and you're good. Watch the worries all melt away.
We were always trying to be better than the rest, but the rest, it was you, it was you and me.
Despite what you heard, I am still feeling like a little bird flying away
Despite what you heard I am still feeling like I'm not out of line for wanting freedom.
