Ravens In The Library Lyrics

One flies in to case the joint, boldly struts around. Two fly in to make it three, laugh a while and knock each other down. Four flies in with a frowning walk gains a laugh from out a squawk but it's five who owns the place and proves it with a look, stopping six and seven in their tracks from smuggling a book.

Words within our grasp--do we let go? Do we fly heavily with the weight of what we know?

My friend bids me come and see the ravens in the library setting quiet pages free.

One for fiction, two for truth, three for bikes and bathing suits four for scifi/fantasy five loves art and ancient skulls six eats periodicals seven lives in poetry

(One for sorrow, two for joy, three for girls and four for boys, five for silver, six for gold, seven for a secret never told!)

One hangs out on the drama shelves but keeps the monologues to herself two and three are studying jewels Four reads all about the Huns five won't share the shiny ones six and seven label molecules

(One crow sorrow, two crows mirth three a wedding, four a birth five crows silver, six crows gold, seven ravens, curious and bold!)

Words within our grasp--do we let go? Do we fly heavily with the weight of what we know?

hours of study flying by words soaked up by beady eyes long debates into the night pages flying everywhere seek the language word by word like the black and clever bird never let it bring you down all the things we haven't figured out

My friend bids me come and see the ravens in the library setting quiet pages free (knitting up the 'raveled sleeve of care pages flying everywhere)

Seven reads about the gods, chuckles to herself; to the rest, she never lets on. Try to catch a glimpse of them bickering like mortal men- feathers on the sidewalk.

If you heard a raven say such horrible words as the ones you may have heard in your day to day, would it make you choose your own more carefully around the ones you love?

my friend bids me come and see the ravens in the library setting quiet pages free. (Knitting up the sleeve of care pages flying everywhere.)
