"Crawl" as written by and Marti/crane Frederiksen....
High on a hill
Heard a bird sing her song
Sang you were true
Well, she got it all wrong

She didn't know about you're Lies
And all you're stupid alibis
Don't you know, this bird got wise
Surprise surprise surprise

The writings one the wall
Yeah yeah
In letters written tall
Yeah yeah
I thought I'd let you know before I go
I will see you crawl

Fell of the hill
Into darkest of dreams
Promises broke
Ripped apart at the seams

So now you know this bird has flown
You will repay me what you owe
Don't you know you're gonna live
Alone alone alone

The writings one the wall
Yeah yeah
In letters written tall
Yeah yeah
I thought I'd let you know before I go
You made a big mistake
Yeah yeah
Signed and sealed your fate
Yeah yeah
I thought I'd let you know before I go
I will see you crawl

I'll wait till the night comes
In the darkness you are no one
I'll wait till the night comes
Until I know all you're shadows are gone

The writings one the wall
Yeah yeah
In letters written tall
Yeah yeah
I thought I'd let you know before I go
You made a big mistake
Yeah yeah
Signed and sealed your fate
Yeah yeah
I thought I let you know before I go
I will see you crawl
I will see you crawl

    General CommentOk this is a very metaphorical song to me. In verse 1 "High on a hill
    Heard a bird sing her song
    Sang you were true
    Well, she got it all wrong"
    She explains how she was blind to see the truth about her boyfriend. High on a hill means she is "high in love"
    Verse 2
    "She didn't know about your lies
    And all your stupid alibis
    Don't you know this bird got wise
    Surprise, surprise, surprise"
    She now explains how the more he lied and used alibis the wiser she became still refering to herself as the bird.

    Verse 3
    "Fell off the hill
    Into darkest of dreams
    Promises broke
    Ripped apart at the seams"
    She explains how she fell out of love (fell off the hill) because of the promises he broke.
    Verse 4.
    "So now you know this bird has flown
    You will repay me what you owe
    Don't you know you're gonna live
    Alone, alone, alone"

    This verse pretty much sums up the whole song, "so now you know this bird has flown away" means she left him "You will repay me what you owe
    Don't you know you're gonna live
    Alone, alone, alone" means the only way he can repay her what he owes is to live alone as she knows he will because of the way he treats his "loved" ones.
