Wolves

Light all the torches and wake up the King

The smoke you've ignored is a flame you can't contain

We circle the walls and claw at the dirt

We growl from our guts and howl until it hurts

 

I told her "come with me

And I can take you from this place now

Somewhere these roads don't go

A place that we can start again"

I grabbed her hand and pulled her close

She looked at me and said

"Hey I don't even know your name

 

But I am ready to explode

Like a tiger in a circus

Cracking whips are all I know

I'm searching for a sense of purpose"

 

We are the wolves at the gate

Our numbers growing every day, yeah

You can't fight us all, no

No, you can't fight

We are the wolves at the wall

We break in like a waterfall, yeah

You can't fight us all, no

You can't fight

 

The water is breaching the walls of the dam

Trampling dreams in a rush to higher land

 

Are you ready to explode

Like a tiger in a circus?

This cage is all I've ever known

But now you've given me a purpose

 

We are the wolves at the gate

Our numbers growing every day, yeah

You can't fight us all, no

You can't fight

We are the wolves at the wall

We break in like a waterfall, yeah

You can't fight us all, no

And we are not going away

 

Roaming in numbers and chasing the scent

Circling in for the kill

And you are the winter, the long discontent

We won't stop till we've had our fill

 

(We are the wolves)

Roaming in numbers and chasing the scent

(We are the wolves)

Circling in for the kill

(We are the wolves)

And you are the winter, the long discontent

(We are the wolves)

We won't stop till we've had our fill

 

We are the wolves

We are the wolves

We are the wolves
