poor bruised world lyrics – judybats

i try to sleep outside of myself
absorb some of the shock
all l the world is unwinding
like some heartless old clock
look to the sky for judgment
and all you get is rain
searching every eye for prophecy
and all i see is pain
they say the forests full of rain
will never come again
businessmen want a road
through another big place
chorus
poor bruised world
poor bruised world
poor bruised world
poor bruised world
poor bruised you
poor bruised me
poor bruised world
i saw a picture of a pretty bird
in a nature magazine
said these birds, now they’re all gone
well that’s really obscene
ah, the pictures never taken
of a future we never had
i should’ve taken that one of you
(that day in the park) and now i feel bad
lately i feel something dark
turning in this century
a little something more
than my own pop history
chorus
“birds, please”
