O fly pigeons, fly!

Standard
Look to it and fly dear pigeons, fly
The sun is melting gold, and stars
Drip their silver down the idle sky
The ice caps melt like prison bars
O fly pigeons, fly!
Go loop and swirl your joy on the sky.

It almost seemed home, the cage
Of our flesh, the vanity we desire
And all our wisdom was a little rage
Against the spoons and spoons of fire
O fly pigeons, fly!
Go loop and swirl your joy on the sky

With broken doors freedom falls apart
Value by value in the ransomed mind
The prison swells dark in the angry heart
O light in the eyes can make us blind
Go fly pigeons, fly!
Go loop and swirl your joy on the sky 

O birds once caged hunger but to stay
Freedom found yearns to break its chains
Meaning in adversity falls to sweet decay
How stupid are swallows in summer rains
Go fly pigeons, fly!free-birds
Go loop and swirl your joy on the sky
