First of all you will eat all the bodies
No matter they pray for freedom they'll kill you
Forward you crush those going backward
The wolves are now your lords
Voracious flames upon the earth

Second step you eat all the creation
Swallow the trees the lakes and all the valleys
Crush the moon, and drink the rivers flowing
Deep rolling ocean blow
Burning all that lives

They teach you how to conquer and rule the world
The towers that you built so strong, no man can touch
They tell you how to find and raise the fears
And let them grow inside of your heart they need no walls

Is there a chance you face the void inside?
Winds of doom will blow your pride away

Behold the bright lights coming down on time
Before these altars black, made from your sacrifice
You take for granted what's been there for ages
Inside the womb the new blood gets ready to fight

The buildings of our fathers
Crumbling in dark vibrations
Wolf down the one that made us all
No hope, you wolf down the earth

    I agree with the comments below but would like to extend to the idea that this is (at least to some degree) related to food and agriculture (particularly animal agriculture).
    The title is 'wolf down the earth', which can be read as 'devour the earth'. 'devour' could be used to describe a few things, but 'wolf down' is a synonym for 'devour' only used when describing voracious eating. I think this song is about, primarily, how the human race's eating habits and agricultural systems (controlled by the 'wolves'; the ruling elite who care only for profit) are destroying the earth.
