lyrics

Before I knew what happened
I was turned into a bird
As quick as I could blink
A magic spell, I think

A mess of feathers, scatterbrained
Not knowing what was what
Thinking only of survival
And which way was up

Fly back to reality
Fly back to reality

It took a while to get the hang of
Tails and beaks and wings
I floated in the dark
To find where I’d parked

Scanning the horizon
I was struck by a sight
My eyes had been reorganized
And I saw the light

My cryptochromes guide me home, guide me home
My cryptochromes guide me home, guide me home
When I'm lost my cryptochromes guide me home
My cryptochromes guide me home, guide me home

Every atom in my body used to live inside a star
Sacrificed across the ether at a billion miles an hour
Home is where the fusion happens, home is where you are
In your heart resides the furnace of a lineage of stars

Before I knew what happened
I was turned into a bird
As quick as I could blink
A magic spell, I think

A mess of feathers, scatterbrained
Not knowing what was what
Thinking only of survival
And which way was up

My cryptochromes guide me home, guide me home
My cryptochromes guide me home, guide me home
When I'm lost my cryptochromes guide me home
My cryptochromes guide me home, guide me home
