Up the Wolves / The Mountain Goats  YouTube Video
 

NOTES:
1) The YouTube link above is to the songs use in the closing scene of The Walking
    Dead, S4x12, "Still".
2) Lyrics below in red are not included with the songs use in video.
3) If memory serves me correctly, this song isn't about committing violence, but
    rather about the futility of revenge.

―覧覧覧覧覧

There's bound to be a ghost at the back of your closet
No matter where you live
There'll all ways be a few things, maybe several things
That you're gonna find really difficult to fo
rgive


There's gonna come a day when you'll 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 gonna be a party when the wolf comes home


We're gonna commandeer the local airwaves
To tell the neighbors 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 gonna get myself in fighting trim
Scope out every angle of unfair advantage
I'm gonna bribe the officials, I'm gonna kill all the judges
It's gonna take you people years to recover from all of the damage

Our mother has been absent
Ever since we founded Rome
But there's gonna be a party when the wolf comes home , oh


[End]
