Off through the new day's mist I run
Out from the new day's mist I have come
I hunt, therefore I am
Harvest the land
Taking of the fallen lamb

Off through the new day's mist I run
Out from the new day's mist I have come
We shift, pulsing with the Earth
Company we keep
Roaming the land while you sleep

(Shape shift) Nose to the wind
(Shape shift) Feeling I've been
(Move swift) All senses clean
(Earth's gift) (Back to the meaning) Back to the meaning of life

Bright is the moon high in starlight
Chill is the air cold as steel tonight
We shift, call of the wild
Fear in your eyes
It's better than you realized

(Shape shift) Nose to the wind
(Shape shift) Feeling I've been
(Move swift) All senses clean
(Earth's gift) (Back to the meaning) Back to the meaning of life

I feel a change back to a better day
(Shape shift) Hair stands on the back of my neck
(Shape shift) In wildness is the preservation of the world
So seek the wolf and not man
(Shape shift) Nose to the wind
(Shape shift) Feeling I have been
(Move swift) All senses clean
(Earth's gift) (Back to the meaning) Back to the meaning of wolf and man

    At first I thought this song was about werewolves but then I listened to it closely and discovered this is actually about how some people in the world are predators and some people in this world are prey and that the fittest survive and the weak will die. (that's what I believe anyway)
