wolves

you walked across an unsettled sea.

I tried to follow and drowned beneath.

everyone I know is bowing at your feet

while I try my best to keep my doubt discreet.

I want to have faith but it doesn’t want me,

so I take these pills so that I can sleep.

[count the stars and see]

I’d have no hope if I wasn’t hopeless,

I wouldn’t be lost if I couldn’t be found.

I’d have no faith if I wasn’t faithless,

I couldn’t rise if I were not in the ground.

if I must accept that you’d die for me,

I can’t help but laugh because you’re so naïve.

see, the men I am and want to be

are juxtaposed dualities.

I’m sought although I can’t appease:

it’s this I simply can’t believe.

[count your loves and see]

I’d have no hope if I wasn’t hopeless,

I wouldn’t be lost if I couldn’t be found.

I’d have no faith if I wasn’t faithless,

I couldn’t rise if I were not in the ground.

I’d be no slave if I had no master,

I wouldn’t be scarred if I didn’t bleed.

I’d be no son if I wasn’t a bastard,

I wouldn’t be chained if I couldn’t be freed.

put my mind to sleep for once and let my spirit soar.

make your way under my skin. the wolves are at my door.
