What Do I Care

Her eyes are so lonely. her face is so old,
One to many winters, her hands are too cold.
She'll be sleeping tomorrow, in a cradle of pine,
They'll say, look at the sky, and you'll see her light shine.
The church bells are ringing, the altar is set,
But I wonder how long they're gonna take to forget,
So I kneel down beside her, maybe I'll say a prayer,
But I know in my heart that I really don't care at all!

She's better in death, tere's no need to grieve,
Now her eyes have no malice, no foul words to breath,
Yeah what do I care, she's nothing at all,
We've all gotta go there, we're all gonna fall.

I tell all the folks, in the town where I live,
I've got so much to offer, I've got so much to give.
And the people reply, that they'll help me get there,
But I know in my heart, that they really don't care at all!

Yeah what do I care, it's a shit town to live,
It's got nothing to offer, and nothing to give,
I've gotta get away, away from this place,
These wonderful people and their smothering embrace.

Yeah what do I care, they're all empty lies,
You can't hear my calling, you can't hear my cries,
I've gotta wake up, I've got to be real,
I just want some solace, I just wanna feel.
So give me some food, give me so drink,
There's a fire in my head and I can't sleep a wink
I'm going to starve, I'm going to die,
Don't cut my feathers, please let me fly....

La, la, la, la......
