Lyrics:

The wild boys are calling
On their way back from the fire
In august moon's sur­render to
A dust cloud on the rise

Wild boys fallen far from glory
Reckless and so hungered
On the razors edge you trail
Because there's murder by the roadside
In a sore afraid new world
They tried to break us
Looks like they'll try again

Wild boys nev­er lose it
Wild boys nev­er chose this way
Wild boys nev­er close your eyes
Wild boys always shine

You got sirens for a welcome
There's blood­stain for your pain
And your tele­phone been ringing
While you're dan­cing in the rain

Wild boys won­der where is glory
Where is all you angels
Now the fig­ure­heads have fell
And lov­ers war with arrows
Over secrets they could tell
They tried to tame you
Looks like they'll try again

Wild boys nev­er lose it
Wild boys nev­er chose this way
Wild boys nev­er close your eyes
Wild boys always shine
