[Verse 1]
In a safe house he baits
Can you blame the conniving
Bludgeoned by the prowler cars
He's been running since the day
That they tagged his skin
A walking cipher kicking calendars

[Chorus]
He hears the sirens
He hears his song play everyday

[Verse 2]
From Potemkin mills
Where the winds erase
They use our past to evict us
In a land that stole
A kestrel from the knave
Smothered inmates full at capacity

[Chorus]
He hears the sirens
He hears his song play everyday
It's open season check the body cam

[Bridge]
There's no wolf like the present
They own your history
Scrap it for parts
There's no wolf like the present
Of insignificance

Tantivy run

He's been on the lam so long
He knows the rules of the hunt
Carving X's into bullets for luck
While the veneer of civilization grinds
Light bulbs into his food supply

[Chorus]
He hears the sirens
He hears his song play everyday
It's open season check the body cams

[Bridge]
There's no wolf like the present
They own your history
Scrap it for parts
There's no wolf like the present
Of insignificance

Tantivy run
