lyrics

They came before the dawn
They snatched us from our beds
They stood us up in ranks
Rain falling on our heads
My pulse sped up its pace
But the enemy I fear
Is the wolf among our fold
And I feel him drawing near

I didn't ask to come to the proving ground
I didn't ask to join the crowd

Sheep are missing clothes
Someone's foaming at the mouth
It won't be long 'til blood is spilt
This whole plan is going south
They make us toe the line
And face us toward the fire
Their howling waxes fierce
As they push us toward the pyre

I didn't ask to come to the proving ground
I didn't ask to join the crowd
I didn't ask to come to the proving ground
I didn't ask to get knocked down

But nobody is safe
When the wolf has his way
And he's the one who invited us to play
And nobody is spared
When the wolf pulls the strings
But it's the only way that we feel anything

I didn't ask to come to the proving ground
I didn't ask to join the crowd
I didn't ask to come to the proving ground
I didn't ask to get knocked down

I didn't ask to come to the proving ground
I didn't ask to join the crowd
I didn't ask to come to the proving ground
But it's the only game in town
