wolves at the door lyrics – senses fail

last night i found heaven
it was on the tip of my tongue
and it reminded me of
all the times i was young

of catching rain in my open mouth
i used to smile ’til the day i found out
i have no idea who the h*ll i’ve become
it’s not who i was, it’s not who i loved

i wanna drown, in a sea filled with novocaine
i wanna burn, on a beach where the sand
has thousands of needles poking at my skin

i lie in bed to the sound
of the wolves at my door
they are speaking in tongues
holding court on my floor

i never thought it would come to this
i’m more yellow than my own p*ss
they’re making rounds just to even the score
“just open the door.” “just open the door.”

i wanna drown, in a sea filled with novocaine
i wanna burn, on a beach where the sand
is littered with razor blades
littered with razor blades
blades, littered with razor blades

i can’t hold on, the path is clear
i can’t ignore what’s been building for years
there’s wolves at the door, i won’t hide here in fear
wolves at the door

i look at myself and the things that i’ve done
step away from the mirror and into the sun
i forgive myself for all of my mistakes
when will i learn? when will i, when will i burn?

i wanna drown, in a sea filled with novocaine
i wanna burn, on a beach where the sand
is littered with razor blades

i gave up on myself a long time ago
the black clouds they swallowed and spit me out whole
“sometimes i feel like i’m losing my soul,
at least that means i still have a soul left to lose.”
