Watch it fly away, like a sparrow
Like a sparrow
It flutters through the canyons our fathers engineered
with nowhere else to go
but through the walls
with nowhere else to go
but through
through the narrows
the lined monuments
the garrisons of avenues to clouds
Tonight, I'm sleeping on the fire escape
Tonight, I'm keeping all the stars awake
Tonight, I'm sleeping on the fire escape
Tonight, I'm keeping all the stars
Watch it fly away, like a sparrow
Like a sparrow
It shivers on the screen, just a luminescent square
with nowhere left to go
but through the rain
with nowhere left to go
but through
through the city
a never-ending
devouring of the sky by iron shrouds
Tonight, I'm sleeping on the fire escape
Tonight, I'm keeping all the stars awake
Tonight, I'm sleeping on the fire escape
Tonight, I'm keeping all the stars awake
Tonight, I'm sleeping on the fire escape
Tonight, I'm keeping all the stars
Watch it fly away, like a sparrow
Like a sparrow

Wow too much hate. I kind of like this.

OK, Boomer
I can't stand this song! He's sleeping on the fire escape and keeping all the stars awake,how? Farting in his sleep?  what a bunch of wishy washy tripe.

nowhere close to the originality of their earlier stuff
Awful. They should have begun with the ending and stayed there.  that would have been something notable.
Released in 2018? I was hoping this Americana/harmonizing music was going out of style.

So glad to learn of them.  Is it redundant to say "thank you RP?"

Quite possibly my favorite band to see live. So glad they reunited and are coming out with new music again. 
The buzzing noise in the end made me check my pc-fans. And gave me a headache

The rather curious ending made me move from 6 to 7
Small reincarnation of Jonathan (the seagull)
2nd comment for this tune?   Hmmmm
Only 32 ratings thus far.    Solid 6 for me as well.
Not bad. A solid six.
