lyrics

I heard it was a myth
when a baby bird falls outs of the nest
it can't be touched by a human and be taken care of

Flocks, herds and colonies
School for the fish and gaggle for geese
Where will I go when my tribe goes away?

Mama says we'll be ok
Her class is at night, her work in the day
She will build us a future and hang our clothes out on the line

(She counting) one hundred pennies in a ziplock bag
One hundred pennies and I won't feel bad
Take this change, it's the same, I'm not strange

They saw me sit alone
Broken, thats what they called my home
so they sent me away with my milk and my tray

The cafeteria
is no place for teary eyes
and I ate lunch with a lady in an office down the hall

(I showed her) one hundred pennies in a ziplock bag
One hundred pennies and I won't feel bad
Take this change, it's the same, I'm not strange

My bed was under the
window, I wondered and willed
do the stars care? Will my wish repair our home?
