Who are they
Are they a threat to our beliefs
So we descend upon them
Just like vengeful wolves

Bitter daylight
Hangs above us with the rain
What is this that tells you
I am right or wrong

I'm not saying...

    My InterpretationI believe this song is not about people in particular, but is about certain situations such as difficult times, where we're questioning serious things or are in uncertainty, as a betrayal of someone special, or when a problem came out of nowhere, when we least expect it.
    "So we descend upon them just oike vengeful wolves." - Is to act by instinct. To "fight" against these situations we often become aggressive, and take destructive measures to keep us carrying on.
    In the last verses, I think it's a reference to regret and/or the constant insecurity of living through it. What ensures that the decisions made were right or wrong? What ensures that, from now on, everything will be better?
    ''I'm not saying." - Honestly... I see it as a self-defense mechanism; something to soften those feelings, like "I'm not saying everything is already lost."

    General CommentI think the first bit goes:

    who are they
    are they a threat to our beliefs
    so we descend upon them
    just like vengeful wolves

    this song makes me orgasm

    General CommentHoly shit. Wolves. This song is brilliant. Dissociative music wins.

    General CommentWhen I listen to it I hear "Who are they, to threaten our beliefs" I can see how it could go the other way too.

    My InterpretationTo me this is a song written from the standpoint of narrow minded people, bigots if you like, who do not want their beliefs challenged. They attack anyone who might challenge what they hold to be true. Not sure what the last line alludes to, perhaps the irrational reasoning people give to their terrible actions

    General CommentStrange. I always through the lyrics went

    Who are they?
    Adding a thread to our beliefs...

    It's probably impossible to distinguish between the two with any certainty... great song, too...
