99% Of Us Is Failure Lyrics Question

Recommended Posts

In the song, 99% of Us is Failure the lyric is "Blackbird come the break of dawn". What do you think that means?


I know that the blackbird is a symbol of temptation. I just can't quite piece it together....

it also just means some kind of omen, bad luck, the signalling of shitty times.


Also, in The Raven its been interpreted as the foresight of impending depression. Read that poem from the perspective of someone who knows they are bipolar, without the medical terminology and it makes a lot of sense.
