Beware The Dog
The Griswolds Lyrics


We used to go
Where no one dared to go
And now you chase the dragon on your own
She used to suck the fun out of me

Beware the dog who's selling songs about defeat
Begging for love but you're old enough to know better than you know
You hate so much that you're better off alone

She used to suck the life out of me
We used to joke and it felt like home
But now it's all just hazy
We used to walk where the wild things grow
But now you're fucking crazy
We used to go where the cool kids go
But now you're just too lazy
We used to joke and it felt like home
But now you're fucking crazy
Crazy, crazy, crazy
(Wooh!)

Beware the ghost who lives on Salamander Road
Trapped in a cloud of smoke
It's old enough to know better than it knows
Hate so much you better leave that prick alone

She used to suck the life out of me
We used to joke and it felt like home
But now it's all just hazy
We used to walk where the wild things grow
But now you're fucking crazy
We used to go where the cool kids go
But now you're just too lazy
We used to joke and it felt like home
But now you're fucking crazy
Crazy, crazy, crazy
(Wooh!)

She used to suck the fun out of me
We used to joke and it felt like home
But now you're fucking crazy
We used to walk where the wild things grow
But now it's all just hazy
We used to go where the cool kids go
But now you're just too lazy
We used to joke and it felt like home
But now you're fucking crazy
Crazy, crazy, crazy
(Wooh!)

This song was written about losing someone you are very close to due to drugs.  The dog in this instance is the drugs, or better yet, the person the drug addict becomes when they are high.  The metaphor of the video is that little red riding hood is their friend when they are sober.  The big bad wolf is the same person showing signs of drug abuse.  You can see throughout the video how the wolf is tearing people apart (tearing apart relationships).  Little red is orchestrating all this.  In this story, red and the wolf become one at the end.  That's when she stopped being a friend and a full monster.

Actually, on Spotify there is a version of this song (and the entire album) where they explain what's this song is about, about drugs, a close friend of them, basically the explanation given in this comment so, yeah, you guessed it! You sir, are smart.

@danielvandam the first verse of the song idiot : 
We used to go
Where no one dared to go
And now you chase the dragon on your own
She used to suck the fun out of me

@danielvandam
They've actually said it in interviews before - "Vocalist Chris Whitehall explained the meaning of the song a bit further, saying "this is the first song Dan and I ever wrote together. It’s about losing someone we were really close with to heavy drug use. ‘Beware the Dog’ is about that journey – the good and the bad times.""
