I told you, Ma, I'll keep you safe
when the sun will expand to consume our house in flames
I thought we'd live forever
A simple obstacle in the way
(let it go, let it go, let it go)
It turns out that we are shit out of luck
There are things in the woods that will prey on the things that you love

And they'll come through the fold
This is the sound of a wild pack of hungry wolves
I won't lie to you
it'll be painful
It's in your nature to fear what is natural
and the sun will explode
(I told you all I'd keep you safe)
but not before you and everyone that you'll ever know
(I told you)
will be gone
(I broke my back just trying to live your way)
long ago
You are alone in this together
You are alone in this together
You are alone
(Here it comes)
(Here it goes)
(this is the sound of our hearts turning into stone)
(we are alone in this together)
(all alone in this together)
(all alone)

I haven't slept in several nights and I'm not tired
Who protects the ones I love when I'm asleep?
Though there's little I can do, I say a prayer
that when the wolves come for their share they'll come for me
