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
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but all his politics are out of date and wrong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

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
