lyrics

When Your Wolf Comes Knocking

You were told to beware
What roams in the cold night air?
Something wicked and strong
She will play your song
A beast was seen in the snow
Her prints leave a trail to the bones
She is mother and hunter
Killer and lover

What will you do when your wolf comes knocking?
Can't hide or fool her away
Come back, your pack is calling
Are you wild or have you lost your way?

The timber wolf she knows
That you will follow her into the snow
With an open front door
Swaying like the gallows
Is it lust that you feel?
She knocks you down bloody
And whispers a poem about power
You wish to devour

What will you do when your wolf comes knocking?
Can't hide or fool her away
Come back, your pack is calling
Are you wild or have you lost your way?
You have fallen prey

You settle down in the pines
Raise a daughter with fur down her spine
She is beautiful and wise
With violence in her smile
You kiss her every night
Tell her stories on how to survive
Let her set things on fire
Make her stronger than you are

What will you do when your wolf comes knocking?
Can't hide or fool her away
Come back, your pack is calling
Are you wild or have you lost your way?
