Yeah

The nightingale that once sang has been cut down by a wire
The fire that once fuelled the music has well and truly tired

Now the crow sings
The crow sings

The first thing that a crow does is scare other birds out of the trees
Then that lonely bird he sucks up everybody's feed

Yeah the crow sings
The crow singing,
"Do what you want to,
Do what you want to do.
Say what you want to,
Say what you want to say.
Prove what you have to,
Prove what you have to prove.
Play what you want to,
Play what you want to play!"


Now
Now music is a bleak forest
Every tender shrub gets crushed right back into the mud

While the crow sings
The crow sings

So I say to you - youth!
Are your lights going out?
Do You hide in a haze?
Are you numbed? Are you dazed?

You know what the crows sings
The crow singing,
"Do what you want to,
Do what you want to do.
Say what you want to,
Say what you want to say.
Prove what you have to,
Prove what you have to prove.
Play what you want to,
Play what you want to play!"


But I don't believe you
You're looking for something you could never find
Each time I see you walking by
There's more sorrow in the sky

I don't believe you
You're reaching for something you could never grasp
Each time I see you walking by
There's more sorrow in the sky

(guitar solo)

When they wrote aim for the stars
You might hit the tops of the trees
They didn't know
The trees would be full of these

Crow singing
The crow sings
The crow sings
The crow sings,
"Prove what you have to,
Prove what you have to prove.
Play what you want to,
Play what you want to play!"


No I don't believe you
You're looking for something you could never find
Each time I see you walking by
There's more sorrow in the sky

I don't believe you
You're reaching for something you could never grasp
Each time I see you walking by
There's more sorrow in the sky

I don't believe you
Competing for something you could never win
Each time I see you walking by
There's more sorrow in the sky
