The dogs, they howl.

A warning sign to the believers.

The planets shift, changing everything.

Natural disasters, the elders fortold.

Have you seen enough yet?


The dogs, they howl.All in due time,

we'll regret even trying.

Didn't the anti-christ tell you?

Salvation is too far to grasp.

Chose a side.

As the river leads,

the sky bleeds,

raining death upon the remainder.


The dogs, they howl.

At nothing, sometimes, it seems.

Locked in the church.

Demons raging hatred outside your doorway.

Ancient myths prove to be right.

Where's your scholar now?

The unknown is what we fear the most.

If only we'd believed them.


The dogs, they howl.

Maybe next time you should open your ears.

Exposing your mind, won't get you far. 

No one will listen...
