The Fox Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Being wiry and thinking loudly
'Bout the things sent to make you move
You can't help it, there's no one in this world
Knows you just, just the way you do

So we keep darting through the holes
As the hunter and the fox
Run the gauntlet's savage road
We keep darting through the holes
As the hunter and the fox
Run the gauntlet's savage road

Winter's heavy and partly cloudy
And the snowfall leaves, the tracks that catch a few
But if you're wily, you will leave them lying
Snared up in the traps that they set for you

And it's an evergreen affair
As temptation taunts the fox
Into the hunter's, hunter's waiting lair
And it's an evergreen affair
As temptation taunts the fox
Into the hunter's, hunter's waiting lair

And for mile after mile you'll never see me tire
You'll never see me slow down for a while
'Cause I am the fox, like it or not

I'm always gonna be there running over the rock
Yes, I am the fox, a fascinating cross
Of sharp as a whip and tough as an ox
Yes, I am the fox

It may sound crazy but it's often lonely
And the restless heart should be captured once in a while
Then you can use them and you often fool them
Into believing whatever you desire

So I'll keep moving through the night
The hunter and the hunted
On the desig, the designated flights
And I'll keep moving through the night
The hunter and the hunted
On the desig, the designated flights

And for mile after mile you'll never see me tire
You'll never see me slow down for a while
'Cause I am the fox, like it or not

I'm always gonna be there running over the rock
Yes, I am the fox, a fascinating cross
Of sharp as a whip and tough as an ox
Yes, I am the fox

So we keep darting through the holes
As the hunter and the fox
Run the gauntlet's savage road

And I'll keep moving through the night
The hunter and the hunted
On the desig, the designated flights

The designated flights
