"We Dream Like Lions" as written by Ulrich Wild, Ulrich Wild, Otep Shamaya and Otep Shamaya....
We dream like lions
Warm in the frost
Fresh from the kill
Tiny teeth and claws
We dream like lions

Deep beneath the loam
The windows of his soul
Ash on the watery glass
Broken but still whole

A halo of barbwire
A frozen night of fire
Oh, so cold

We dream like lions
Below and above
The woolly little lambs
That look a lot like us
We dream like lions

The dark poles of the weeping trees
Cradle him close in the heavy breeze,
Crumbs for the crows slow empire of worms we sing the
Cry of countless broken souls
"the world is made of razor blade, they choke on the words they'll never say,
I wish it could change but it will always be this way"

We dream like lions
Warm in the frost
Fresh from the kill
Tiny teeth and claws
We dream like lions

We dream like lions
Below and above
The woolly little lambs
That look a lot like us
We dream like lions

    Song MeaningI heard this song on a station called 95X, Otep did a live show and played this song. They said this song was about suicide, and the first vers was after some dude who committed suicide. But music is up for people to find there own meaning, to me I see lions as mutilating creatures who tear apart there pray but they keep dreaming...I just get the sense of a person who keeps hurting them self but dreams of something else, like the lamb sweet and innocent, when they know there not so innocent as they where, 'halo of barbed wire'....dunno lol.
