Wolf Am I! (And Shadow)

Share

Tonight I’m finally seeing one of my favorite bands, mewithoutyou, live in NYC. So, to honor that, here is one of my favorite songs by them – Wolf Am I! (And Shadow).

mewithoutyou never ceases to amaze me with their amazingly complex lyrics. Generally blending a mixture of Biblical themes and stories, Sufi philosophy, and a sense of isolation, the songs strike me more as poetry set to music than simply lyrics – which makes sense, given how the band lists Rumi as a major influence upon themselves.
