With my iPhone on shuffle this afternoon I’ve once again drawn inspiration from music. As always I wish you all the best of luck and I hope you enjoy the puzzle.

Guitar starts playing: Bm, Bm, G, F# (1,2,r,4,5,6,7,8)[4:4]{~160bpm)

Hahahaha this is about you...

Beware, beware, be skeptical,

A herring so true, it’s cryptical.

It feels so natural,

But a wolf in sheep’s clothing is more than a warning.

Hey you, hey you, reading all these lines;

Always, looking back, taking up your time.

Used, no not broken, not just yet,

Never giving up, ‘cause your mind is turning quick.

To tell me...

  • What song is this puzzle about?
  • What song inspired the pattern used?


These songs contain mature language so listen at your own risk. You’ve been warned. :)

  • $\begingroup$ Is "1,2,r,4" intentional? $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @Stiv yes, the r states a rest. $\endgroup$ Commented Aug 31, 2019 at 11:28

What song inspired the pattern used? Likely

"Wolf in Sheep's Clothing" (artist: Set it Off).

Nightcore version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jvl2e6X6PA4

Lyrics from the song that match: (source: lyricfind)

Ha ha ha, this is about you
Beware, beware, be skeptical
Of their smiles, their smiles of plated gold
Deceit so natural
But a wolf in sheep's clothing is more than a warning

Bla-bla-black sheep, have you any soul?
No sir, by the way, what the hell are morals
Jack, be nimble, Jack, be quick
Jill's a little whore and her alibis are dirty tricks

So could you...


The acrostic of the lyrics say


So perhaps it's

Haunted by Taylor Swift?

Rhythm seems alike, but I can't find mature language tho
