I Wish To Fly Like You by C-PRO I Wish To Fly Like You by C-PRO
"Two birds on a wire
One tries to fly away
And the other
Watches him close
From that wire
He says he wants to as well
But he is a liar...

Two birds on a wire
One says 'come on'
And the other says
'I'm tired'
The sky is overcast
And I'm silent
One more or one less
Nobody's worried...

Two birds of a feather
Say that they're always
Gonna stay together
But one's never going to
Let go of that wire
He says that he will
But he's just a liar
"

~ Regina Spektor


-----------------------------------------

^^This is me...I wanted a drawn ID :)

I've wanted to draw something like this for a while. I love birds. They represent freedom and the beauty of losing all control. Basically, things that I cannot find in a fiber of my being to possess. I always feel so controlled, even when I try not to be. It's quite frustrating.

& Regina's song just pulls everything together perfectly.

Again, the scan is pretty bad. All grainy. Ew.
