  • Face down on a broken street
    There's a man in the corner
    In a pool of misery
    I'm in white van
    As a red sea covers the ground

    Metal crash
    I can't tell what it is
    But I take a look
    And now I'm sorry I did
    5:30 on a Friday night
    Thirty three good people cut down

    I don't believe anymore
    I don't believe anymore

    Face down on a pillow of shame
    There are some girls with a needle
    Tryin' to spell my name
    My body's not a canvas
    My body's now a toilet wall

    I don't believe anymore
    I don't believe anymore

    Raised by wolves
    Stronger than fear
    Raised by wolves
    We were raised by wolves
    Raised by wolves
    Stronger than fear
    If I open my eyes
    You disappear

    Running wild
    Running wild

    Boy sees his father
    Crushed under the weight
    Of a cross in a passion
    Where the passion is hate
    Blue mink Ford
    I'm gonna detonate in your den

    Blood in the house
    Blood on the street
    The worst things in the world
    Are justified by belief
    Registration 1385-WZ

    I don't believe anymore
    I don't believe anymore

    Raised by wolves
    Stronger than fear
    Raised by wolves
    We were raised by wolves
    Raised by wolves
    Stronger than fear
    If I open my eyes
    You disappear

  • Philippe from Yellowknife, CanadaI suspect that this song could possibly be on the soundtrack of a movie supposed to be release next year. Here is what I found after a little research...
