The Mountain Goats – Up The Wolves lyrics
There's bound to be a ghost at the back of your closet
No matter where you live.
There'll always be a few things, maybe several things
That you're going to find really difficult to forgive.

There's going to come a day when you feel better.
You'll rise up free and easy on that day.
And float from branch to branch,
Lighter than the air.
Just when that day is coming, who can say? Who can say?

Our mother has been absent ever since we founded rome.
But there's going to be a party when the wolf comes home.

Were going to commandeer the local airwaves
To tell the neighbours what's been going on.
And they will shake their heads and wag their bony fingers
In all the wrong directions,
And by daybreak we'll be gone.

I'm going to get myself in fighting trim,
Scope out every angle of unfair advantage.
I'm going to bribe the officials.
I'm going to kill all the judges.
It's going to take you people years to recover from all of the damage.

Our mother has been absent ever since we founded rome.
But there's going to be a party when the wolf comes home.
