Aesop Rock - Crows 1 Lyrics

[Kimya Dawson]
Birds of a black
Black feather stick together forever and ever and they always remember you
And all of the shit you do
They pass it to the baby birdies and then they remember too
Little baby bluebird's eyes turn black
Without forgetting the face of the guy in the mask
When you see me baby will you scream or will you laugh?
Little baby bluebird's eyes turn black

[Aesop Rock]
4 and 20 gory pantone black crows shredding innards
The silouettes are fencing lefty scissors
Separating horn and hoof as own arpeggiators
They piggy back the tombs of all your deadest friends and neighbors
By the getty image, green-cheese moon
Dead-of-winter shit, graveyard tchk! tchk!
Shifter shit, brother was a face card
Crown like a heart-shaped tunnel of woven branches leaning in over his hydro-plaining pace car chase...
Wait up let me isolate the bass more
Gate of god's acre
Aim to rake the snow off each forsaken name here
Supposedly closure'l free the vipers out the bosom
Personally I think it's a bunch of bullshit
Prisoners, tradition is for lovers
God forbid he flip the witch against her coven on some ‘dip or play the dozens‘
Now I baptize skips in larvae and dental records
On a little plot pregnant with 6 million sentenceenders
And the tech support for tragedy's emphatically horrendous
Teenage operators explaining what bated breath is
Pass, I wish it were something I could diagram on a napkin so you won't feel so detached if it should happen to you privately
Publicly your shadows'll cat call back
Happy to split the button eye and burlap doll
Crack the crypt
Bats eject like cousin death's wing-ed Iapdogs ricocheting sonar of the sacrilege
Now let me slow this whole shit down for all you half-goat cowards
I'll even grit my teeth for you
I am so completely off the god-damn grid it's not a question of addressing me, I
T's "what do these symbols under the dresser mean"
Perhaps a little dash of karma chameleons through the entropy for good/young
Could've used a good lung
Still, proximity to corpses wasn't nothing to the kid but unforgiving science or cinematic horrors
Fast forward, my knee in the gut of a glass
"remember that cow in the dean's seems awkward
And I know your people donated pints to the same pavement but for ash and bone to share a space with strangers seems outrageous, ain't it?
Maybe a dialog of howls that reshapes thejowls and face somehow relates to whatever you have found among a thousand cloned shrines, either way - dope stone lion

[Kimya Dawson]
And they call to let you know your friend is dead in a box
The crows have the tools to get the meat out of the box
Scientific, ritualistic, headstone cold foxes still rot
I'm not gonna rot, no, fuck that snot
You can let them let you rot, man
But I'm not going to watch
I'm not gonna stand atop your plot
I love you friend, but I'm just not
On the other hand if your ashes are scattered in the sea
I will swim in the sea and you'll be with me
And if your shit is scattered at the roots of a tree
I will climb that tree

[Aesop Rock]
Everything you think you're hiding shows
In the way you view the graves like a string of tiny thrones
Messages you'd tucked away for keeps has resurfaced to be heard amidst the butchery and beaks
You don't want the passengers to pass
You want each cow taxidermy'd fatter than the last
Mausoleum lighting is a rush
While it might enhance a silhouette it might expose a crutch
A proud chest puffed to the heavens
Holds nothing if we're cutting past the muscle and the tendon
And we will be cutting past the muscle and the tendon...

    Aesop Rock is the best white rapper ever. Said the black guy.. #ADOS

  2. Quin McFly

    Aes May have a song for every problem in my life

  3. Tukoi Jarrett

    ok so get this
    that intro bit is actually true
    crows can remember people by their faces
    they also tell other crows about these things
    like the intro basically is spot on with the truth
    i think thats neat

  4. Jackson Dunno

    I watched crows on PBS too! 🍻💀🍻

  5. Occurrences

    Dropping in from the other side of the balsa petroglyphs to say, it's strange out here. I move through a prism of jostled nerve and heavy phlogiston; timorous catcallers and broken pallets, bent bars and spun angles. Ghost with a face, watching the organization fail itself. Mr. Blister, bless your sister. Ms. Mgmt, yield Plantagenet. Whorls and vortices, spires and spirals. Spirit is a bone, the nickels are bugged, open up first, but all your base are belong to you only when the script is acted out. Weird goddamn place for a loveseat.

  6. Michelle King

    Well Aes, it's almost your birthday! Just a couple more hours so I'll go ahead and say happy birthday!!!! I am a very big fan of yours. Seriously, periodically I get on a kick where I literally listen to your entire discography for a few months, the songs parade through my head, repeating, changing. I love it. I feel like I'm privy to important info when I listen to you. You are enriching my life daily through my playlist. I release my feelings through music, I'm trying to not take medicine because that shit is like a bandaid, and they don't know what to prescribe people alot of times, so they just start sticking people in shit until something works. I say, fuck that. I'm gonna deal with my feelings without a bunch of fucking pills. Any way that's probably tmi. But I dgaf.

    Nicholas Gustafson

    Late reply but I feel your comment so much. I feel like I've been in a similar place for a long time. Without going into too much detail I just hope you're doing great now. Thanks for putting yourself out there, it means a lot as someone who finds it hard to open up.

  7. Psy Duck

    I praise this album for being significantly darker than most of what he’s put out, and of the setlist on Skelethon, I’m a firm believer that this is the album’s epitome in terms of theming and composition. To think this was like, his first self-produced album.

  8. arex82

    Mausoleum lighting is a rush
    While it might enhance the silhouette
    It might expose the crutch 🔥🔥🔥

  9. Frabie Burbamdez

    That BEAT tho

  10. Joseph Gregor

    bass at the end... omg

  11. elvis92795

    Psy Duck

    elvis92795 What? How do you know that?

  12. Erin Graham

    I have a playlist on my channel with alot of his songs in it check it out

    Minus Logic

    Holy shit that's a perfect playlist thanks dude

  13. Sludgemouth

    This translates far beyond the simple idea of a graveyard. what if the buried had more good to contribute to the world but were interred too soon to finish their work

  14. TrueNorth StreetVision



    Mine too.

    2BallsAnd aCane

    Those who know don't say, those who say don't know...

    Chris Maple

    @Burntshmallow wrong. Album.


    @Chris Maple That's the joke, you sullen, cowardly, harlot.

    Daniel Martinez


  15. Devin Anderson

    I'm fairly certain that's Kimya Dawson in the beginning.


    +Devin Anderson if you like uncluded then how were you not certain it was her


    yep Moldy Peaches

    Abiru Kobushi

    Yeah her and aesop wrote children songs together i think at one point, they are fans of each other and friends

    Strictly Rahmen

    Kimya is featured on Aeos songs and Aes is featured on a few of kimya's, not to mention the album they have out.

    Strictly Rahmen

    @Abiru Kobushi children songs or the uncluded?

  16. Spencer Clark

    everything you're hiding shows, in the way you view the graves as a string of tiny thrones. it's about how fucked up graveyards are. and kimya has mentioned in a few of her songs that she wants to be cremated


    yup, she also wants her life to be celebrated rather than sobbed to in the track called "Bats"

    Rank Savage

    Some speculate it may be a knock at Aesop's old collaborator El-P for, in Aes' eyes, capitalizing off of the death of close friend and fellow rapper, Camu Tao

    oliver David

    Spencer Clark
    Some cultures would take there dead out to tall rocks or build scafolding and leave the body up there so that the birds could eat them and their spirit could get back into the sky.

  17. Evan Shotton


    digital footprint

    calm down, Evan

  18. Mallory Herbst
