The telephone startled her. She didn’t recognize the number but today had to be the day she’d break her rule and answer. The official sounding voice was one she’d never heard before.

♪Benjy Ferree – Leaving Nest (It’s a Long Way Down)

In the mornin’ birds are storing
Far being worms to their babes
Screaming, “Mama!” over the ledge
Angry about their names

Soon they all will be leaving
Before the man comes home
And everyone that’s gone
Soon they will be no more

The rain is coming
The fields are a mess
Its all a joke on your missed trends
Don’t know when their coming
Don’t know if they will
Borrow some money, and pay your pimp.

Long, long way down very high up.
Long, long way to the ground very high up.
Very High up. High up.

From the ground it looks like eagles
To others it smells like planes
Cover up the gasoline
If it sparks it goes up in flames

The eagles are soaring
So please look your best
Its all’s a joke on your missed trends
Don’t know when they’re coming,
Don’t know if they will
Borrow some money and pay your pimp.

Its a long long way down very high up.
Its a long long way to the ground very high up.
Very High up. High Up.

Don’t know if they will
Borrow some money and pay your pimp.
