  • Lyrics
  • The ones losing justice
    Will pray for it all their lives
    They can and they will skin us
    Oh, one day
    Oh, can you hear their cries?
    As far as the men can run from us
    We're following the trail of blood
    So hunt, my young ones

    I have always known the storm would come
    Listen now my young ones
    This is not a story I tell
    Of midnight, moon and sun

    Are you ready to walk the forbidden road?
    Learn again what we tried to forget?
    the dark, and I'll take over you

    We had a common past, an ancient bond
    That people once broke
    We would only take what we need,
    They would harvest our wheat

    But they hunted us all
    We ended the lives of their past times
    and like times ago
    the ones are feeding the soul

    But the war still went on

    Praying for the moon, hiding for the day
    These might be our last times
    I am gonna see you taken away
    Heading for the dawn of our way of life
    You're welcome to give it your best try
    Look me in the eyes of wolf
    and This ain't your fairy tale

    It took so many years to teach them
    How to cry wolf
    We made the people serve the purpose
    Those ignorant fools (I am a fool!)
    It's not what's been done
    use something you've learned
    I've learned from the ones above you
    Fear is your deepest wisdom
    For these last days

    Praying for the moon, hiding for the day
    These might be our last times
    I am gonna see you taken away
    Heading for the dawn, of our way of life
    You're welcome to give it your best try
    Look me in the eyes of wolf
    And This ain't your fairy tale

    The ones losing justice
    Will pray for it all their lives
    They can and they will skin us
    Oh, one day
    Oh, can you hear their cries

    As far as the men can run from us
    We're following the trail of blood
    So hunt, my young ones
    The pack they'll always feed is back

    On your last day, remember
    We never cried
    It does not exist for us
    The don't fear the wolf,
    But the wild within
    No glory to the way this must end
    This is the story I told
    I'm falling before you

    Praying for the moon, hiding for the day
    These might be our last times
    I am gonna see you taken away
    Heading for the dawn of our way of life
    You're welcome to give it your best try
    Look me in the eyes of wolf
    and This ain't your fairy tale

    The ones losing justice
    Will pray for it all their lives
    They can and they will skin us
    Oh, one day
    Oh, can you hear their cries

    As far as the men can run from us
    We're following the trail of blood
    So hunt, my young ones
    The pack they'll always feed is back! Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
