Music and lyrics written by Charlie Wolf (BMI) and Christian Kalafut (ASCAP).
Recorded in Oakland, LA, and New York.


i tried to break free from chains you wrapped around my neck. your crown fell, it shook me but i’m still trying to forget your painted eyes with blackbirds hanging from a wire while i am fading from your light. we’re roaring lions trying to break away from thee. we were floating aimless trying to part our own red sea. i’m a fallen angel trying to bring you down to me. we are roaring lions just trying to do the right thing.

you tried to break me but i had walls you couldn’t see… i ran free, you ran far, away from all your armories. your weapons: you built them from parts of me and parts of you. now that the war’s run, there’s nothing else for us to do but sit and wonder why these swords are in our souls or we were always born to be roaring lions.
