about

Safer with the Wolves Sydney, Australia

Sydney five-piece Safer with the Wolves howl to things beautiful and things lost in the city, melancholy harmonies riding over vicious guitars, lullabies with teeth pulled tight by depth of feeling & the driving heartbeat of someone running.
SWTW are excited to announce their first album pre-release “The Slaughter” which they hope will pull you in and remind you…maybe you are Safer with the Wolves

Track Name: Universelessness
we are alive, but not for very long
for our atoms are indifferent once the gravity
of the human soul is gone
but i really don't ever wanna die
even though without nothingness
everything left is just a lie
with no explanation why
so let my flesh be fire
don't bury me in the city
let me be the sky

there's no morning without night
no darkness without light
no kiss without a bite
no peace without a fight
no distinction without our extinction
we are transcendants of natural selection
with arrows of time cast in every direction
till all consciousness becomes universeless
it's like drawing a blank and imagining less

human teeth and human claws
need human bricks for human walls
they're just the dust from moons and suns
which too were one so long before
this human race and human faith
were separated and misplaced
to value life while we're laughing at death
its like drawing a blank and imagining less
Track Name: Hope
There's no time for drawing lines
You've got to know where you stand and be ready to fight
Leave the darkness, come into the light
Open your eyes, open your mind
See the zombies, trying to bite
Don't be afraid, they are empty inside
You and i, we cannot live that lie

The road ahead is hard to make out
So be prepared to lay your path down
It's easy now we've got a way out
Just be prepared to lay your path down

If they put words in your mouth
Spit them back out, go on, spit them back out
They will try to sacrifice your will and your wonder and your sense of what's right
In the name
The name of dollar signs
In the name of everything you despise

The road ahead is hard to make out
So be prepared to lay your path down
It's easy now we've got a way out
Just be prepared to lay your path down
You're not alone
We'll find our way home
You're not alone

Don't forget that when the sun sets
the very next day it gets back up again
Let your hope spread out like a fire
Let your hope spread out like a fire
Let your hope spread out like a fire
Let your hope spread out like a fire
Let your hope spread out like a fire
Track Name: Tired Wizards & Young Magicians
When i am old
When i'm old and grey
Im gunna give all my money away
When im too tired to dream
Ill make dreams come true
For some young magicians
Just like me and just like you

When i fall apart
May the music heal my heart
When my hearing fades
Treasure this guitar i played
Cause that's how i can feel ok
That's how i will be making music in my grave

I was young once just like you
Every seed i planted grew
Nourished on the sole desire
To set the freezing cold on fire
You'll be old some day like me
Wisdom will replace your dreams
No more need for seeds to sow
Just memories to hold onto
'Cause memories are what we make
Before our minds and bodies break
Ill give you all that you can take
To help to give your music shape
Cause i have dollars and you have cents
I have scars where you have innocence
It hurts you just to make the rent
So you can keep those dollars
Dollars don't make sense

Ill put my faith in the young magician
The one who shares this strange religion
Ill put my faith in the young magician
The one to carry this tradition

Put the sounds behind the words &
We could heal the universe
We could heal the universe
Just put the sounds behind the words
Put the sounds behind the words &
We could heal the universe
We could heal the universe
Just put the sounds behind the words
Track Name: Beneath The Seas Of Outer Space
God is dead
This is the end
We're ready to drown
You and me
Will vanish in the sea
Where we're safe and we're sound

You get back all you give
Live with love and love is what you'll live

We are dumb
In this human race that is won
With death as the prize
You and me
We'll dream in sheets we weave
Out of space and time

You get back all you give
Live with love and love is what you'll live
Knowledge speaks
Wisdom listens
Time to make another bad decision

We were fine
Now instead
All optimism is dead
No remorse
No regrets
Let the water rise over our heads
Up above
Is a love
When all our hope is dead
no remorse no regrets
let the water rise over our heads
Track Name: Antfarm
from my mothers womb
out into the war
no more silver spoons
no more open doors
just dog eating dog
trying to survive
may your shortcomings be justified

well into our prime
we skew what's left of time
you can dominate your hive
if you work until the day that you die
but i am not a bee
and you are not my queen
im one with everything

money makes soldiers
soldiers they make war
war creates money
so the greedy can gorge
now there's blood on your hands from putting gas into cars
tell me what you think about this capitalist antfarm of ours
tell me that im crazy then
Track Name: The Wolf & The Moon
I am the wolf &
You are the moon
I'll keep my promises I promise you
I hold a gun
'Cause this is a war
We'll fight it locked behind our bedroom doors

If I'm the one to
take all the blame
I'll pull the bullets out and heal again
If you deceive me
I'll never tell
We'll drown together in this wishing well

We'll get so high
We can't get higher
This is nothing new
Just deja vu

I am the wolf and
You are the moon
Give me your hand and we will make it through
If you leave now
I wish you well
As we burn without you in this living hell

We'll get so high
We can't get higher
This is nothing new
Just deja vu
Track Name: Solipsistixorcism
As I gaze deeper into the unknown
the less we know, in vane
As you gaze deep into your telephone
even less is known, and gained
You are the ones on tv
Whose words are numbers to me
I've found a way
To keep my thoughts at bay
Mould my tired mind like clay

Doctor, Doctor, please
Wont you tell me what it means
Have i been disordered by a world that is diseased

The anaesthetic helps reveal the bone
feeling nothing
The kitchen scissors then remove the lobe
leaving nothing but grey
A happy stupor to await me when i wake
To eat my problems in this tiny human steak
My mind is in space
Yours is in your face
Diagnose the human race

Doctor, Doctor, please
Wont you tell me what it means
Have i been disordered by a world that is diseased
Set my body free
Set my spirit free
Cause i don't really want to be a better human being
Track Name: Jaded
Me & my sisters walked all the way
From New York City to L.A.
When we got there
We turned right back 'round
Already Jaded by what we'd found

I've lost my mind & lost my soul
All I've got left is my rock & roll
I miss my lover, I miss my home
All I've got left is my rock & roll

Left bits and pieces along the way
Playing our music with no exchange
We'd come too far to return
So we lit the past & watched it burn

I've lost my mind & lost my soul
All I've got left is my rock & roll
I've lost my mind & lost my soul
All I've got left is my rock & roll
I miss my lover, I miss my home
All I've got left is my rock & roll
I've lost my mind & lost my soul
All I've got left is my rock & roll
& I know..
..We've got a long way to go

Rock is dead
A dream come true
There is nothing left for you
You've been taken for a ride
Excuse me while I kiss the sky

I've lost my mind & lost my soul
All I've got left is my rock & roll
I've lost my mind & lost my soul
All I've got left is my rock & roll
I miss my lover, I miss my home
All I've got left is my rock & roll
I've lost my mind & lost my soul
All I've got left is my rock & roll
& I know..
..We've got a long way to go
Track Name: Dark Matter
I just wanna be free
But the devils always chasing me
& I cant keep running into all this wind and rain and lightning
So i get ready for the attack
I keep my fingers crossed behind my back
& I lie, lie through my teeth if it gets me out of this

Watching the light scatter
I can't see through all this dark matter

I walk through the desert
The sun is burning at my back
On a mission long forgotten
Until I close my eyes at last
& i wake up in a muddy river
Where you were trying not to drown
But I couldn't save you either
So the both of us went down

We watched the light scatter
I can't see through all this dark matter

ride on, ride on
into the storm
ride on, ride on
man, you sure can carry on
ride on
into the storm
ride on ride on
man you sure can carry on
Track Name: The Slaughter
we did what we could
but the humans are no good
so run into the woods..
…we're safer with the wolves

nothing's what it seems
you have poisoned all our sweetest dreams
so tell me what exactly
do you think that you believe in

we did what we should
cause those men turned into bulls
and the blood upon the knife
is surely justified a sacrifice

man you've come a long way
far out from the caves
which once hid you from the night
now you're hiding in plain sight
slit your prophets wrists
feed him to the scientists
however far wont be enough till all you never were is turned to dust

I cant pretend that this isn't happening
I cant pretend that this isn't happening
I cant pretend that this isn't happening
we did what we could
but the humans are no good
the humans are no good
we're safer with the wolves
Track Name: HuhNaY!
down the rabbit hole and up the water spout
little itsy bitsy's gunna suck your insides out
she's got you playing god, but you'd better think twice
before you deconstruct the spiral of life

Huhnay do you even know I'm alive?
the hand that feeds you is the one that you bite
every day I hope that you'll be outside
I'm caught in your web and there's nowhere to hide

whoooooaaaaaaaaaa... HUHHhNaY!!!!!!
I've got you paralysed
whoooooaaaaaaaaaa... HUHHhNaY!!!!!!
Im gunna eat you alive

sweet tooth like a wolverine's claw
may your sweat drip red from every pour
until the only way out of this twisted place
is liquified sucked through deaths face

set your sweet trap and you wait for the flies
hiding in the shadows with your 13 billion eyes
I thought id seen you from my window at night
all your little babies gunna eat you alive

....Im gunna eat you alive

whoooooaaaaaaaaa... HUHHhNaY!!!!!!
Im gunna eat you alive
whoooooaaaaaaaaaa... HUHHhNaY!!!!!!
once you're liquified
I'll set my traps and make you one of my flys..
HuHNaaay!!!I
I got you paralysed
I'll set my traps and make you one of my flys...
HuHNaaay!!!
I'm gunna eat you alive
I'm gunna eat you alive.
Track Name: Pseudoneurotypical
black sheep, white crow
all the things you'll never know
sad truth - flocks rule
watch out 'cause they're coming for you
you can say it's not your fault
but you can't say that you weren't warned
you are thunder, but we are the storm
we are the storm

stick your needles, knit that wool
make this sickness beautiful
pseaudoneurotypical
yes sir, yes sir, three bags full of shame
to pull the wool over your eyes again
so you can carry on
like bees in a swarm
but when your sting has stung
we are the storm

the shepherds will is strong
but all his politics are out of date and wrong
there is no equilibrium
it don't exist
the pecking order doesn't twist
we don't exist
of wool and of leather
forever wasps inside of jars
reaching out to touch the stars
but we know not what we are

it's past the point of writing letters
we'd fly away but you've pulled out our feathers
and i cant see things getting better
in this vendetta
you'll wish that you'd never been born at all
cause there's no safety in the eye of the storm

we know what you want
but you ain't gunna get it
you're all out of luck
and you're all out of credit

black sheep, white crow
aliens without a home
stole your thunder to crown the pawn
we are the storm
Track Name: Computer/Human Singularity
If the future's full of human beings
with bigger better personalities
that take up so much space there's no place left for me to hide
UPLOAD ME INTO THE SKY

there's a bigger brighter future we are owed
where happiness is just a line of code
so when the science comes for me to leave this world behind
UPLOAD ME INTO THE SKY

my body is obsolete
the human form - decaying meat
i'll plug you in and turn you on
so that we may be
forever one
in technology

we could sculpt and mould mortality
with computer/human singularity
to chemically reside inside a universe of my design
UPLOAD ME INTO THE SKY

with no more death or growing old
we'll have bio-algorithmically evolved
put the keys in the cognition to partition the soul
uploaded out of my head into the leading role
now we're in control

lay my empty vessel down to die, then
UPLOAD ME INTO THE SKY
scan my skull and analyse my mind, then
UPLOAD ME INTO THE SKY

my body is obsolete
the human form - decaying meat
i'll plug you in and turn you on
so that we may be
forever one in technology
my body is obsolete
the human form - decaying meat
woooooOoooHooOoo!!
plug me in and turn me on
juice me of my naughts and ones
as of then my life will start
with the algorithmic beating of the heart
