Lyrics for Crow

When crow makes a mistake

There is no mercy, no second chance

The vultures will circle and wait

Black velvet between the yellow lines Black velvet between the yellow lines

When crow makes a mistake

The flight of swallows all snicker and gasp

To whom much is given there is much to take In a free fall six seconds

Black velvet between the yellow lines

And in that moment before the end – Time becomes a big blue sky

He remembers the first time drafting on his mother’s wing

He stepped o the wire, he stepped o the wire, he stepped o the wire

When crow makes a mistake

The honest corvid admits—that could have been me

One part nature, three parts fate ‘Cause too much rejection only makes you weak

Black velvet between the yellow lines Black velvet between the yellow lines
