"Wolf Party" as written by and Cody Votolato Whitney Johnny....
Wolf mechanics.
Those wolf mechanics.

Today you beat the fortune teller
to death with your bare hands.
Was it his smirk laugh
or the ostrich feather taped to his purple hat?
He read the lines on your palm,
chanting a creole song,
"It is soon you will die, and angels don't take bribes."
Don't linger on the skylgight you smashed between his eyes.
Just run into the alley
and tell jokes to the bricks and rats.
Because one man's murder scene is another's champagne party.
One man's butchered spine is a soldier's war decoration.

Those wolf mechanics flare up again
as you make your way back to the financial district.
The subway is a numb field.
Every dazed boy and girl makes you lick your lips.
The girl with the accordion, chewing grass like a lamb,
she hands you the juicy eye and then she laughs at your pathetic tie.

But don't linger on the grin you gouged in her throat.
Just take the subway home.
But the wife and kids twinkle like stuffed dogs.
You're like the stormy ocean now,
collecting death like driftwood.

But one man's suicide is a credit company's bride.
One man's poisoned mind is a pharmaceutical gold mine.
You bring your kill from the savannah
and bake it in the sun.
The heat warps it's flesh and you see the face of God in the tarry mess.
Those wolf mechanics banging.
Those wold mechanics crashing.

    General CommentI think he found a pleasure in killing--It gave him this sense of power..
    Each time it was a way to reflame his ego.
    The fortune teller tells him he will die; and cannot escape it. So he kills him.
    The girl looks at him weird--and laughs at him. So he kills her.
    It just became this buildup of murders.
    "You're like the stormy ocean now! Collecting death like driftwood!"
    And "You bring your kill, from the savannah and bake it in the sun.
    But the heat warps it's flesh, you see the face of god in the tarry mess"
    His enjoyment--His step back up towards being the man he wants to be.

    Not to mention a Wolf is viewed as a murderous predator.

    General Commentalso i think its talking about how companies hope for people to die because they feed off of it and get richer.

    "One man's suicide,
    is a credit company's bride.
    One man's poisoned mind,
    is a pharmaceutical goldmine"
    ^obvious: shows how those kind of companies benefit from death


    Because one man's murder scene,
    is another champagne party.
    One man's severed spine,
    is a soldier's war decoration.
    ^showing how cops get paid and keep there job from the work that comes from a murder and also how a soldier benefits from the kills me makes.

    i dont know

    General Comment"Just take the subway home.
    But, the wife and kids twinkle like stuffed dogs."

    that twinkling part makes me think of a film, The Red Dragon because the killer used to put mirrors in his victims eyes in order to simulate an audience. anyways, its wonderfully fucked up song.

    General CommentTo me, its about that sort of rage that lives inside everyone. It works like mechanics, once its triggered it completely crashes into this mass of anger and violence and stuff. Wolves are animals that work on that instinct & need for power. The song seems to be about that rage, and how people often feed off it. Like when a man kills someone in a savage way, he gets psychological help which costs money; and lots of it. So its just about how one persons destructive acts can be another persons gain.

    General CommentI agree w/ gunplusgun.
    The "wolf mechanics" are the instincts for
    rage, hate, and malice inside all of us.

    General CommentI have to agree with xxblackoctoberxx,
    The lines hes quoted change the whole meaning of the song.
    Otherwise I'd also think its about someone who starts killing people and keeps going.
