This is The Picture (Excellent Birds) - Peter Gabriel

Flying birds, excellent birds
Watch them fly, there they go

Falling snow, excellent snow
Here it comes, watch it fall

Long words, excellent words
I can hear them now

This is the picture, this is the picture
This is the picture, this is the picture
This is the picture, this is the picture
This is the picture, this is the picture

I'm sitting by the window watching the snow fall
I'm looking out and I'm moving
Turning in time, catching up. moving in
Jump up, I can land on my feet, look out

This is the picture, this is the picture
This is the picture, this is the picture
This is the picture, this is the picture
This is the picture, this is the picture
This is the picture, this is the picture

Looking out, watching out
When I see the future, I close my eyes
I can see it now

I see pictures of people, rising up
I see pictures of people, falling down
I see pictures of people
They're standing on their heads, they're ready

(Repeat)

They're looking out, look out
They're watching out, watch out
They're looking out, look out
They're watching out, watch out

I see pictures of people
I see pictures of people....
