  • Lyrics: Cul-de-sac Apocalypse The wild wolves are running through the night. You arm yourself for a lonely fight. Their bellies empty and the moon is full, And you cannot resist the pull Of this cul-de-sac apocalypse, The words are spinning off your lips. The world is turning and you want to play it cool, And even though you try, You can’t resist the pull. You are the fainting goat, Folding before her lips touch your throat, And you don’t want to play the fool. But you cannot resist the pull Of this cul-de-sac apocalypse, You’re starting to get a tiny glimpse Of a light in the darkness, of a truth un-cruel, And even though you fight, You can’t resist the pull. You want to be the hunter and you hope you’re not the prey. You have not lived any other way. You stare at you fists, in the past they were your tools, But now you cannot resist the pull Of this cul-de-sac apocalypse, Your fists relax around her hips. She doesn’t want to play the virgin. She does not want to play the whore. Why did you dress your love in the colors of war? There’s Christ with the cross and the electric chair, The calloused lonely echo life’s not fair. Compassion gets lost in their rules, But you cannot resist the pull Of this cul-de-sac apocalypse, Your arms are wrapped around her hips, And you’re not fighting No, you’re playing loves fool, And you don’t even try to resist the pull.
