Wow @Pleudoniem this is pretty cool!

This actually happened to me in real life you know. Okay, well not the going to Hades part...  ;)
But the crow was literally knocking on my door! I woke up early morning from a deep sleep thinking someone's at the door.  :o  It was a crow standing there looking up at me and had a whole group of friends sitting up on the railing staring in. I, of course, didn't open the door for him.

Okay enough with this.

Very cool song! Nice lyrics & cool intricacies of musical arrangement. Good show!

@Bill from November Sound Haha! The song was partly inspired by Poe's The Raven, although my crow is slightly different in character and it carries a different message to the storyteller. There is a raven in Poe's classic that knocks on the poet's door as a ghost. If you hadn't read that one yet, then you definitely should now. Here is a link:

But I suppose you already know it :) If you did then, then I think it was wise not to open the door  ;D

I can imagine a note of the front door now :-

"NO RAVENS, Salesmen, cold Callers, Religious Groups " 

This song is no surprise at all with a wordsmith like you. What a great irregular - almost jarring feel this track has.

Well done

@MrBouzouki  :lol:

And what if it doesn't seem to bother?  :D

Well  @MrBouzouki  I would say that crows can't read ... ravens, however, probably can.  ;)

Yes @Pleudoniem  I do know the Edgar Allen Poe classic. I was very aware of this poem but I did not think that it could happen in real life. I must admit I do live in the woods so that may make it all the more plausible.

I mean I'm no ornithologist ... it could have been a raven I suppose. But do ravens travel with a whole group of friends like that?

@Bill from November Sound No, crows are usually loners, but rooks travel in groups, as do many jackdaws. I am not an ornithologist either, but my wife is close to one. She can tell many birds apart from the songs they sing. When she tells me they do, I am inclined to believe her. I am not sure how that works for birds on the American continent, though. European rooks often perch in groups on branches in trees.
