There's a black crow sitting across from me;
His wiry legs are crossed
And he's dangling my keys he even fakes a toss

from Bon Iver – Re: Stacks Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

The black crow is depression; the depression Justin is going through at this time. The keys are the gateway to a better and happier life- but the crow holds onto them and does not throw them back. He fakes a toss- granting a glimmer of hope that things will get better- but doesn’t follow through.
