The Hunt

by Metaphorest

/

lyrics

Run, little rabbit, run
And don’t look back
The hounds have found your
Little rabbit track

The bloodthirsty enemy
Has been well trained
But, you are wild
You cannot be contained

Hunt or be hunted
Lead or be led
You have two choices
Live or be dead

You ate the bitter flowers
And soon you knew
The ones with the power
Would come looking for you

The puppets of war
The henchmen lurch
Trained to serve and
Bound to search

Hunt or be hunted
Lead or be led
You have two choices
Live or be dead

The winter is coming
The ageing sun
Is tired, as are you
Little one

But soon your trial here will be done
And you will have no distance left to run
