Stone the Crow
by Down

  • A bout of deep depression.
    Can't seem to move it forward.
    My lying eyes lie awake.
    Not sure what I am after.

    I never died before.
    Can't live what happened yesterday.
    I never stoned the crow, no.
    Flip through endless stories.

    A life of hand-written pain.
    No one can share this hurt that is mine, mine, mine.
    I never died before.
    Can't be what happened yesterday.

    I shouldn't stone the crow, no.
    Ride on!
    Same old city, same old pain.
    No matter how I try,

    No matter what I say,
    I'm blamed, I'm shamed,
    I'm judged unfairly.
    So now I've died before.

    It feels as bad as yesterday.
    I never stoned the crow, no.
    You too have died before.
    It's more than less of yesterday.
    I never stoned the crow, stoned the crow, no, no.
