Written By Wolves - Pretty Lies Lyrics

I've been starting to accept that
Maybe this is all there is and
Dreams that I've held in my head should be forgotten
Just forget that you thought you were bound for greatness
Rock and roll could be a savior
Keep that to yourself
And just fit in

Don't stand out or they'll destroy you
Words are sharp and filled with poison
Every step that you take forward
They'll pull you back a thousand more
So give up your imagination
Take the pill, it's just sedation
Be a member of society

That's not worth living for
I won't be afraid anymore

Like a thief in the night
Armed with their pretty lies
They will haunt you
Consume you
But you can't let them win
Let the fear be your friend
Let it guide you
Fulfill you

Like a thief in the night
Armed with their pretty lies
They will haunt you
Consume you
But you can't let them win
Let the fear be your friend
Let it guide you
Fulfill you

You close your eyes and dreams start racing
Feels so real that you can taste it
See the crowd and all their faces
Hear them screaming out your name and
Wish this was more than a vision
You could break out of this prison
Taking back control

Feel the fear and let it guide you
Let the fire burn inside you
Think of all that they've denied you
Remember and use the drive
You've always had, but buried deeper
You give up, they get what they want
Don't let them win

Like a thief in the night
Armed with their pretty lies
They will haunt you
Consume you
But you can't let them win
Let the fear be your friend
Let it guide you
Fulfill you

Like a thief in the night
Armed with their pretty lies
They will haunt you
Consume you
But you can't let them win
Let the fear be your friend
Let it guide you
Fulfill you

I'm sick of all their pretty lies (woah, woah)
They sparkle like a blade (woah, woah)
But I will make damn sure
That I will not die wondering
What could have been
I'll take nothing to the grave

That's not worth living for
I won't be afraid anymore

Like a thief in the night
Armed with their pretty lies
They will haunt you
Consume you
But you can't let them win
Let the fear be your friend
Let it guide you
Fulfill you

Like a thief in the night
Armed with their pretty lies
They will haunt you
Consume you
But you can't let them win
Let the fear be your friend
Let it guide you
Fulfill you

    I don't know when WBW first got together but i thank the stars, Sun, and planets for aligning just right that day to bring us this amazing band!

  2. spicy lemon

    His energy is just so contagious

  3. EUnicorn

    Seriously, how has this band not gotten more attention

  4. Will B

    "Like a thief in the night"
    I love that section of the chorus Soooooooo much. But it sounds kinda familiar for some reason, does that section of music appear in some other song? Or is that voice up-and-down thing he does the thing tickling my deja vu?

    If theres a similar song I kinda really want to hear it. (Not accusing plagarism or anything, multiple musicians stumbling on the same sounds or having similar inspiration seems way more likely to me)
