Chorus
G           Em            Bm         A
Haven't you heard? I am a flightless bird.
       F#m  Bm                G            Bm G
I am a liar, feeding facts to a false fire.
G            Em                  Bm        A         F#m
If pathos is borne, borne out of bullshitó-in formal attire,
Bm               G               Bm G
I'll score you a string ensemble.



I saw my son at seventeen,
The shutters made projections on his naked frame.
Now at twenty-five,
He simply cannot stay away from the ketamine.
With makeup on his sores,
He spends an hour a day composing little eulogies.
Sometimes he sends me letters,
But it's mostly garbled phrases and apologies.

But haven't you heard? I am a flightless bird.
I am a liar, feeding facts to a false fire.
If pathos is borne, borne out of bullshitó-In formal attire,
Cue the Bulgarian men's choir.
