lyrics

Wolf’s rite, mutilate and carve out this sheep from the inside
Wolf obliged, shredded rags your character to nurture in surgery
Blood tight, new skin sewn with foreign born confidence
Bulging, constrict more than adequate to asphyxiate

Spread thin, suture count can’t contain eagerly eaten remnants
Head down, snag your way through the sprint, stumble and emaciate
Your lungs, hollow in your haste, your limbs, gone now with your arms
Dilate, eyes desperate acknowledge wolf you suffocate

Peel off, remove, frantic, burn the suit, terror, realize, stuck inside
No arms, no limbs, accept, the sprint, this wolf, a sheep, teeth compete

Peel off, remove, frantic, burn the suit, terror, realize, limbless, sewn inside
No arms (broken), no limbs (severed), accept (sewn in), the sprint (new skin)
This wolf (obliged), a sheep (your life), existential, dichotomy
