lyrics

Tom looks up and sees a raven
raven on the wings of night
making shadow out of light

Tom climbs up to kiss the raven
pays no mind to thorn and bramble
feathers more than he can handle

Tom takes raven by the claw
says show me how to fly around
tell me that you never fall
what’s it like to dive to the ground
how can men like me look so small

some birds only prey at night
and think nothing at all of flight
some men only live to die
and never ask their killers why

Tom finds words to sing to raven
sees her with her feathers black
reaches out to touch her back
raven spreads her wings at the sound
Tom goes tumbling back to the ground

raven watches from the trees
head cocked at his broken knees
waiting for his final breath
to feast on ordinary death
