   / Antony and the Johnsons  /  This song is absolutely mystical and
  / Spiralling               /  fascinating. You don't really understand the
 / I Am a Bird Now          /  lyrics and still it feels like, it's about Antony
/__________________________/  mourning how hard it is to be him. The blurry
                             lyrics just intensifies the feeling of him being an
                            outsider in a particular bizarre way.

Chordwise, the playing with the 2nds of the chords is very important. There's no
pattern to it, so it makes more sense to explain it outside the chord scheme.
The key is A major. (C# major in the intro.)
When playing A, C#m, F#m and D, Antony often adds the 2nd note; respectively to
the chords those are the notes B, D#, G# and E. Adding it denominates the chord
(add2), and if also leaving out the 3rd, the chord is named sus2.
I could have painted (add2) and sus2 all over the scheme, but it's better if you
choose where to do it yourself :)

 Devendra Banhart intro:

Well, and I can and I die
I can, I die
Well, and I'm freezing
I'm freezing
Well, it's a sly curse
A sly curse
Well, and I'm spiralling
I'm spiralling

In my broken heart it gain
I got all my files
I got all my ones to choose from
My gave waiting for you
Waiting for you

I'm ravaged like a dog in need
I am gone, gone
And cartoosan rev again cuddle on (???)
I am, I am undone
I am undone

Where go
Where now
Can't stand
And if I can
Can't die
I'm freezing
Sly curse
I'm spiralling

In my cruel life God poisoned
I was born worn
Not a girl and not a jewel
I am, I am some son
I am some bum

Where go
Where now
Can't stand
And if I can
Can't die
I'm freezing
Sly curse
I'm spiralling
