Crows

Recorded by Walt Wilkins - Streetlight (2016)

Hungry wolves at my door
Every night there’s one wolf more
I can hear you
Crows all up in my tree
I know you got your eyes on me
I can feel them

     And I know you can already taste my bones
     I know it’s your job not to leave me alone
     It’s the same game for us all
     Trying to hold trouble to a draw

There's a snake in the shade playing hard to see
He’d be set for days if he gets hold of me
I’m gonna step lightly
There’s junk in the water and in the air
Man it's everywhere
And it's just looking for a home

     And I know you can already taste my bones
     I know it’s your job not to leave me alone
     It’s the same game for us all
     Trying to hold trouble to a draw

It’s a midway walk past the carney’s call
You knock down the bottles or you lose it all
While you’re trying to win that big stuffed bear
Your ex-wife, the taxman, and some fire ants too
They were up on the corner asking me about you
You might take the long way home

     And I know you can already taste my bones
     I know it’s your job not to leave me alone
     It’s the same game for us all
     Trying to hold trouble to a draw
     Trying to hold trouble to a draw
