Lyrics
The wolf is at the door
Please don’t let him in
The wolf is at the door
Please don’t let him in
He’s standing there smiling with a big ‘ol politician’s grin

says, “I’ll take care of you
trust me, I don’t lie.”
says, “I’ll take care of you
trust me, I don’t lie.”
But we’re all pigs for the slaughter if you let that boogey man inside.

I’m rolling down the road trying to hold onto my soul
I’m rolling down the road trying to hold onto my soul
but the future’s uneven and the past it feels mighty old.

I’d join the revolution if I could just get out of bed
I’d join the revolution if I could just get out of bed
why don’t you call me on my cell phone
let me know when it’s over instead.

There’s thunder in your message
But I don’t feel no rain
There’s thunder in your message
But I don’t feel no rain
Give us zombies water then send us back home again.

I’m rolling down the road trying to hold onto my soul
I’m rolling down the road trying to hold onto my soul
but the future’s uneven and the past it feels mighty old.
