Go on and throw me to the wolves
My sweet angels
Go on and lead them to the woods
And run

You say your not afraid
When the bright sun falls away
But I know you're a liar
You tend to give it away

And I think it's quite likely
I'm a terrible girl inside
And you hate my intuition
As I hate my stupid rhymes

If you need me I'll be around
You can ask me any questions
I'll tell you whatever you think
You need to hear
Any lie or confession

And if you need me I'll be right here
In the seas or in the quarries
I'll have all my papers and books
And calligraphy pens
To tell your brilliant story

And I think it's quite likely
I'm a terrible girl inside
And you hate my intuition
As I hate my wretched pride

So go on and throw me to the wolves
My murderous angels
Just lead me to the naked
And vicious woods
And run

    My OpinionI can't believe nobody has commented on this..?! This is my favorite Ego Likeness song. Beautiful, honest and naked lyrics. Piano and Guitar simple and beautiful. This seems to be a very private and guarded song for her.. for quite some time it was near impossible to have this on myspace or to find it on many of the other streaming music sites. It would be there and then disappear. I think she got tired of taking it down.

    General CommentI see this song as being about relationships. Most specifically that between the band and it's fans. The fans being the Wolves of course. There's a need for the murderous angels, but at the same time, they are murderous and can suck the life from you and tear you to pieces.

    On a personal level, this is my favorite Ego Likeness song. It tears me apart. It makes me look at myself and makes me feel deep secret pain, which is both a beautiful and a horrible thing. There is one very specific line that hits me so hard, "I think it's quite likely, I'm a terrible girl inside". I can only listen to this song at certain times because of that line. Between Donna's voice and what it means to me, I break into tears. You see my father committed suicide a little over two years ago, and my immense anger at him and my in ability to forgive him for leaving myself and his grand kids makes me quite sure I am in fact a terrible girl inside.
