lyrics

Wars were fought & lands were sought
Flags & bras were burned
fortunes fell & tricks were turned
We sent our men to the moon
And our women got to choose

But the wolves still howl at unholy desire
Hustling the words of the saints & the friars
and yet no one mourns the souls on the pyre
of the boys who cried love

The words of the poets who died paupers washed up on the shore
Even anonymous hate found a nice little place to grow
Closets ache with men dressed in shame
Waiting in the wings
Cuz the only save is a shot at fame

But the wolves still howl at unholy desire
Hustling the words of the saints & the friars
and yet no one mourns the souls on the pyre
of the boys who cried love
