From the moment I was taught to resist the education, awoo
To hold it hostage until I know he loves me, awoo
With a shrug and an ugh, I unleash my holy power, awoo
The feeling of the end of my last examination, awoo

awoo. awoo.. a ye a ya.
awoo. awoo.. a ye a ya.

How sweet is the curd of my own written qualities, awoo
I’d rather wallow win the mud of my own imagination, awoo
If I am naked on the throne, I’ll be working in bone yard, awoo
Haunts the blood like a bad reputation, awoo

awoo. awoo.. a ye a ya.
awoo. awoo.. a ye a ya.

I've got 25 bucks can you save my reputation? awoo
Acting like nothing ever happened to me ever, awoo.
But if I covet and conform to my own rich qualities, awoo.
I'll be working for my own, now at least I'll know he loves me not, awoo.

awoo. awoo.. a ye a ya.
awoo. awoo.. a ye a ya.

    General CommentThe song seems to describe that MOMENT when the judgment of others -- those who have rejected or used us -- is no longer the measure of our own judgment of ourselves. The 'wolves' (the chorus who sing 'awoo') mock gently the singer, accompanying him in the graveyard we could say, reminding him of his witch qualities, but concurrently disapproving of any notion that his reputation could be (or should be) saved (or bought). This is the work required of one who rejects a sexual morality based on the promise of marriage proposals and the like ('holding it [sex] hostage'): those who reject that education must forge, perhaps, a (new?) way to get a handle on rejection. Outside of mainstream (sexual) morality, they must work for their own. Fortunately, there are others (the wolves) who through singing along remind us that we have both chosen to 'resist the education' of mainstream sexual morality, even as they perhaps teach again the lesson as to why we should reject that morality.

    General CommentSo amazing. The video for it is awesome too. Everyone except the singer is a wolf-person, and they are all howling "AWOO"
