  • Remember the moment you left me alone and
    Broke every promise you ever made
    I was an ocean, lost in the open
    Nothing could take the pain away

    So you can throw me to the wolves
    Tomorrow I will come back
    Leader of the whole pack
    Beat me black and blue
    Every wound will shape me
    Every scar will build my throne

    The sticks and the stones that
    You used to throw have
    Built me an empire
    So don't even try
    To cry me a river
    'Cause I forgive you
    You are the reason I still fight

    So you can throw me to the wolves
    Tomorrow I will come back
    Leader of the whole pack
    Beat me black and blue
    Every wound will shape me
    Every scar will build my throne

    So you can throw me to the wolves
    Tomorrow I will come back
    Leader of the whole pack
    Beat me black and blue
    Every wound will shape me
    Every scar will build my throne

    I'll leave you choking
    On every word you left unspoken
    Rebuild all that you've broken
    And now you know
    I'll leave you choking
    On every word you left unspoken
    Rebuild all that you've broken
    And now you know
    Every wound will shape me
    Every scar will build my throne

    So you can throw me to the wolves
    Tomorrow I will come back
    Leader of the whole pack
    Beat me black and blue
    Every wound will shape me
    Every scar will build my throne Writer/s: JORDAN KEITH ATTWOOD FISH, LEE DAVID MALIA, MATTHEW KEAN, MATTHEW STEPHEN NICHOLLS, OLIVER SCOTT SYKES
