about

All profits of this track will go towards funding the new album, due to be released Spring 2016.

"King Of Crows is a harsh look at the realities of a society gone mad. We pulled no punches whilst writing this and as always we feel the need to point out what's wrong, as artists."

lyrics

If I could pull apart the thesis
The mantra of the elitist
Like the Mona Lisa smile
The secrets cloaked in the genius
Pulling the wool over our eyes
Protect the mass from the fire
Like the shroud of Turin
They used to mask the messiah
In a country of liars
who has the most to lose
Is it the 1%
Or those whose rights they abuse
Place your trust and your life
Into the hands of a clown
Why don't you step onto the stage
Just don't look down

Can you hear the sound?
This king had lost his crown
It's overrated compensate it with a frown
It's going down today
I said my will is my way
Every choice made is to stay
My voice will guide the voiceless

Illuminate the darkness
And elevate the masses
We'll find the truth in this room of rumours
Soon as the swooning turns to ashes
The realisation of a nation
being run by fascists
You picked apart our picket fence
And tried to pull it past us
And if you open your mouth
They'll label you a danger
Have you believe then deceived
By all these crooks and strangers
But we will take it on the chin
Till we take back the crown
We've found the sound to march to now

It's going down today
My will is my way
It's going, it's going, it's going down.
It's going down today
My will is my way
It's going, it's going, it's going down.

The king of crows has fallen
The king is on his knees
What more will he surrender
For the price of dignity
The king of crows has fallen
The king is on his knees
What more will he surrender
For the price of dignity
