Well, we followed as the crow flies

They dress him up like a respectable man
Call him by other names whenever they can
But his real name’s tattooed on his red right hand

Only speaks in little white lies
The ghost in the machine, he’s the loaded dice
He’s the plank they can’t take from their own damn eyes

Can’t go north
No east or west
When that bird
Leaves its nest
Cause we followed as the crow flies

He’s the the aftertaste of bitter men
They pass the cup to us and then
Make us swallow hard again and again

Cause we followed as the crow flies
Cause we followed, yeah we followed
As that old crow flies
