Parasites (Fly Away)

Parasites (Fly Away)
words and music Elaine Diane Taylor
from the album Coins and Crowns

 

She has always been the good girl
the good mom
the good daughter
safe and sound
Makes a decent decision
Steady hand
Steady heart
Steady, profound
Always wondering in silence
She thinks the wise thing
the truest path
It’s a temporary heartache
when she can’t control some parasites in her path

He has always been the man
the good son
the good father
strong
Makes a decent decision
Steady hand
Steady heart
Steady, profound
Always wondering in silence
He thinks the wise thing
the truthest path
It’s a temporary heartache
when he can’t control some parasites in his path

They take and take and take

Fly away, fly away
Here’s the bluebird from the sky
You have wings, you have things to do
and worlds to try
And I know they had you sign
some social dotted line
but it’s okay
if they breach it
Tear it up and fly away
Just fly away

You’re still good and kind
You’re still strong and wise and wise and wise

I am whispering a secret
Here’s a truism and it’s barely said
When they’re giving you a smile and a welcome
Sometimes you’re better off instead
Wondering in silence
Think the wise thing
the truest path
‘Cause it’s a temporary heartache
and you can’t control some parasites in your path

They take and take and take

Fly away, fly away
Here’s the bluebird from the sky
You have wings, you have things to do
and worlds to try
And I know they had you sign
some social dotted line
but it’s okay
if they breach it,
tear it up and fly away.
Just fly away
