American Dreaming - Dead Can Dance

I need my conscience to keep watch over me
To protect me from myself
So I can wear honesty like a crown on my head
When I walk into the promised land
We've been too long American dreaming
I think we've all lost the way
Forlorn somnambulistic maniacal in the dark
I'm in love with an American girl
Well, she is my best friend
I love her surreptitious smile
That hides the pain within her
And we'll go dancing beside desert waters
Where love is so wastefully spent
And dine upon the crumbs of fate
Most lovers often reject
Yeah, on the lea the rising wind blows
Yeah, on the lea the rising wind blows
How long, how long
Fear long in our dark given ways
Safely inside by the fire
Swear a thought for the unfortunate man
Who must chose between love and desire
We've been too long American dreaming
I think we've all lost the heart
Forlorn somnambulistic maniacal in the dark
Yeah, on the lea the rising wind blows
Yeah, on the lea the rising wind blows
How long, how long

I helped a baby bird today

There is a nest in the front of our house, and one of the babies got his foot caught in it. It's whole leg is twisted, but I freed it from the tangle. Hopefully, it will be relatively safe in our front lawn, thanks to our fence. I think it's a mockingbird.
