lyrics

Oh, what a wild situation was today.
I waited eons by the big-city-bound train
and sitting pondering while I whistled patiently
some wolves from nowhere gathered gangs and I split the scene.

And one could say I've been a coward at this point.
Though, I'd have made my choice said I let's split this joint.
And although relatively unaccompanied the skeleton of my own daddy chased round me.
And this is what they spoke:

“Oh child, don't run.
You should spare them for a sunny day.
Neglect these ones.
They haven't yet learned of the land you belong.”

“You belong with all the kings.
The babe of wolves you'll be.”

Woa! Father, what's this bother?
When did you plan on spilling the beans?

“Kid, I think it's time that you...
you learned to kill it too...
the kingdom clandestine of wolves, and you will rule!”

No! Hold on, wait up!
Now what the heck is going down?
I'm tripping out.
Could this be fact?
Can I believe?

And when I freak about it,
I do recall some fighting
when I was barely child.
But then again it's been a minute.
Now that I'm 27, and dodged morose bloodletting,
was it my pop was hiding?
Was his just feigning dying?

Ooh wah-o-wah ooh.
wah-o-wah ooh.
wah-o-wah oo-ooh.

And one could say I was a coward at this point.
Though, I'd have made my choice said I let's split this joint.
And although relatively unaccompanied the skeleton of my own daddy chased round me.
And this is what I said:

“I'll tip my cap
and I'll deny this pack the dinner they planned.
I'll knock them flat
and they'll know who they've crossed and where they belong.”

We are the ghosts of your past
sent back to straighten your act.
Do you believe in fate, little one?
Do you sleep when the day is done?

How do you deal in an ordinary world
when the saints are a pain and the flags are unfurled?
