When we set out on this journey
We set our eyes to the distance
We took courage from our numbers
Sometimes we'd glimpse a shadow falling
But our thoughts kept returning
As we turned to go
You'll be food for a carrion crow
Every step we took today
From the wind on the moor so wild
Something the boy said
In the circles we made with our fires
The clouds were like dark riders
We spoke our fears to the captain
For we would never have marched so far

Our thoughts would always stray
To the words of the captain's child

The sun's eye was red as blood
Faces in the mud
I'm too afraid to care, I'm too afraid to know
At the feast of the crow
And asked what his son could know
To be food for a crow
