[Intro]

Am  F  Am  F  Em
De-de-de-de

[Verse 1]

Am
Little birds born without a mother or a father
Am
I can feel their feathers forming in the running water
G
Now there is another in the middle of my mouth
Em
A hundred all together inside of me now

[Verse 2]

Am
Little birds little birds come into my body
Am
Mother they're within me every moment I'm awaking
Am
Bodies multiplying 'til they finally overtake me
G
Put your ears up to my mouth and you can hear them singing
Em
Put your hands within me and you'll know what I am feeling

[Verse 3]

Am
I just want to swallow up and promise to protect them
Am
Daddy come towards me I can see his hands were shaking
Am
Put his hands against me you could feel their bodies breaking
G
Push me to the floor and put his hands up for a beating
Em
I don't want to hear it anymore he kept repeating

Am
Do you really want the burning hell to come and get you


Am  F  Am  F  Em
Ahhhh

[Verse 4]

Am
Did you see the burning hell that took your baby brother
Am
Did you see how far he fell and how he made him suffer
G
Another boy in town at night he took him for his lover
G   Em
And deep in sin they held each other

[Verse 5]

Am
So I took a hammer nearly beat his little brains in
Am
Knowing god had never know could never could forgive him
Am                                           G       Em     
So I took a hammer nearly beat his little brains in

Am
Little boy born without a mother or a father
Am                                                 
Taken to the river and then pushed into the water 
G                                                          
And the priest is singing that the hell was getting hotter
Em
La-la-la-la-la

[Verse 6]

Am
Others sung all the ghosts the only ones to save him
Am
From the thing he loves the most but we know we'll betray him
Am                                            G       Em
For the son and holy ghost the only ones to save him

[Bridge]

Am                   G
And heal beneath the water I can see
Em                        Am
How the light distorts so strange
                 G                       Em
And this is how I would like to leave my body
           Am
And start again
Am  G  Em
Ahhhhh

[Outro]

Am
De-de-de-de
