lyrics

I call out from my deserted ground
But no one comes to catch the sound
I’m surrounded by company
But I don’t hear them calling back to me
You show up with a bad idea
I can’t help but feel free with ya

I am on the stairs watching you
getting shiny and I don’t know why I watch you
shoompah the night away
with firewater and gulps of air
I am on the stairs and I want to go
but I don’t move from the step watching you
People think I’m a queue
But then they give up and walk by

You keep a fire burning in your quiet war
You burn to keep the wolf from the door
So what happens when dreams come?
Do they get to ya or do ya just burn ‘em?
You keep acting like you’re some wolf’s prey
What if she just wants to play with ya?

Chorus

It’s getting hotter on your burning floor
It’s getting harder to ignore
The wolf threatens everything you fear
But nothing’s driving me away from here
You live with the wolf and you don’t even see her
Well here she is burning right through ya

So burn in the dark for me
Burn in the dark with me
Now burn in the dark for me
Burn in your dark with me

Chorus

You’re a bewildered beast when the night’s head is rearing
Panicking out loud but the sun keeps disappearing
