Who will protect you
From these dog like vultures? (VULTURES)
And I know they're small,
Their teeth are sharp.

We've been sent with eyes to see them
And ears to hear their steps.
Our hearts are softer than the sheep.

We've been known to calm the storm
And silence the ocean
With strength to spare you from their teeth.
(FROM THEIR TEETH)

Our eyes are upon you
And we'll protect you, be assured
No fang will breech your fleece
Because we are called to lead
And sent to gather.
So, bare your teeth
And sharpen your claws.

We've been sent with
Eyes to see them
And ears to hear their steps.
Our hearts that are softer than the sheep.

We've been known to calm the storm
And silence the ocean.
With strength to spare you from their teeth.
From their teeth.

Their blood will spill like water
In a fountain for thieves
And liars.
So bare your teeth
And sharpen your claws.
Because we hold the keys

And we've been sent with
Eyes to see them
And ears to hear their steps
Our hearts that are softer than the sheep.

We've been known to calm the storm
And silence the ocean.
With strength to spare you from their teeth.
From their teeth.

    I think it talks about how we are called to be shepherds to others and models the original (jesus). If we trust and follow his lead, we too can lead others to him and away from sin.

    To me this song is about our guardian angels. They "were sent with eyes to see them and ears to hear their steps" and there referring to "them" as wolves or as sins and they are here and watching to steer us clear from sin.

    This resume in this words: our hearts that are softer than the sheep.
    Be careful so bare your teeth and sharpen your claws. Because we hold the keys...
