Gonna Fail As A Lone Wolf (The Artist Looks Up From The Herd)

from by The Peach Tree

/

about

Coupled with "Gonna Try With A Little Help From My Friends", this track sets up the notion of failing as an Artist, by doing it as "A Lone Wolf" and setting oneself apart from "The Herd". The lyrics, however, mention "Drifting along like the rest of the sheep", admitting that it's actually kind of cosy in the herd. There is also a tension in the title invoked by mentioning wolves and sheep together.

lyrics

how did it begin?
and how does it sustain?
why does it manifest inside our brain?

why does it exist?
and how does it portray
those in a state words can't convey

and it cuts to the bone when i see you weep
i sink like a stone in a dying sleep
i'd pick up the phone if i wasn't so weak
but i drift along like the rest of the sheep

i sing along like the rest of the sheep
i get it wrong like the rest of the sheep
i'd pick up the phone if i wasn't so weak
but i drift along like the rest of the sheep

and it cuts to the bone when you weep and weep
i would pick up the phone but i'm way too weak
and i sink like a stone in a dying sleep

how do i explain?
and why do i refrain?
see how i melt in acid rain
