“Wolves” reflects one of those rare moments where the words flowed out of [Scott Hirsch] in a very short amount of time. Intentionally placed in the eight position [on the album], the track offers a much-needed reprieve from the darkness that subconsciously spilled over into the album from the artist’s experience grappling with the incomprehensible reality [of the pandemic] stewing outside his studio window.
“Lyrically,” he says, “it’s talking about if you’re gonna fall, you’ve got to fall up—make your mistakes count in a way that’s helpful for you.”
