Mark Lanegan Band – I Am The Wolf (2015)

I AM THE WOLF, without a pack
Banished so long ago
I’ve survived on another skill
And on my shadow on
All I’ve learned is that poison stings
No one remembers the names of martyrs and kings
No one remembers much of anything
It came this way before

I AM THE WOLF, calming the beast
Till I’m great to shag away
The carcass of Leviathan sweeps gently on the waves
I hope this shelter is enough to keep you warm
Upstairs the heaven’s giving birth to winter storm
But I haven’t died since the day I was born
Not much I know it’s true

I AM THE WOLF, out wild and free
Picture on the shelf
I’ll burn this house down to the ashes
Long to myself
All I’ve learned is that poison stings
No one remembers the names of martyrs and kings
No one remembers much of anything
It came this way before
It came this way before
I AM THE WOLF
I AM THE WOLF
I AM THE WOLF
