The Immaculate Crows

The Immaculate Crows are a Brisbane-based Australian Alternative band formed originally by Bruce Neilsen and Chris Allen in 1982. Their second singer was David Page who would have been one of the first (if not the first) indigenous frontmen/vocalists in an Australian band. David had been a teenage pop-star. He was the first Australian to be signed to a Motown label. He sadly passed away in 2016. The band broke up in 1984 and Bruce formed Insurrection and The Popes before playing with The Immaculate Crows again briefly in 1984. They did songs that covered a broad spectrum of genres including punk, new wave, psychedelic, progressive rock and pop. Bruce and former member Mark Hocknell reunited in 2020 and several new songs have been released since. The Immaculate Crows is now a partnership where Bruce writes the lyrics, music and arrangements and Mark produces and plays on the initial tracks. Bruce also plays on the initial tracks. Carolyn Neilsen records vocals and extra tracks as well as doing the final mix which is sent to Kagen Step for mastering. Vocalists are sourced locally.

BIRD IN THE SKY 
(MUSIC AND LYRICS BY BRUCE NEILSEN)

The whole world is in a mess
Nothing seems to change
If I could be
A bird so free
I’d fly away 
From this misery

Revolution and ideology
War and apathy
They’re all the same 
If people have to die
I’d rather be a bird
In the sky

Rather be a bird in the sky
Rather be a bird in the sky
Rather be a bird flying high
Rather be a bird in the sky

The whole world keeps on turning
Crosses keep on burning
The Ku Klux Klan
Do all they can
To keep their hatred
Going

Fools and politicians
With their shallow, hollow
Predictions
Saying democracy
Is you and me
Let’s forget about poverty

Rather be a bird in the sky
Rather be a bird in the sky
Rather be a bird flying high
Rather be a bird in the sky

Nuclear power and desolation
One way to unite
The whole world nation
Is pollute everything
Create one bad dream
Death’s sweet inspiration

Hatred everywhere
Appears where
You don’t expect it there
The civilized lands
There’s madmen’s plans
Turning everything to dust

Rather be a bird in the sky
Rather be a bird in the sky
Rather be a bird flying high
Rather be a bird in the sky

Bird in the sky
Bird in the sky
There’s a bird in the sky
Flying high

Bird in the sky
Flying high
Free as a bird
In the sky

Flying high
Flying high
Free as a bird
In the sky
