You hear it loud, and it's off beat
these bleeding hearts, flooding the street,
and the city brick, and the cobblestone,
aren't half as hard, as this monotone,
voice that speaks, so soft of breath,
we are our own, until our death,
and the herd below, down on the ground,
is looking up, at nothing looking down...
If you abandon ship, instead of sink with it,
drown in the tide, we swim beside,
there is no link, to which we're bound,
though shelter here, to be found,
and the crow it wails, high off the ground,
dive in the sea, and drink it down...
The poets speak, like they have no name,
like they don't wake up, and go to sleep the same,
and the singers sing, in perfect harmony,
but the words they say, are out of key,
and you may find, that it's all a ghost,
all that you love, and hold close,
so hold it close.
Veiled symbolic poetic imagery, uniquely crafted arrangements, strategic use of metaphor with interconnected wordplay & a
meticulous commitment to the overarching vision & concept is the ethos connecting Crow vs Lion’s body of work, a cauldron of experience & observation thoughtfully expressed.

The most imaginative album I have come across. There is a puzzle in the album artwork & text for you to solve, so make sure to get a physical copy! I like everything they create, give them a listen. Crow vs Lion
