follow the wolf lyrics – king diamond

follow the wolf

the morning slowly came, my life about to end
then the wind would change, all but one had left
the angelic wolf had stayed, without a word she said

follow me, follow the wolf
and so i followed the wolf, up the wooded mountain side
close to the top… she suddenly stopped
sun to the east, man and beast
just two silhouettes… in a landscape never to forget

like dark decaying teeth, i saw the village beneath
a few and distant roads all leading away from here
n*body in the streets… decay
i must follow the wolf again, i must follow her till the end
the end

the wolf had turned around, facing higher ground
and there it was… the house of god
in awe i looked as time had stopped
follow me

i had never seen a church like this before
“this place is terrible” inscribed above the door

like dark decaying teeth, i saw the church within
a few and distant thoughts, inviting me in to sin
n*body in the church… decay

shrouded in a gloomy light, as if my final night
i wonder if god was ever here
or did he turn away in fear, did he turn away in fear?
