In the houses of the holy
To the middle of the mystic sea
At the cradle of the world
Ooh ooh yea

There's a black cat screamin'
And it's not even midnight, no
At the cradle of the world

They're screaming, "Sanctuary"
They're screaming at you
Lock up the wolves, ooh
Lock up the wolves
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Now there's a cloud over Heaven
And a pain out of Paradise
In your corner of the world

Turn your back on the children
Does it feel like it's colder
In your corner of the world

They're screaming, "Sanctuary"
They're screaming at you
Lock up the wolves
Lock up the wolves, ohh
Lock up the wolves
Lock up the wolves

Don't you let 'em get away
Lock up the wolves
Before you play or it's over
Lock up the wolves
Now don't you let 'em get away
Don't let 'em get away

There's no back door to Heaven
Just a front door to Hell, oh
In this corner of the world

Now if you turn your back on the children
Well you feel it getting colder, aah
In your corner of the world

They're screaming, "Sanctuary"
They're screaming at you, aaa aao
Lock up the wolves, yea
Lock up the wolves
Lock 'em up
