"Far from the crows" as written by and James Skelly....
Where did you go?
Waiting by the rocks
Stories never told

When you cried out loud
It never made a sound
Away from the towns
And far from the crowd

Gold, silver and gold
Waiting by the rocks
Shivering cold

Like Miranda said
Life's not for the dead
Away from the sounds
And far from the crowd

Where did you go?
Waiting by the rocks
Stories never told

One forgotten day
Sadly passed away
Into the ground
And far from the crowd

    General CommentIt conjures a picture of someone going to the seaside to kill themselves. The rocks are on the beach; the stories never told are the reasons. "One forgotten day / Sadly passed away / Into the ground / And far from the crowd" shows that this happened perhaps years ago.

    When you cried out loud
    It never made a sound
    [...]
    Away from the sounds
    And far from the crowd
    - Crying for help but not getting any, eventually driven into isolation, and this silence left stories untold, stories that lead to waiting by the rocks. It's a friend's perspective, somehow understanding but not pitying.

    It sounds a little like Placebo, actually. Very good.
