lyrics

The caw, the caw, the caw, the calls of a black crow have jolted me awake like my mother's clapping hands on a school-day morning. Calls? No, more like demands. The takers good at taking know your goodness can't be shaken at the right time. Damned are the wakers - hostile noise makers! They will shake you for a dime. Shake you for a dime./ And stars upon stars shine down like rewards undeserved on hearts upon hearts beating in silence undisturbed./ I know, I know, I know, I know what you're thinking. You think I haven't tried it all. I hear spiders on the wall: octo-lead-feet. Spiders on the wall. Maybe I just don't understand, maybe I'm part of a bigger plan. Maybe I'm just lazy. Doesn't seem so wrong sleeping through the dawn, but it drives them wakers mad. Makes them crazy./ And stars upon stars shine down like rewards undeserved on hearts upon hearts beating in silence undisturbed.
