Flightless Bird, American Mouth-make me sad

Have I found you Flightless Bird?

I have this song on constant repeat for more than a week now. Usually after a day or two I get sick of a song and my interest just dies as sudden as it came. But for some bizzare reason, Im digging this one. For one, Im curious of the meaning of the lyrics and the melody is too soothing. I had thought its some cheezy love song, but when I saw the singer on youtube, I knew there was something more from what was projected from the song.

I get so much mixed emotions from this song. I wanna cry and just slump in my room while listening to Flightless Bird, American Mouth. LOL and its not even a love song.. hahaha

The song makes me feel there's something missing in me, which is not new really, but it magnifies that emptiness a thousand fold. I shouldnt even be feeling this way, gosh the song is supposed to be political. An expression of disappointment on what America has become and how the Americans have been apathetic to the obvious destruction and break down thats looming so near.

Maybe Im feeling the song writers sadness. Listening to the song over and over again, I cant help but wonder if there are still people like him who cares for their country enough to resort to such passionate poetry. I dont know, people around seems so motivated by self interest these days.

Still, Im brought back to my dilema, In taking the road less travelled, would there be that much difference? With this purpose not yet known, its hard to hang on a ropeless hope.

I dont know, I really dont know..
