Listen to Six WeeksSix Weeks How does the description relate to Miss Peregrine’s? Slow, slow me down, Her blood, on my bones. Let go, lay to rest. We fall, we fall, we fall, We fall to the ground. Sleep, sleep all night While the young, they wait alone. So get up, shake the rust. We crawl, we crawl, we crawl, We crawl on the ground. Alone, I fight these animals. Alone, until I get home. A wolf, wolf and I, We share the same cold meal. I float on, float on down. We ride, we ride, we ride We ride it all out. We ride, we ride, we ride We ride it all Ride, we ride, we ride We ride it all Ride, we ride, we ride We ride it all out.
