When the Lambs Became the Wolves

When I was a little lamb, I played in the meadows
with fellow lambs just like a lamb should.
Our hearts, they were light and our moods, they were mellow
lest we heard howls, the howls from the woods!
 
Late one night as we offed the light
and we laid our heads to sleep,
in from the night came a harrowing sight
and it had an appetite for sheep.
Well, the lambs, they were terrified
but there in their widened eyes
suddenly I saw a change
and they’ve never ever been the same.
They bit his face, they ate his heart.
They tore that wolf apart
and the blood, oh the blood, oh the blood,
oh, the blood, it flowed!
 
Now, I’m lying in my pen
and I try to get some sleep
but I’m thinking of the lambs
and their bloody awful teeth.
They’re not acting as they should
and now have claws instead of hooves
and I wonder if it’s safe to sleep.
‘Cause the lambs, the lambs became the wolves.
Yeah, the lambs, the lambs became the wolves.
 
In these days, through a gloomy haze
we launch another ardent sweep.
We say we’re hunting wolves
but they’re mostly wearing wool
‘cause some of them are fellow sheep.
See, the risk of combating monsters
is the risk of becoming monsters
In this game of us or them
will we ever be the same again?
But, what really breaks my heart
is when we tear ourselves apart
‘cause the blood that we love
is the blood flowing from our own.
 
Now, I’m lying in my pen
and I try to get some sleep
but I’m thinking of the lambs
and their bloody awful teeth.
They’re not acting as they should
and now have claws instead of hooves
and I wonder if it’s safe to sleep.
‘Cause the lambs, the lambs became the wolves.
Yeah, the lambs, the lambs became the wolves.
 
Now, I’m lying in my pen
and I try to get some sleep
but I’m thinking of the lambs
and their bloody awful teeth.
They’re not acting as they should
and now have claws instead of hooves
and I wonder if it’s safe to sleep.
‘Cause the lambs, the lambs became the wolves
‘Cause the lambs, the lambs became the wolves
When the lambs, the lambs became the wolves
When the lambs, the lambs became the wolves!
