"The Crowing" as written by and Claudio/todd Sanchez....
I fed the clues of a lost day killed in motion
But I thought of it so like there's no other way it could've been done
Will they size my fit for a puzzle I wish not to play a part in it
A heart stained in hate a feeling I fear will play circles

But you, you were my favorite
But you, you know, you were my favorite

I severed my ties to shroud this body under the streets of this city
And wait for the day when I am summoned to walk across this face
Well slowly but clearer now in visions that play and plague memories
I love them with all (heart) as a son should to mother and father

But you, you were my favorite
But you, you know, you were my favorite

Would I walk through the door?
Shedding the light of all life
With the rise and reform
Would I come as before?

Pray you're not the only one
Pray you're not the only

If given mistakes would I take them back
If erasing them could, if erasing them would

What would they be the words that I say?
Your face and the door between
I've parted three ways for you the New one that I loved

Did you ever really know before my face shame to break
Did you ever really know before my mind to scared to think
Did you ever really know before my name son to these
Did you, did you, did you come clean in the end from the start

Dear Ambelina,
The Prise wishes you
To watch over me oh

Dear Ambelina,
The Prise wishes you
To watch over me oh

I've fought the decisions that call and lost
My part as the relevant piece in this
I will come reformed

In short for the murders of those I court
I bless the hour that holds your fall
I will kill you all

I will call you out from shelter burn your wings you'll know better (I
Will call you out, burn your wings)

(Dear Ambelina, the Prise wishes you to watch over me)

I will call you out from shelter burn your wings and learn their
Letters (I will call you out, burn you wings)

Dear Ambelina,
The Prise wishes you
To watch over me oh

    General CommentSo since this is all part of a sci-fi story its hard to interperte jsut one song, because they all fit together. Claudio, the son of coheed and cambria is just waking up from a long sleep, i dont know if he knows wheather or not his parents are dead yet. He is in love with ikkon newo, (nikki owen) But i dont know if he fell in love with her in his sleep. Also when he wakes up he has a fairy gardian (ambellina) and i dont think he is burning her wings as an evil thing, i think it may be a way to make her more powerful or more human. and i think it was her who told him about his parents deaths, and the battle that had taken place. He is split three ways i think between the love for ikkon, the revenge he seeks for his parents, and im not sure what the thrid is. feel free to add or correct.

    General Commentwell, the girl he loves is named newo ikkin and the burn your wings thing has nothing to do with ambellina, he is talking to the people who killed his parents. basically saying "when i find you, ill call you out, bring you down from the pedastel on which you hold yourself, and then youll know better than to mess with me"....in a nutshell...

    General CommentI dont think the :burn your wings" has anything to do with burning her/its wings. I think it is simbolizing her turning in to a uman to watch over him and inform him of his parents death. BTW, I read that she turns into a human at the Co Ca message board. Yall should check it out. coheedandcambria.com

    General Commentyou guys got it. Ambellina was sent by the Prise to become a human and watch over Claudio. she tells him what has happened and what he has to do. the 3 ways are: returning to Newo, saving the universe, and giving up on life and letting everything fade to dust. Claudio is the last hope for the universe.

    General Commentambellina....that's a beautiful name. and so is this song. Is it wrong that I listen to the songs and love them regardless of the story they tell?

    General CommentNo. It's not wrong. I'm the same way. I can just sit back and listen without even thinking about what they mean.

    General Commentthis whole song is about claudio has to go into hiding and he is just waiting for the time to come back out and take revenge. the whole ambellina burning the wings is just she is giving up being a fairy so she can become more human and watch over claduio and make sure he suceeds in his quest to revenge his family.
