"After The Blackbird Sings" as written by and Jakob Dylan....
I'm finding it hard
Just to keep up with someone
Who's hangin' onto nothin'
Only to lose what's never mine

And i'm finding it hard
Just to keep up with something
That's hangin' on to nothin'
To keep all these chains tied up and in line, in line

Pretty angel
She bites the hands of the lion
Ties it up with ribbon
Watches as hound dogs
Bang on her drums, drums

It's so, it's so easy for you to love nobody
It's so easy for you, 'cause you're not tryin' anymore

I seen this girl
She had her hands full of lightning
She rolled it down to me
A lolita smile
With a thorn in her eyes

Now she, she spun the world
Up on the edge of a pearl
A carnivals girl
Up on a ferris wheel forever, forever

It's so easy for you to love nobody
It's so easy for you, 'cause you're not tryin' anymore
Just don't try anymore

Now she, she howled like an owl
Only to fall like a sparrow
And lay beside the scarecrow
But after the blackbird sings
Is the song, the song

It's just so easy
It's just so easy for you to love nobody
It's just so easy for you, 'cause you're not tryin' anymore

    General Commentwow this song is amazing. i feel special being the first commenter.
    i think its about a girl (could even be a guy) who wanted to love and did at
    first but every time she tried it messed up and she was broken. so now its like an easy game to her
    she knows how to fake love people because thats the only love she ever found. and she just lets the rest of the world fall for her fakness and be happy at her carnival (love affair)and they wouldnt realize that for her its just a game now.
    and i dont know how the black bird ties in but im thinking that it means as soon as she was broken the balck bird sang (and a black bird signifies or is a death omen) and she dies inside and thats how her carnival started
