new song > prayer bird

has a few notable firsts. One is that I used a ride cymbal on this song that is the only remaining piece of kit from when I first began drumming as a wee lad. Two is that it is my first official scat, albeit a short one – but it was fun.

prayer bird

she was feelin low down on the outer edge of town it was midnight
everywhere she looked she saw chains and steam
all her friends were gone no one to hold tight
the gutter opens wide where the streets are mean

that’s ok that’s allright
prayer bird flyin in the middle of the night
that’s ok thats allright
prayer bird flyin in the middle of the night you’ll see
flying in the middle of the night you’ll see

well it’s rat eat rat as we see the fat cat stow all the cash
where mercilessness and hopelessness reign in the dark supreme
but she was smarter than that and her faith burned bright as she fell on her knees
and offered up a prayer to the one and only living king

that’s ok that’s allright
prayer bird flyin in the middle of the night
that’s ok thats allright
prayer bird flyin in the middle of the night you’ll

pray

on your knees and pray
prayer bird flying high
oh my my yeah use in trying

fly

up into the sky
take and help me try
prayer bird flying

that’s ok that’s allright
prayer bird flyin in the middle of the night
scat out
