lyrics

T H E W O L V E S ! T H E W O L V E S !

THE FRACTURED SLEEP OF THE FRAIL AND WEAK
THE SENTENCE THAT I SERVE
KNEELING AT THE HEELS OF THE MADNESS OF MAN
IN WAKING DREAMS AND SHIFTING SANDS
REARED ON LIES BY BLINDED MINDS
PROCLAIMING THAT YOUR FREE AND
DRESSING UP THE MYTHS SO THEY DONT LOOK OLD
THE PLATITUDES OF ANIMALS

I LOOK THE WORLD IN THE EYE AND JUST SEE ANIMALS
THERE IS NO PROVIDENCE
AND NO REDEMPTION

WE LIVE IN GRIEF PURSUING PEACE
BUT NEVER REACH THE GOAL
SO I LEARNT TO ASK NEARLY NOTHING OF LIFE
BUT STILL THESE CRUSTS I'VE BEEN DENIED
IT FEELS AS IF I NEVER LIVED
JUST BADLY READ A SCRIPT
MY INNERMOST THOUGHTS WERE THE FALLACIES
OF A PHANTOM SELF, AN ABSENTEE

I LOOKED THE WORLD IN THE EYE AND JUST SAW ANIMALS
WHY SHOULD THERE BE AN ESCAPE?
THERE'S NO SALVATION FOR WOLVES
