Many times in life we find ourselves running from something. We run from those who have wronged us, from tragedy, from responsibility, or simply the past. Sometimes though, we are chased by something unknown. We run and run, always trying to stay ahead of it, but it keeps nipping at our heels. Not all that follows us can be outrun. Sometimes we have to turn and face that thing to find peace and grow stronger.
Sometimes we realize that we were running from ourselves all along.
Lyrics Waiting for the wolves To make a meal out of me You know I've seen stranger things Happen round here But nothings more unusual Than seeing yourself Become the very thing That rang the dinner bell Looks like the feast is upon me Or so it always was I guess I should be grateful For it takes a hunger To see what you're really worth Now I'm skin and bones Took every piece of me Strange how the weight is gone All that's left is me Stripped down to the very soul I gave myself for free I've become the very thing That's been chasing me Looks like the beast is upon me Or so it always was I guess I should be grateful For in the den of wolves You see what you're really worth
