lyrics

One for sorrow
lonely berthing
tree gone fallow
yearning for…
all asunder
wooden quarry
all of flame-fraught
fire-wrought moor.

Thirsty crow, smoky-wing
riddle you this, riddle and sing
an empty vase and a fire-dry nest
where to drink, where to rest?

Crafty crows in an endwise roost
drop their stones on the weeping spruce
weeping spruce, ash and green
longs for stones to raze its grief

The charlatan wind holds its breath
an idling sky whispers death
the smog and the smoke
the crows will all choke
the fledglings croak
of a charlatan wind
and an idling sky that whispers death
of smog and of smoke
of crows that all choke
the fledglings croak.

One for sorrow…

Thirsty crow, smoky-wing
riddle you this, riddle and sing
a windless sky and a char-gagged home
where to fly, where to roam?

Weary crows on a city-wise path
weld their nests with shit and slag
weeping lines, electric green
grease the air with fictile dreams

The charlatan wind holds its breath
an idling sky whispers death
the smog and the smoke
the crows will all choke
the fledglings croak.
the charlatan wind holds its breath
an idling sky whispers death
of smog and of smoke
the crows will all choke
the fledglings croak.

The crows stopper breath to cheat death
a riddling sky whispers myth
the spark and the liar
the birds made of wire

the crows withhold death to cheat

a riddling sky whispers myth
the engineered earth
the phoenix in birth
the charlatan crow holds its breath

and idling time withdraws death

Carbon eggs and ice
avian machine
wings of glass and sheen
beak-made trickster gleans

One for sorrow
two for mirth
three for the harrowing
four for birth
five for silver
six for gold
seven for secrets
that must be told
eight for endings
nine for hel
ten for murder
ten the bells
ten times knelling
ten the spell
ten too many
ten to quell.
