​The Wilderness

This song is by Ola Salo and appears on the album Wilderness (2015).

The wilderness is closing in
Beneath our fences, 'neath our skin
The wilderness is closing in
Its tentacles are reaching in
It's sweeping like an ancient wind
With horny moans it softly sings
And pollinating mutant kin
Its grasp around is tightening tonight

And there were five of us this morn'
I don't know if we'll last till dawn
How could it ever go so wrong?

It's been coming
It's been coming for so long
While the wilderness was coming on strong
It's been coming
It's been coming for so long
And we all know we've been sitting
On a time bomb
But there's no time to go on
About who's been right and who's been wrong
Just collect your valuables
And meet me on the highest prong

The wilderness is closing in
Beneath our fences, 'neath our skin
It's drilling underneath our feet
It's growing faster as we speak
And some of us inside our fort
Are plagued with scabs and crouched by gout
Their backbones twirl with scoliosis
Assuming wild and wretched poses tonight

The wilderness is everywhere
We're wrinkled and we lose out hair
It's already inside, I fear

It's been coming
It's been coming for so long
While the wilderness was coming on strong
It's been coming
It's been coming for so long
And we all know we've been sitting
On a time bomb
But there's no time to go on
About who's been right and who's been wrong
Just collect your valuables
And meet me on the highest prong
