Here are the full lyrics, courtesy lyricsmania.com: Nobody knew what the raven would do If he found it was rain in your hands Like a dog set on wheels you will lope down the street From the sound of the scratch in his claws As the buildings who hide you knew nothing bout time But an arrow just brushin' your chin You said, "Damn be this wind is still movin' on in To the bones and the bed of my soul." You said, "Damn be this wind it's still movin' on in To the bones and the bed of my soul." Like a fox on the run from the well-informed son With the bearin's for cannonball love Just like nobody said where that eagle was fed 'Till you stood on the black cross in June Just like nobody said where that eagle was fed 'Till you stood on the black cross in June And nobody said that the raven was dead, So you hid all your tears in the grass. Sure, it could look like dew, but they're laughin' at you And they'll send in their clowns when you're lost. Sure, it could look like dew, but they're laughin' at you And they'll send in the clowns when you're lost. You said, "Damn be this wind it's still movin' on in To the bones and the bed of my soul."
