Last Passenger

lyrics

The last has died, she’s gone away. The last to fly, the last in grave.
A hundred years is only time; a billion birds - that’s not just life
Once her flock had blackened the sky. Once upon this nation they thrived.
Ask her why they didn’t survive. Martha, tell them why did you die?
Her story’s one of several told. Of those who thrived til forced to fold
A mounted corpse - a single bird, a souvenir of those who were
A hundred years is only time; a billion birds – that’s not just life
Once her flock had blackened the sky. Once upon this nation they thrived.
Ask her why they didn’t survive. Martha, tell them why did you die?
