about

We recorded 'Raised By Wolves' in one month in Garth's garage. It was an amazing experience-we were free to tinker with our sounds, unhinged by financial constraints and at our own pace. The seven tracks on this release are a mixture of past and present for us. Some, such as 'Hummingbird' you probably know if you've been to one of our shows but most of it will be completely new. I can say with certainty that this EP reflects a change in direction for our band; this collection is far more energetic and dynamic than the material on 'Left In Places' and I think you'll agree with us that this change is probably for the best.

Track Name: Modern Medicine
I take my pills every day,
set them up, set them up beside me,
I know where my own faults lay,
but you'll point them out

All your drugs can't save us,
All your drugs won't tame us,

I take my pills every day,
line me up, get them all inside me,
I know where my own faults lay,
but you'll find me out

All your drugs can't save us,
All your drugs won't tame us
Track Name: Gorbachev
Gorbachev, declare this war is over,
strip the kaleshnikov from the hands of every soldier,
hear the chord sound and call for the kremlin to fall,
Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall

Gorbachev, us kids know the answer,
give to the comrades the sickle and the hammer,
will they stand by your name or divide what remains?
Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall
Track Name: Memory Boy
My father told me "son, those were the best you'll ever have."
and that scared me half to death
to think my youth had come and gone
just pissed away and passed along

I take some comfort in my skin
hide myself beneath a thinning shell of porcelain
but how the time chips it away

We just grow

God I know I'm young but I've got things to lose
God I know I've grown but there's still time for youth

I take some comfort in my kids
they've got a few years left before they see the world for all it is
I'm gonna raise them wild and set them free


We just grow

God I know I'm young but I've got things to lose
God I know I've grown but there's still time for youth

We just grow
Track Name: Hummingbird
Come alive my buzzing bee, you took the time to say that you're older, oh all grown
you'll fly away my hummingbird, you've got things to see,
on our wings, on our backs, on your own

We all have our ways
when you're not listening
So go on your own
We'll raise a glass and praise your name with
hands behind our backs
We all have our ways
Track Name: Wilderness Eyes
Up in the mountains the light will grow
and surround us til we hardly know
our friends from the animals

Out on the shoreline we beat our drums
and we sing all of our parents songs
but the words don't mean the same no more

Take to the streets with a shriek and a howl
bare our teeth with a grin and a growl
we wear our faults like crowns

We're wild
When we hit the streets
Wild
In the packs we lead

Back in our homes they will cage us in
try to wash all of our painted skin
but their hands cant feed what they don't own

So we run to the woods where we hid the fear
that we've wasted all our golden years
my friends we're losing all we know

We're wild
When we hit the streets
Wild
In the packs we lead
Wild
When we're out to feed
Track Name: Raised by Wolves
I found the clearing where the trees gave way to shore
I felt the awe of Adam when I saw I was bare

So long to you my feral friends, we've had some life
We scratched and clawed on hands and knees but I left you behind

but now

I hear you coming in the night, all tooth and nail for me
You'll take this lad piece by piece, but I won't run

Because I weren't raised by wolves for nothing.
