lyrics

Oh gentle cloud of sorrow
Clothing a moonlit sky
How well you paint my shadow
Can you hear my heartfelt cry?

I gave you filth and art
Exposed demon and child
If I’m to slit my heart
You’d taste the Blood seeking a high

Hunt the silence in a scream
Hungry wolves howl inside my heart, aha…

You shine within me sleeping
I seem to measure dreams
Another world I leap in
Spirit in ethereal realm

I will go out tonight
Bred from a shabby cloth
Wait for the blinding light
Hit till I die like a moth

Seek the silence in a scream
Hungry wolves howl inside my heart, aha…

Stripped from the wild, however brave
Hungry wolves roam round hungry graves

Following ancient trails
I’ll keep away from harm
Sew the scar tear the veil
Echo the clan’s alarm
Oh if I lost reason
I haven’t lost my aim
What if I lost my reason?
Did I comply with brain?
True if I fail to reason
I overcame the game
Conforming to no season
My soul you’ll never tame
In loyalty or treason
You can call me any name

Hunt the silence in a scream
Hungry wolves howl inside my heart aha…

Stripped from the wild, however brave
Hungry wolves roam round hungry graves

Yin moon shade the night
A luminous rite
Yang sun heal the day
Wed the hunter to the prey
Hunger the crave
Summon the wild
