The House Of Wolves

Album: Sempiternal (2013)
  • Show me a sign, show me a reason to give
    A solitary fuck about your god damn beliefs
    I'm going blind, but one thing's clear
    Death is the only salvation you'll fear

    Brick by brick by brick
    Brick by brick by brick

    What you call faith, I call a sorry excuse
    Cloak and daggers murder the truth
    The bitter taste, there's nothing else
    I'll bow for your king when he shows himself

    Brick by brick by brick
    These walls begin to cave in
    The house of wolves you built
    Is burning a thousand times

    Show me your face, show me a reason to think,
    My soul can be saved if I sell you my sins
    I'm going blind, but one thing's clear
    Death is the only salvation for me

    Brick by brick by brick
    These walls begin to cave in
    The house of wolves you built
    Is burning a thousand times

    (The wolves you built) (the wolves you built)
    (The nest of wolves you built)
    The house of wolves you built
    Will burn just like a thousand suns

    And when you die, the only kingdom you'll see
    Is 2 foot wide and 6 foot deep

    And when you die, the only kingdom you'll see
    Is two foot wide and six foot deep
    And when you die, the only kingdom you'll see
    Is two foot wide and six foot deep

    Brick by brick by brick
    Brick by brick by brick
    Brick by brick by brick
    These walls begin to cave in
    The house of wolves you built
    Is burning a thousand times

    Brick by brick by brick
    These walls begin to cave in
    The house of wolves you built
    Will burn just like a thousand suns

    You said you want me
    Now I'm here, now I'm here, now I'm here
    You said you want me
    Now I'm here, now I'm here, now I'm here Writer/s: Jordan Fish, Lee Malia, Oliver Sykes
