    Lyrics

    On lead-poisoned wings -- you try to sing
    Freak beak shrieks are thrown -- at your confusing hue
    The peacock screaming eyes -- show no mercy no mercy

    Painted bird -- it's absurd
    Just a tainted bird -- hurting their twisted nerve

    The flock will make you choke -- on this sadistic joke
    And the whippoorwills -- they make a din
    In laughing unison -- you're hitchcock carrion
    In laughing unison -- you're hitchcock carrion
    Carry on

    Painted bird -- it's absurd
    Just a tainted bird -- hurting their twisted nerve

    I hear your sorrow -- maybe tomorrow
    You'll lose your sorrow
    When a fated weather will cleanse away
    That painted feather -- and all that sorrow

    A coquette in fur purr for the painted bird
    Confound that dowdy flock -- with a sharp-honed nerve
    Because we're painted birds by our own design
    By our own design
    And there's no more sorrow

    Have you heard -- about the painted bird
    Just a tainted bird -- hurting their twisted nerve
    We've lost our sorrow -- now it's tomorrow
    No need to hide your feather until a fated weather
    No more sorrow...
    Now we're painted birds -- mocking that twisted nerve

    It's absurd...
    Thanks to Chiara for the contribution to this song.

      This song is about a man in NY who kept birds on the roof of his apartment, he used to get one and paint it , then put it back in and watched the other birds kill it ,because they did not recognise it.Just for entertainment.
