Hymn For A Scarecrow, a song by Joe Hawley.

Song Meanings[edit]

Theory #1: The scarecrow is Jesus.

Trivia[edit]

Hymn For A Scarecrow is in 6/8 time. There seems to be a tornado during this song, an obvious nod to the movie The Wizard of Oz which also famously features a scarecrow in it. Ross Federman makes his singing debut in this song, performing the "the wind knows" refrain in the coda, while Bora Karaca whistles.



Lyrics[edit]

You hang around for a living
Somewhere between all the land & the sky
Being by never forgiving
Nobody knows you and neither do I

Birds may believe at a distance
You wear a grin and keep perfectly still
Driven away with persistence
I wonder if they have wondered or will ever wonder
Ever wonder

Farmer Jim hums when he's all alone
He may imagine you heard and he knew
You wouldn't hear what he might have known
I wonder whether he wonders if you ever wonder
Ever wonder

Oh,
Scarecrow
Maybe the wind knows
Whether you wonder
Who's calling your name

Scarecrow
Maybe the wind knows
Whether you wonder
If you are to blame

Mother Earth's love whispered to me (and it wasn't her fault)
Real is a feeling and feeling is real
All of you are flowing through me
But you wouldn't know how to fathom or feel
When the wind blows
The wind knows
The wind knows

Oh,
Scarecrow
Maybe the wind knows
Whether you wonder
Who's calling your name

Shame how nobody knows you
Only who wonders if you are to blame

Saving the grain of your golden domain
Without even reasoning why
The crows seem to know where you need them to go
Igniting a spark in their minds so they circle and fly
Fly

You hang around for a living
Blown in the wind like a pinned butterfly
Monarch of ever forgiving
Some of us wonder if you want to die

Would you want to die?

How I wonder
Ever wonder
(The wind knows)
