As beautifully sung by Sia, her song “Bird Set Free,” tells a touching story. She speaks of being stuck; there’s a scream inside that won’t come out, or, she has a voice but cannot sing. It means so many things and is so complex. She relates herself to a bird with clipped wings- this bird can’t fly. Something’s holding it- her down. This song tells so many stories with just one lyric: “Bird Set Free.” The song could be about being bullied, or disabled. Mentally ill, or angry. It is a freeing song.
