Are there wolves at the door?
Let them turn to grey.
Don't let them open the door.
Don't let them open the door.

I hear them calling, and I don't know why.
I see them falling form the sky.
They've got torpedoes and they're gonna send a few our way.

My heart is pounding, so slow and heavy.
I'm breathing dizzy, as you get ready.
The lighthouse darkens and I'm drawn further from your shore.

The lies they tell tell us make him jealous again.

The lies they tell us make him jealous.
he had a master plan, but his master plan has gone awry.
