Old Crows Lyrics

Old Crows Lyrics by Alexisonfire :
[Verse 1: George Pettit]
Old crows ride in the mouth of the beast
Sleep beneath its tongue, cradled by its teeth
We roam from shore to shore
From the open sky to the ocean floor
The more we move the less we are ourselves
And when we finally stop, we’ve changed to something else

[Pre-Chorus: Dallas Green]
As rapid as a river flows
As frigid as the cold wind can blow
As devious as the devil’s grin
Our blood is cold and we’ve shed our skin

[Chorus: Wade MacNeil, Dallas Green & George Pettit]
Now, we are not the kids we used to be
Stop wishing for yesterday
We are not the kids we used to be
Stop wishing for yesterday
We are not the kids we used to be
We are not the kids we used to be
Stop wishing for yesterday

[Verse 2: Dallas Green]
The crows are calling, seems the end is near
They’re spelling out our names, yet we have no fear
Oh, the damage a man can do
When ambition takes over his search for the truth
Sometimes life just gets the best of us
Some things in life will get the best of us

[Chorus: Wade MacNeil, Dallas Green & George Pettit]
Now, we are not the kids we used to be
Stop wishing for yesterday
We are not the kids we used to be
Stop wishing for yesterday
We are not the kids we used to be
Stop wishing for yesterday
We are not the kids we used to be
Stop wishing for yesterday
Wishing for yesterday

[Bridge: George Pettit]
Every skyline beats in my chest
Somewhere between love and sadness
This is our fate, this is our test
We ride in the mouth of madness

[Pre-Chorus: Dallas Green & Wade MacNeil]
As rapid as a river flows
As frigid as the cold wind can blow
As devious as the devil’s grin
Our blood is cold and now, we’ve shed our skin

[Chorus: Wade MacNeil, Dallas Green & George Pettit]
Now, we are not the kids we used to be
Stop wishing for yesterday
We are not the kids we used to be
Stop wishing for yesterday
We are not the kids we used to be
Stop wishing for yesterday
We are not the kids we used to be
Stop wishing for yesterday

[Outro: George Pettit]
Wishing for yesterday
Wishing for yesterday
