It gets dark around here early
because of all the crows
What they want and where they came from
no one really knows
Crows are sour and surly
with reason, I suppose

There are crows, (crows,) crows in the trees
Saying crow things, doing as they please
There are crows, (crows,) crows everywhere
But when I think of you, dear, I don’t care

It gets light around here slowly
because of how it goes
Everyday we hear the same dumb
list of those crows’ woes
Thinking they’re so holy
while leaving mementoes…

There are crows, (crows,) crows in the trees
Saying crow things, doing as they please
There are crows, (crows,) crows everywhere
But when I think of you, dear, I don’t care

I don’t care
because I know you love me,
unlike all the crows lurking above me…

–“Crows” by the Gothic Archies.
