Now and then...Was all a Shroud of Lies

I hesitated to express myself to you
For reasons I cannot explain...
I reminisce of those days when we were happy,
When the wolf inside me was at peace...



Now, we've drifted apart, like the wolf and moon
being distant from one another...
Then, we were happy, close to one another
like Sugar and Cyanide, nothing could tear us apart. [x2]



Even when I said we'd never be broken apart,
I realize now that all of it was just a shroud of lies.
If you truly loved me, you'd understand why I do the things I do.



Now, you say you've had enough of me, and I stand alone,
Facing the world on my own, without you.


Then, you never had enough of me, and we were inseparable,
like the wolf and the moon.
We have a burning hatred for one another in our eyes.
And it brings me joy to say that I don't care about you anymore.



Time was never on our side,
you blamed me for all your pain,
When the reality was that we both inflicted pain
Onto each other on a daily basis.
Even when I said we'd never be broken apart,


I realize now that all of it was just a shroud of lies
If you truly loved me, you'd understand why I do the things I do. [x2]



It's never too late for this wolf to find a new mate,
even when I said it'll be alright back then,
I realized that we were never meant to be,
But I still tried commit myself to you...



I tried devoting myself to you,
but all it did was make the wolf inside me
break free and want to slaughter everything...



Maybe now the wolf within can be free of this torment,
and release it's true potential,
without anyone stopping it.
The wolf within me, is what makes me who I am.

The wolf within me, is what makes me fight.
The wolf within me, is what makes me stronger in the end.
But do these really matter to you, now that you're a dying memory?



You put the wolf within me and myself through emotional torment,
and now it's time I returned the favor by moving on,
Letting you feel what you put us through.



Over and over again, you said you loved me,
and I hesitantly repeated those words back to you.
Why did I do that over and over for so long?

Did I truly care,
or was it unrequited love? [x2]


You put the wolf within me and myself through emotional torment,
and now it's time I returned the favor by moving on,
Letting you feel what you put us through.
