House Of Wolves

Information

Meaning

The album concept follows the Patient looking back on his life. In this track the lyrics apparently follow the Patients realization that he may go to hell because of the sins he has committed.

“Well I think I’m gonna burn in hell
Everbody burn the house right down”

Everything we always wanted to do in the band is coming through now. ‘House Of Wolves’ was a big deal for Mikey because it’s a blues song, which he’s always wanted to do. He had a big part in that song. On this album we all got the chance to play the songs of our dreams.

Lyrics

I know a thing about contrition
Because I got enough to spare
And I’ll be granting your permission
‘Cause you haven’t got a prayer

Well I said hey hey hallelujah
I’ma come on sing the praise
So let the spirit come on through ya
We got innocence for days

Well I think I’m gonna burn in hell
Everbody burn the house right down

And say
What I wanna say
Tell me I’m an angel
Take this to my grave
Tell me I’m bad man
Kick me like a stray
Tell me I’m an angel
Take this to my grave

You play ring around the ambulance
Well like you never had a care
So get the choirboys are you
It’s a compliment I swear

I said ashes to ashes we all fall down
I wanna hear you sing the praise
And I said ashes to ashes we all fall down
We got innocence for days

Well I think I’m gonna burn in hell
Everbody burn the house right down

And say
What I wanna say
Tell me I’m an angel
Take this to my grave
Tell me I’m bad man
Kick me like a stray
Tell me I’m an angel
Take this to my grave

You better run like the devil ’cause they’re never gonna leave you alone
You better hide up in the alley ’cause they’re never gonna find you a home
And as the blood runs down the walls
You see me creepin’ up these halls
I been a bad motherfucker
Tell yer sister I’m another

And say
What I wanna say
Tell me I’m an angel
Take this to my grave
Tell me I’m bad man
Kick me like a stray
Tell me I’m an angel
Take this to my grave

Tell me I’m a
Bad
Bad
Bad
Bad
Man
