So young, so brazen, so unholy
I come to you in painted skies
Your broken saint, your ancient story
The living challenge to your lies

Trapped in the cold outside
There ain't no shelter
They wanna force my hand
Until I...

Take what I wanted, and
Break all the lies and
Defeat the fuckin' liars...
Smash all the temples, and
Crawl through the rubble, and
Cry to the fallen

I'm the last of my kind still standing
I'm the last of my kind still standing on the wall

A wolf alone upon the hillside
I live on what they throw away
I go to sleep behind the eight ball
I live to fight for one more day

Trapped in the cold outside
There ain't no shelter
They wanna force my hand
Until I...

Take what I wanted, and
Break all the lies and
Defeat the fuckin' liars...
Smash all the temples, and
Crawl through the rubble, and
Cry to the fallen

I'm the last of my kind still standing...
I'm the last of my kind still standing on the wall

I'm the last of my kind still standing...
I'm the last of my kind still standing...

    Love this song. Jerry Cantrell is a phenomenal song writer, lyrics so deep and meaningful. The music industry is a very cut throat business and no one really cares about the individuals, it's all about money. This song reveals the struggles Jerry and aic have gone through and talks about how through it all, they are still here, they are still relevant and that they don't make 'em like they used to.
