Birdcage Head

This is a character who's been in my head for a while. In fact, he appears in the "Grand Finale" song on the Masquerade album.

"There once was a young squire with a birdcage for a head. A crow sat on the perch inside, repeating what he said. And when that lady came inside to clean the birdie's bed, the crow flew right out of the door, and now that boy is dead. But unlike that black birdie who so readily had flown, you better take a deep breath son, 'cause you're not going home."
