When I was a boy I watched the wolves
When I was a boy I watched wolfpack
Run, I watched the wolves
till the mornin' sun
And as I grew I soon found the wolfpack grow on me
Laser bright feel the lunar light comin down on me
Moonlight, leave me be, comin down on me
We Roll and we go thru the mountain snow
Wolfpack silver, down to the water
Timber line leader gonna find you
Getcha goin down to the nighttime

No eyes shine on the mind protected
No light shines on the fang neglected
Run with the wolfpack

When I was young and low out here in San Francisco
I could rely on the fire of my friends, now I can
Carry a few and I do when I can we get
By however we can

Me and my friends we roll thru the hills in the nighttime
Me and my friends run into the mornin sunshine

I suppose you could yell at your dog
He'd be barking his face right back
I imagine you calling yourself big fang
Observing you run with the pack

Wolfpack werewolf, gleaming on the hillside
She-wolf dripping come here and find me
Down by the cool clear waterside
Down by the nighttime

Bow to the moon / lean to the morning sun
Feel how clean / when the night when your nite is done

Run with the wolfpack
Get down be bright go back, run with the wolfpack
We have the mountains, we have the town now
Battle cruiser, two tone silver loser
Run with the wolfpack
Run with the wolfpack
Run with the wolfpack

    My OpinionOne of Kantner's best. The wolfpack are the bohemian outsiders of society. They band together as a tribe and live on the fringes. The myth of the werewolf is used to show how one can be transformed into this cultural anomaly, sometimes overnight, revealing the hidden animalistic traits beneath our consciousness.
