about

Lyrics adapted from Charles Bukowski's poem "8 Count" from "Burning in Water, Drowning in Flame: Selected Poems 1955-1973"

lyrics

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8

from my bed I watch three birds
on a telephone wire
one flies off and then another
then he too, he too is gone
gone, gone, gone

my typewriter sits tombstone still
my typewriter sits tombstone still

and I am reduced to bird, to bird
I am reduced to bird, to bird
watching, watching, watching

thought I'd let you know
thought I'd let you, thought I'd let you know
thought I'd let you know
thought I'd let you, thought I'd let you know

fucker, fucker, fucker
