The Howling Lyrics

We’ve been seeing what you want,
You’ve got us cornered right now
Falling asleep from our vanity
May cost us our lives

I hear them getting closer
Their howls are sending chills down my spine
Time is running out now,
They’re coming down...

    I think that this song demonstrates the bad things in our world, such as/especially war, killing, and fighting. I also think that this song demonstrates that if we don't stop all these malevolent acts we have led ourselves to do that we will fall and destroy ourselves with it.... That's the best interpretation that I got from that great song....

    I feel like the song is more about activism. The song itself is like an anthem in my opinion.

    I feel that when itsays fallen asleep from our vanity may cost us our lives, it means that weare so enticed with the beauty of things that we forget our dqngers, and then the dangers get us. It also may be symbolism of treachery. Or it could be rising up. The wolves of society are usually the big, rich people, plus the viel thing. Seeing what you want, youve got us cornered. The have control. And then:"when we start killing, its all coming down right now" could be the fall of the government through violence. And "from this nighmare weve created, I want to awakened" could be the person trying to pierce the viel. And it just carries on through the song through the verses, and the chorus is the fighters

    I always think of Supernatural when someone makes a deal with a crossroad demon. It also makes me think of werewolves, maybe their at war with each other.
