"Fly Low Carrion Crow" as written by and Vogel Stephens....
Fly low ye carrion crow
Seize my body for the debt I owe
Drop me high into the depths below
For the things I've seen, no one else should know

It's just you and me and my rib-caged brain
We polished the brass and we dust the pain
And we lay down fallow like slaveless chains
And they call us sick as though they're all so sane

So, fly low ye carrion crow
And seize my body for to free my soul
And drop me high into the depths below
For the things I've seen, no one else should know

And what speak you of a love so bold?
No song could sing, no word could hold
But I warn you now of an end foretold
And a lifelong waiting for a death's parole

So, fly low ye carrion crow
Seize my body for it lives no more
Drop me high into the depths below
For the things I've seen, no one else should know

For the things I've seen, no one else should know
For the things I've seen, no one else should know

    General Commentso haunting. fantastic.

    lyrics in the cd booklet are different from what he actually sings, though (these are what he actual sings i assume).

    General Commentand a life long waiting for a death below

    General Commentfor the "debt" I owe
    dust the "pane"
    "no" song could sing
    waiting for "death's parole"

    Now the house cleaning is done, anyone know what this is about? My best guess is divorce (the love so bold, the chains, the death's parole) but that's little more then a guess. Also what is a rib-cage brain?

    General CommentAdam writes about a lot of abstracted ideas, kind of poetically displaying what we know innately. I think this song less specific and more aimed at looking back at one's decisions in life; in love; and knowing you messed up.

    As for a rib-cage brain, well, that is a heart. Some lead their lives by emotional intellect.

    General Commentthe first time i heard this song i though it was about him seeing too much in his life and enduring misery with too much emotion, all he wishes is to be relived of his misery, for instance when he says "sieze my body for it lives no more" he is relating to the fact that all his hardships have left him empty and refering to his "ribcage brain" the fact that it is in "bars" like a cage within himself
