The lyrics to this song were controversial from the start. The Golden Crow is an obvious reference to the Jinwu, an ancient magical race believed to have been hunted to extinction by the others.
The Wings of the Morning is a reference to the legend that the Jinwu were able to become firebirds, making them the origin of the phoenix legend. Sienna explained, "I never believed they all died. They had the power to be reborn from the flames. How can you kill something born in its own death. It never made sense to me."
This loving ode to the enemies of the dragonkin led many to attack Sienna and A Chained Thirst for corrupting minors and boasting subversive lyrics.
Ken, who sings the song, once said, "Every time I perform this song, I think of all the hunted, Jinwu, Gentry, Fae, Drymenn, and even the Wrecca. Hunters have come for all of us. It is good to remember, not all of us escape."
