The things a crow puts in his nest
they are always things he finds that shine best
somehow he'll find
a shiny dime
a silver twine
from a valentine
the crows all bring
them shiny things

leave me alone you big old moon
the light you cast is just a liar
you're like the crows
cause if it glows
you're dressed to go
you guessed I know
you'll always bring
them shiny things

well I'm not dancing here tonight
but things are bound to turn around
the only thing
I want that shines
is to be king
there in your eyes
to be your only
shiny thing


from Orphans: Brawlers, Bawlers & Bastards (Remastered), released November 21, 2006
