You are a magpie raven-winged
And you have collected me to line your nest
Along with all the other things you need
To keep you warm

I am a charm to dangle from your neck
To swing in time to your design
To stay or fall to pieces at your hand

And when your insides find your mouth
Shut up shut up shut up you say
You don't know what you're talking about
When you can't see your way out
You want to scream and shout

They drop us bits of gold and shiny stones to line our crowns
So they can see us clearly when the firing squad makes its rounds

Toss me a crumb down from the table
I will eat it if I'm able
It falls heavy on me, sometimes I find it hard to eat

And when we show them that we are strong
Shut up shut up shut up they say
We can see what you're doing wrong
We've seen all along
We are going to tear you down

The purest grain so seldom seen
Imagining its pearly sheen
I'm sorry for then I know they can only dream

And when we show them that we are strong
Shut up shut up shut up they say
We can see what you're doing wrong
We've seen all along
We are going to tear you down
