The Crow’s Song


A barren field

Scarred by war

No living thing in sight

Save a solitary Crow

And the Crow sings her song


Us and Them

Our land and Theirs

Fight for control

Our Mother divided

By warring tribes


Brothers and Sisters

Controlled by dividing hate

Fighting for a cause

Silencing the Dove


Who is right and who is wrong?

A meaningless answer, 

written in blood.

And the Crow sings her song.

Who is right and who is wrong?

The soldiers march along,

Unknowing pawns.

And the Crow sings her song.


Us and Them

The difference so clear

Like night and day

One man chains another

Enslaving his brother

Brothers and Sisters

Controlled by dividing hate

Fighting for a cause

Silencing the Dove


Who is right and who is wrong?

A meaningless answer, 

written in blood.

And the Crow sings her song.

Who is right and who is wrong?

The soldiers march along,

Unknowing pawns.

And the Crow sings her song.


Us and Them

Saints and Sinners

Unholy Wars

Supported by faith

In the name of hate


Unjust Justice,

Veils hatred and revenge

Defenders of truth

Selling their lies

Always in the right

Silencing the Dove

And the Crow sings ever on.


Us and Them

Civil and savage

Scrambling to claim

Dominion of the Earth

And over all Mankind


Us and Them

The good and the bad

Ruled by greed

Ruling with fear

Of annihilation


Brothers and Sisters

Controlled by dividing hate

Fighting for a cause

Silencing the Dove


Who is right and who is wrong?

A meaningless answer, 

written in blood.

And the Crow sings her song.

Who is right and who is wrong?

The soldiers march along,

Unknowing pawns.

And the Crow sings her song.


Brothers and Sisters

Controlled by dividing hate

Fighting for a cause

Silencing the Dove


Who is right and who is wrong?

A meaningless answer, 

written in blood.

And the Crow sings her song.

Who is right and who is wrong?

The soldiers march along,

Unknowing pawns.

And the Crow sings her song.


Away into the night

The crow takes her plight

A red sun rises

And out of the East

 

The Dove is released
