Primordial — Lain with the Wolf lyrics

The page contains the lyrics of the song "Lain with the Wolf" by Primordial.


I have lain with the lamb
Sang his tender praise on long dark nights
Searched my drawn face long and hard
For a sign of his light
Shoulders to the wheel for the grist of faith
Is manna for the blind
Like a child of Cain without the providence of truth
Joy did come, it rose with the morning sun
Like cold guilty sweat across my brow
These are the first words that fell upon my lips
I have lain with the wolf
He seeks me out and demands my company
In the corner of a crowded room
With words of madness and water of fire
He whispers, when the demons come
Do you make peace with them
Or do you become one of them? Do you?
If I give name to my furies, can you name them?
He preaches salvation in the loins of women
And the black sciences
When the shadow fell upon me I knew I was running with the wolf
And it was his eyes I saw staring back
And this I learnt and this I know
You cannot escape the beast when you wear his mark
