Howl

from by Anna Vogelzang

lyrics

there are ghosts in your teeth
ghosts in your sleep
in yr small town
standing in the gazebo

they run in packs
casing houses at night
sayin all the right things
hunting you by the street lights

oh oh oh

there are ghosts up ahead
flagging the car down
behind the tree line
asking forgiveness

you place your bets
I play the fiddle,
light as a feather
the wax in our wings

oh oh oh oh oh

the fear and the failure
the sheep and the shepherd
the rush to encounter
the chase to the slaughter
the hunting, the history
when we hear them howl we know
that we are just as hungry
and we are just as restless

there are ghosts at your back
outrunning the freight train
crowding the dive bars
breathing down danger

they come teeth bared
they cut off yr power
your paper tiger
buried in the back yard

oh oh oh

it comes down through the blood
the stalking of prey
running shoulder to shoulder
keeping up with your brother

your fear of death
is bigger than your body
a phantom limb calling
the holiest grail

my fear to your failure
the sheep and the shepherd
my rush to encounter
your chase to the slaughter
the hunting, the history
when we start to howl, we know
that we are just as hungry
and we are just as restless

there are ghosts in your teeth
ghosts in your sleep
in your small town
