3 Black Crows

Album: Ghost of a Rose (2003)
  • 3 black crows were sitting on a fence
    Watching the world pass them by
    Laughing at humanity and its pretense
    Wondering where next to fly

    And they cackled in joy and dove through the air
    Like the winds of a hurricane
    And they spread their wings as if to declare
    "Onward, let freedom ring!"

    3 black crows are sitting in a tree
    Looking down on mankind
    Loving how it feels to be so free
    Leaving us far behind
