Desert rat cry me wolf
Shedding skin upon you lips
I pray
For the love of madness
For the hand that takes the grip
And we close our eyes
To forgive and forget
And we close our eyes
To forgive and forget
With bated breath for the kingdom come
With bated breath for the kingdom come

I build myself a brave asylum
And ask all the madmen to play host
And when the colours all fade away
It's time for us to give the ghost
Give up the ghost

And we close our eyes
To dream a while
And we close our eyes
To dream a while
Dream a while
With bated breath for the kingdom come
With bated breath for the kingdom come

And while we're talking in tongeus
Of animal behaviour
With a flick of the wrist you could've broken my heat
And done yourself a favour
And I cry in the heat
For the promised and given

The hand I once would trust
Now for the love of heaven
You won't see me
See me for dust

And we close our eyeas
To love again
And we close our eyes
To love again
Love again
With bated breath for the kingdom come
With bated breath for the kingdom come
With bated breath for the kingdom come
With bated breath for the kingdom come

    I don't think cry me wolf, is correct. As first of all, it makes no sence. My bet is,that it's crimey wolf... Crimey as in crime. Person or persons who appear to be involved in the criminel element.
