What does the colloquialism "bird on a wire" mean?

I'm really only guessing, but maybe a bird on a wire has a good view of a situation.

I think it has something do to with a relationships. Implies that you are as close as birds on a wire.

It's from a song by Leonard Cohen --

"Like a bird on a wire

like a drunk in a midnight choir

I have tried, in my way, to be free."

It's not an expression that people commonly use -- at least I've never heard it, except in the song or referring to an actual bird on an actual wire.
