Formidable Foes

lyrics

i’ll grind your bones to make my bread
i’ll tear your throat out
i’ll tear your throat out
i’ll grind your bones to make my bread
i’ll tear your throat out
i’ll tear your throat out
‘cause i’ve got to feed
you know i’ve got to feed, hey
i’ll save your skull to sip my wine
no, there is no finer thing
than savouring your suffering
i’ve got to feed
you know i’ve got to feed
you know i’ve got to feed
you know i’ve got to feed
won’t you come a little closer now
i need a bit of sustenance
won’t you come a little closer now
and show a bit of reverence
won’t you come a little closer now
i need a bit of sustenance
won’t you come a little closer now
i need a bit of sustenance
and an eye for an eye
seems a little too kind
no, your blood is the due that is owed me
and you can try as you might
you can’t cast me aside
not as long as there’s breath in your body
and there are things at play, child
forces of nature, and so it goes
sharp of wit and claw and fang
you know it’s how we roll
red-lipped formidable foes
(would you take us on?)
red-lipped formidable foes
(would you take us on?)
the most formidable foes
(would you take us on?)
the most formidable foes
(would you take us on?)
and we’ve got to feed you
know we’ve got to feed
you know we’ve got to feed
you know we’ve got to feed
i’ll grind your bones to make my bread
i’ll tear your throat out
i’ll tear your throat out
i’ll grind your bones to make my bread
i’ll tear your throat out
i’ll tear your throat out
i’ll tear your throat out
i’ll tear your throat out
i’ll tear your throat out
i’ll tear your throat out
i’ll tear your throat out
i’ll tear your throat out
i’ll tear your throat out
i’ll tear your throat out
