The Crow and the Butterfly

This song reminds me of my Mom whose life was stolen by cancer... the nasty black Crow represents cancer and the Butterfly represents what was once her angelic bright life.....

What a punch in the gut. I just watched Beyond the VIdeo about this and had noidea it wasabout the lossof a child (I likened it to the loss ofone of my best friends). The punch is because of several child losses recently, so of course I'm bawling my eyes out with different perspective.

I'm an old bastard of 40. I've loved the likes of the Crue, Whitesnake and ACDC. I got the Sirius Octane and my kids went nuts over your songs. I happened to listen and have gotten into you guys. I just bought your latest CD. I even admit I watched your interview for the CD and was very impressed with all your attitudes. Please no songs about Donkey Shows, although I would find them hillarious, I don't think them appropriate for your main target market. Rock on guys, you absolutely have a fan in me and my kids.

This is the most amazing song. I love it. I am a recovering addict. Your words discrib how it feels to chase it. All your art is beautiful. I cant wait for the next album. My fiance and I are getting matching tat's of The Crow and The Butterfly. He did the art work as he does for most of our tattoo's. Please take my sincere thanks for what you all do. I cant wait to see you live. Thanks Again.

This song has touched me in a way that no other song has. To be honest, most of your songs do. I have been a Shinedown fan for years and can't wait for the next cd (I almost said album, but then I'd be aging myself.....LOL). Anyway, I want my next tattoo to represent the song, "The Crow and the Butterfly". I had this idea to get some of the lyrics tattooed underneath a picture of a crow chasing a butterfly flying over a field of dandelions with the sun shining bright, etc. Not very original, but if I had the words written in your handwriting THAT WOULD BE AMAZING!!!! Maybe you can hook a Shinedown fan up and create an amazing tattoo??? Much love to you and the band!
