That's why I don't associate with bird brains with their beaks in the air
Pelicans with wide jaws yap names
For fish heads you'll get tossed in the flames
Where some archaeologists will find your skeletal frame
Vaste Air does not associate with anyone who tries to use the authorities to further themselves by ratting on others that are breaking laws right along side him.
They do all this to get more money to live (fish heads) and all it gets them is thrown into a worse situation (flames) in two ways.
If his associates catch onto his snitching, they will kill him.
The police will never leave him alone because they will always just want more information.
Hes trapped either way.
The last line also could mean two things.
That the police could find him dead after his associates kill him.
That another detective could find his file and come to him and make him his informant once again.
Once you’re in the system you can’t get out.
Hes a pelican because hes got a big mouth
