Fight Songs

  2. Howl

    Devils goal song

    Hey wake it up! Hey shake it out!
    Does anything still move you since you’re educated now?
    And all grown up and travelled so well
    Do you still hear the sound of the thunder while you lie up by yourself?Like you waited on his call and made your plans for great escapes
    And there used to be a movement in the way your dress would wave
    From your hips on down like electric through the ground

    Now do you blow it out come Friday night?
    See if you wanna, you can find me on the hood under the moonlight
    Radio, oh radio, do you believe there’s still some magic left
    Somewhere inside our souls?

    Like I waited on your call and made my plans to share my name
    And I love the country movement in the way your dress would wave
    From your hips on down like electric through the

    Sound of the cars rushing the rain on the boulevard
    In this city by the sea that has always haunted me
    And belonged to me somehow
    Bless your waters and your doubts
    Bless your waters
    Bless your doubts
