A Crow Without A Murder

On the take Clair de Lune lies the snake
The blood runs cold in town
Cancel check out of tune limo wreck
A king has left his crown
Swam past the breakers
Sent the anchor down
The piper calls the wailing walls and singing stones
Feel so alive and so alone

A crow without a murder
A solitary black the lack arrives
A blow a soul deserter
Stay the sound the voice of angels
Don't wanna let you go
The more they guess is the less we know
The storm is high let the funnel show
Surely you jest but we look to the nest
We'll be riding your broken wings for the rest
Of our lives

New the dawn so renowned switch it on
The stage is ever set
Eighty proof let me drown ugly truth
The tears not to forget
Kickstand the takers
Flick the cigarette
The weeping tiles the sullen smiles of friends and knaves
Our feet are washed beneath your wave

A crow without a murder
A solitary black attack of knives
To know can't help but hurt her
Slay the sound the noise of strangles
Don't wanna let you go
This more or less is the mess we know
The storm is nigh let the funnel show
Gave it your best but we look to the west
We'll be riding the songs you sing for the rest
Of our lives

Sun on the rain again
Solo flyer
We'll hear you now and then
On the wire

A crow without a murder
