He gambles on the Sabbath
He's pulling at the mane
He thrashes on the horse's back
Ambition is a bloody game
Horse doesn't want to jump
The river looks too wide
Well he faces every hurdle
With a nervous state of mind
"Stay with me, breathe deeply
take three paces back
turn and make a full attack"
The gods are laughing
And they're tugging at the reins
But he's taken to his wings
And they hit the bank
Heaven may stone him
But Jean the birdman pulls it off
His finger's on the trigger
His eye is on the clock
He doesn't give the game away
And quickly fires the bullets off
Six hearts cut short
Still dreaming they're alive
Run'round in dusty circles
Like an absent state of mind
Who hunter? Who victim?
God love America
He surely doesn't love him
Hitching out of nowhere
Lands in traffic knee deep
A chance to stave the morning off
And get some sleep
Heaven may stone him
But Jean the birdman pulls it off
He wears a crucifix
His mother left to him
It's wrapped in chains around his heart
Rusted and wafer thin
"Don't count on luck son"
All the angels sing
"Don't need to check a weathervane
We all know what tomorrow brings"
Life is a gamble from
Coyotes with the mules
Life is a bullring
For taking risks and flouting rules
Who needs a safety net
The world is open wide
Just look out for card sharks
And the danger signs
Heaven may stone him
But Jean the birdman pulls it off
