My Cosmic Autumn Rebellion (Album Version)

My Cosmic Autumn Rebellion (Album Version)

The Flaming Lips

They tell us "autumn's a-comin',
And soon everything around us will die,
Only a fool believes that he is
Different from the birds in the sky.

All those birds go chasin'
Some better, sunny days,
You can't hear them singing
Cause they've all gone away."

But this one bird didn't leave you
It stayed through the wintertime
You can't hear it sing
But you can hear it as it flies

So don't you believe them
They'll destroy you with their lies
They only see the obvious
They see the sun go down but they don't see it rise

This one bird didn't leave you
You can hear it as it flies
It's not very loud
But you can hear it if you try

So don't you believe them
Yes, it's true, someday everything dies
We won't let that defeat us
We can't hear him sing but we can hear it as it flies
