Artist: Siouxsie and the Banshees
Albums: Nocturne (1983)

Live version (1983)

On lead poisoned wings you try to sing
Freak beak shrieks are thrown at your confusing hue
The peacock screaming eyes show no mercy, oh
No mercy

Painted bird it's absurd
Just a tainted bird hurting their twisted nerve
Painted bird it's absurd
Just a tainted bird hurting their twisted nerve

The flock will make you choke on this sadistic joke
And the whippoorwills they make a din
In laughing unison you're Hitchcock carrion
In laughing unison you're Hitchcock carrion
Carry on

Painted bird it's absurd
Just a tainted bird hurting their twisted nerve nerve nerve
Painted bird it's absurd
Just a tainted bird hurting their twisted nerve

I hear your sorrow
Maybe tomorrow
You'll lose your sorrow
When a fated weather will cleanse away
That painted feather
And all that sorrow sorrow sorrow wo-oh

Ah-ah

A coquette in fur purr for the painted bird
Confound that dowdy flock with a sharp honed nerve
Because we're painted birds by our own design
By our own design there's no more sorrow sorrow sorrow wo-oh

Have you heard about the painted bird
Just a tainted bird hurting their twisted nerve

We've lost our sorrow now it's tomorrow tomorrow
No need to hide your feather under a fated weather
No more sorrow sorrow
We've lost our sorrow

Now we're painted birds
Mocking that twisted nerve
It's absurd
It's absurd
It's absurd
