I can hear 'em whisper my name
I can feel 'em watch me every now and again
I watch 'em float along the clouds huntin' for blood stains
My souls almost out, and he can only see the pain
Wings spread on the perch they sit
Conversatin' with the Devil on some who's next shit
I feel the spirits rise when the black birds fly
When it's time to die only the crows know why

12 o'clock on the dot, my blood runs cold
Piercin' gaze through the window got me in a choke hold
Visions of death an occult sacrifice
And the ulitmate price I'm takin' my own life
Beady yellow eyes, and they see right through me
Talkin' to me, the beyond consumes me
The black crow takes my thoughts and plants seeds
The black crow plants his feet and oversees

Our Father of Shangri-La
Hallowed be thy name
If the world turns over
Save me from the fire rain
Keep me pure, keep me clean
As the Lotus grows
I ask you for forgiveness
Keep me from the crows

Black feathers, black eyes, black wings
Perched atop the cemetary gating
Waiting for me, recording my moves
Used to be one, now there are two
A couple waiting to pick at my soul
And bring me back to the one in control
The faster I run they still give chase
Will they leave me if I reveal my holy cross face

Black blood within the raven
Have I been forgaven?
A haven of crows watching, squaking
Drifting above me hawking
What lies beneathe its eyes?
Whose guiding it as it flies?
When the red moon bleeds, it feeds
Fulfillin' it's needs

Our Father of Shangri-La
Hallowed be thy name
If the world turns over
Save me from the fire rain
Keep me pure, keep me clean
As the Lotus grows
I ask you for forgiveness
Keep me from the crows

Our Father of Shangri-La
Hallowed be thy name
If the world turns over
Save me from the fire rain
Keep me pure, keep me clean
As the Lotus grows
I ask you for forgiveness
Keep me from the crows

Am I marked for death?
Do they want my last breath?
Do they really want me dead
So my soul will resurrect?
I can't help it
Prayin' to the Gods above
Purify my soul
Change the crows to doves

Wings spread out
And they cover my soul
Deaths voice rings out
And spreads through my mentals
In through my mind
And down my spine
Now my movement's the dead
And the crows are all in line

Midnight
Sunrise
Sunfall
Crows beckon
Pharoahs call
My blood hot, dripping
Crow wings
I'm clipping, snipping

I will never be afraid
Of the eyes of the dead
In my trenchcoat pocket
There's a severed crows head
I look down his neck
To see what they can see
I will finally come to grips
That they will always be around me

Our Father of Shangri-La
Hallowed be thy name
If the world turns over
Save me from the fire rain
Keep me pure, keep me clean
As the Lotus grows
I ask you for forgiveness
Keep me from the crows

Our Father of Shangri-La
Hallowed be thy name
If the world turns over
Save me from the fire rain
Keep me pure, keep me clean
As the Lotus grows
I ask you for forgiveness
Keep me from the crows
