lyrics

scarecrow
scarecrow
scarecrow

pluck out his eyes & then sew them back in later
pluck out his eyes & then sew them back in later

fear, loss, empty soul, stuffed with liars papers
fear, loss, empty soul, stuffed with liars papers

scarecrow
scarecrow

freedom aside have you lost your patience?
trapped in the dark by a fearful hatred
there must have been those who had used up your trust?
picking your stitches & pushing their luck
