Track Name: Howl
"What's the point in fighting when the writing's already on the wall?" Paul said to me
Then he said, "What's the point in breathing when you stop believing that you're ever gonna walk tall or be free?"

And I said

Howl from the belly of the beast
Can't you see that war is trying to conquer peace?
It's not a trick, it's not a script, it's not TV
It's your real life, open your eyes, they're trying to keep you in the streets [x2]

"What's the point in praying when things keep staying the way they are now?" Paul said to me
Then he said, "I'm getting tired of weaving past the stones they're heaving in hopes of knocking me down, locking me down, and tossing the key"

And I said

Howl from the belly of the beast
Can't you see that war is trying to conquer peace?
It's not a trick, it's not a script, it's not TV
It's your real life, open your eyes, they're trying to keep you in the streets [x2]

I'd run if I had somewhere to go
This daily hustle's all that I know
A triggerman that's ready to blow
A criminal before I was born
Into this world so petty and torn
Where angels are the ones with the horns
Something here has got to give
All I want to do is live
All I want to do is live
Let the tide roll by
It's time to leave it behind

And I said

Howl from the belly of the beast
Can't you see that war is trying to conquer peace?
It's not a trick, it's not a script, it's not TV
It's your real life, open your eyes, they're trying to keep you in the streets [x2]

Howl from the belly of the beast
Can't you see that war is trying to conquer peace?
It's not a trick, it's not a script, it's not TV
It's your real life, open your eyes

Howl from the belly of the beast
Can't you see that war is trying to conquer peace?
Howl from the belly of the beast
Not gonna let 'em kill us in the streets
