Track Name: When Crows Die
When Crows Die
(Music / Lyrics by 555)

The synopsis, it's death, and the karma bestowed.

Verse 1.1 - [2:20]
Hiding behind invisible faith
Surrender myself
Regret all my actions, a penance, a cure
Anguish only exists

I've bonded in sin, I’ve fallen from grace
Tortured emaciation
Burying guilt to live with this flaw,
I’ve risked my salvation

Chorus 1.1 - [3:03]
Watching like guardian angels,
Soaring through midnight skies,
These shadows of death,
Grant me…
The wish of a burial’s dream

Verse 1.2 - [3:25]
Karma's pet, the shadow of night
Holding the keys to our lives
Never forgetting the sinners nor saints
Neglecting the cries (as) we apologize

Corvus of death, you follow tonight
Staring with demonic eyes
Drag me to hell or haunt me for life?
I’ve prayed for redemption

Chorus 1.2 - [4:08]
Watching like guardian angels,
Soaring through midnight skies,
These shadows of death,
Grant me…
The wish of a burial’s dream

Verse 2.1 - [4:32]
Feathered shadow's piercing glares...
Reminding me of sins transpired
Denying truth, excusing (my) actions
I've done no wrong against morality

My eyes, they see with pain and terror
This demon fills my mind with fear
Paranoia, the reaper's tool.
Must pray this ends to save me from myself

Chorus 2.1 - [5:00]
(The) synopsis, it's death...
And the karma bestowed
Guilting me to madness,
But it's my life or it's yours

Verse 2.2 - [5:11]
Running in the time of need
Hiding behind the heart of God,
My struggle with faith and apostasy
I've danced with the devil for far too long

Driven to insanity,
Abandoned all my dreams
This corvus keeps my guilt displayed
It's life must end to set me free.

Chorus 2.2 - [5:39]
(The) synopsis, it's death...
And the karma bestowed
Guilting me to madness,
But it's my life or it's yours

Solo Ed - [6:17]

Verse 3.1 - [7:41]
“I am he, ruler enthroned
Holding grudges, taking souls
Herding lives wherever I roam
Commanding death, at dusk or dawn

I am he, from your burial dreams
King of darkness, cloaked in black
Foreordained to meet in sorrow
Time has come, you will expire”

Chorus 3.1 - [7:57]
(I’ve) murdered the messenger
Karma’s pet is dead.
(My) personal apocalypse
Anticipate revenge

Asphyxiating grip
Now life and flesh depart

Verse 3.2 - [8:13]
“You are he, deceiver of deeds
Apathetic, corrupted mind
Mastering (your own) disharmony
Misanthropic, hateful life

You are he, of sinful acts
Trying to run from destiny
Insolent (towards) humanity
Seek redemption from deities”

Chorus 3.2 - [8:29]
(I’ve) murdered the messenger
Karma’s pet is dead.
(My) personal apocalypse
Anticipate revenge

Asphyxiating grip
Now life and flesh depart

Solo Ed - [8:45]

End - [9:17]
Black Angels of death
Taking the sky
Enslaving our time,
Torn from this world

(Black) Angels of death
From the abyss
Carry our souls
