everything i've told you was true
so imagine my surprise when i blink my eyes
and realize that i've been talking to you
and i've told you everything
even the parts i'd meant to leave out
and i shake my hair, and i look about

and the wild dogs are hungry
and the wild dogs howl
and the wild dogs in the mountains to the north of us
come down

    General CommentThis song reminds me of my own recent situation, and I think it probably is the meaning to this song.
    It sounds like he's finally told his girlfriend or wife or whatever how he really feels, and it isn't good news for the relationship. He maybe went into it just wanting to say a few things, but ended up saying enough things to doom the relationship. The end is near (the wolves are coming down).
