"The Crows Are Coming For Us" as written by Matt Good, Travis Brandon Richter, Derek Alan Bloom and Sonny Moore....
How does it feel
To be ashamed
Of who you love
Well I know

You and me ought to hurry
Heaven in the glitter is for real
Real, real

Always knew
What you were
Always knew

You walk on water
You sing a lovely tune
You walk on water
You sing a lovely tune
You walk on water
You sing a lovely tune
You walk on water
You sing, sing

Always knew
What you were
Always knew

The crows are coming for us
Let them live, let them live
The crows are coming for us
Let them live, let them live
The crows are coming for us
Let them live, let them live
The crows are coming for us
Let them live, let them live
The crows are coming for us
Let them live, let them live

The crows are hungry for us
Let them live, let them live
The crows are hungry for us
Let them live, let them live
The crows are hungry for us
Let them live, let them live
The crows are hungry for us
Let them live, let them live
The crows are hungry for us
Let them live, let them live

Always knew
What you were
Always knew
What you were
(The crows are coming for us)
Always knew
(The crows are hungry for us)
What you were
(The crows are coming for us)

    General Commenti think it's about him loving a "bad person" like a criminal or the like.
    and "the crows" are the cops?

    General CommentThe title is also a line from the character Echo in the screenplay Pits, written by Gillian Plowman.

    General Commentjust as 'the crows are hungry for us' kicks in if you listen uber hard you can hear someone chanting 'war, war, war, war,' this song is ace the 'you walk on water' bit had me thinking i was listening to a Korn track.

    General CommentI HEARD that it was about a significant other being ashamed of who they're with, like a girl being ashamed that she is with Sonny in a relationship, so she tries to hide it when she's around other people. I don't know, though.

    General Commentits actually "hidden in the glitter is the real thing" instead of heaven in the glitter is for real.

    General CommentEmo angel is right about the "hidden in glitter is the real thing" but not about the "let 'em in".

    I, however, have no idea what it's about.

    Of course it's about being ashamed of loving a certain someone.
    He tells you in the first line.
    But I think the whole "always knew what you were" means that the person is something not appealing to society but he doesn't care.
    "You walk on water; you sing a lovely tune"
    I think that either means he thinks that the person is SO great or that the person is a tempter.
    The "creepy" voices singing that part make it seem more like something bad, so tempter is my guess.
    Just an idea though.
