have i found you flightless bird

I see you taking a torn-up map and calling out for you all over the place in an attempt to find the person you love and who might be your other half. A dog-eared map is an old one. You can search everywhere, but you won’t find someone you think is unique because these are the locations that everyone has been. Those locations have already been investigated, so you shouldn’t go there.

Okay, that’s it from me. Excuse me, but this is all the former creative writing major in me. Are you not so envious that I spent time doing this at work today? The song’s meaning now could not be anything like what I believe. It might be a political statement about the fallacious American Dream. But it’s me projecting and this is what I see. Decipher it for yourself, what do you think?.

I thus made an unsuccessful attempt to look up the song’s meaning online. I therefore decided to enter the fray. Nowadays, the majority of people have expressed their opinion that the song has a political message on websites and blogs. If you choose to interpret the song that way, I can understand where that comes from. Songs can now have multiple meanings; let’s not follow the example set by my English teacher in the tenth grade, who claimed that poems could only have one meaning. She may have asked the poets, but since they are all dead, I don’t think she did!

Since you are no longer attempting to catch each other, the fishing lures are no longer effective. The lover probably realizes that the relationship has changed in the following line. I want some atonement to make amends for what we have become because I see the clean blood of Christ as a sign that I have judged.

Generally speaking, the love gave them (the flightless bird, at least) the impression that they could fly, but since that impression has now been lost, the flightless bird is already theoretically grounded. The future is stuck, but we can stop it from falling, but American mouth, we can still communicate, this need not end.
