Songs: Wolf by Iced Earth

Tonight, for a change, let's take a look at one of many werewolf-themed songs that are out there. Coming from the 2001 album Horror Show by the American heavy metal band Iced Earth, we can see some influence from classical werewolf movies such as the 1940s version of The Wolfman. Below are the full lyrics to the song and a YouTube link to the song itself. More to come in the future, so enjoy!

Wolf
Iced Earth


Innocence tainted by pure lunacy
Cursed by the slash of a shapeshifting beast
Oh, no -- this can't be
Demonic infection, a doomed changeling
His future concealed as he begs to be told
A kiss from the Gypsy, he'll never grow old
Oh, no -- this can't be
Demonic infection, a doomed changeling

Even a man who's pure and says his prayers by night
He won't hear your prayers (May become a wolf)
When the wolfsbane blooms
And the autumn moon is bright
There's a full moon tonight (May become a wolf)

He who is bitten by a wolf and lives
Possession soon follows, no use to resist
Oh, no -- this can't be
Cursed by the moonlight, a doomed changeling
The madness and turmoil that swells up inside
To truly find peace is to truly die
Oh, no -- this can't be
Cursed by the moonlight, a doomed changeling

Even a man who's pure and says his prayers by night
He won't hear your prayers (May become a wolf)
When the wolfsbane blooms
And the autumn moon is bright
There's a full moon tonight (May become a wolf)

Now comes the rampage, a killing spree
Hunting his loved ones comes instinctively
Oh, no -- it's maddening
A shapeshifting demon of pure lunacy
A shot from the darkness tears through its flesh
A bullet of silver lays it to rest
Oh, no -- it's maddening
An innocent victim found his peace

Even a man who's pure and says his prayers by night
He won't hear your prayers (May become a wolf)
When the wolfsbane blooms
And the autumn moon is bright
There's a full moon tonight (May become a wolf)
