Motorhead - In The Year Of The Wolf lyrics

In the year of the wolf all the world smelled good
In the snow and the ice all the rest was blood
In the time of the tribes we took a thousand lives
When I ran with the wolves and the hunting was good

See me now, I was another
Not like me, when the wolves were brothers
See me now, you cannot know
The kind of food that made me grow

It was the wolf in me
Body and soul on fire
In the cold, full moon
Blood red desire
It was the wolf in me
You know it felt so true
The night I ran with the wolves
Tonight I come for you

In the year of the wolf how could you ever know?
There in the forest I had teeth to show
In a different time, when the world was mine
When I ran as a wolf and the sun burned low

See me now, I was another
Mean and vicious, fast and clever
See me now, you would not dream
The food I ate, the food that screamed

It was the wolf in me
And all my soul was fire
By the cold, dull moon
Blood red desire
It was the wolf in me
I howled the cold night through
The year I ran as a wolf
Tonight the food is you

In the year of the wolf all the tribe ran mad
On the frozen lake and I felt so glad
With tooth and claw, all your blood and more
When I ran with the wolves and the hunt turned bad

See me now, this is not me
Not like the one I used to be
See me now, you would not guess
A different heart raving in my chest

It was the wolf in me
When the world was cold
It was the life I lived
In the dark world below
It was the wolf in me
Crying and howling too
I was crying for the hunt
But I was hunting for you
