Wolves of Power
cold grey Truxtun warship visit/forces of destruction in our lives
part of a senseless arms race/one mistake no one survives
paper welcomes sailors to our nightspots/with lure - girls get in free
those who care just don't get a look in/is this the way that it should be?

too much control by Wolves of Power/they make the lamb fat then they devour

doubters calling for protection/possessing little peace in hand
power matters more than people to the rulers of our land

too much control by Wolves of Power/they make the lamb fat then they devour

you if you've got no time to think
you if you've got to make a buck
you as you have another drink
you if you don't give a f***

too much control by Wolves of Power/they make the lamb fat then they devour

too much control by Wolves of Power/they make the lamb fat then they devour
too much control by Wolves of Power/they make the lamb fat then they devour
(repeat and fade)
