You ever had a day like I had today,
You look around and every face you see
And you peer into those hallowed institutions.
But the bite goes wide.
I see them running with their tails hanging low
The prophets and the wise men and the hard politicos
Let the breath from the mountain still the pain,
Dogs in the midwinter.

The weaker of the herd can feel their eyes and hear them howl like dogs in the midwinter.
Cold doggies in the manger turn last suppers into feasts.
Dogs in the midwinter.
You ever had a day like I had today:
You look around and every face you see
And you peer into those hallowed institutions.
But the bite goes wide.
We're all running on a tightrope, wearing slippers in the snow
The ice is ever thinner.
And it's hard to find true equilibrium
Dogs in the midwinter.
