"Someones in the Wolf" as written by and Josh/castillo Homme....
Once you're lost in twillights's blue
You don't find your way, the way finds you...

Tempt the fates, beware the smile
It hides all the teeth, my dear,
What's behind them...

So glad you could stay
Forever

He steps between the trees, a crooked man
There's blood on the blade
Don't take his hand

You warm by the firelight, in twilight's blue
Shadows creep & dance the walls
He's creeping too..

So glad you could stay
Forever

    General CommentI think this song is about the fairy tale Little Red Riding Hood. I know that sounds weird but this is also quite a weird song. Lines like "It hides all the teeth, my dear"
    or "He steps between the trees, a crooked man
    There's blood on the blade
    Don't take his hand"
    definitely remind me of the fairy tale. It could also about some psycho killing little children......

    General Commentgoddammit its fuckin obvious. fuckin 3 different people have said it but always with a "might" thrown in. ITS NOT A FUCKING SUBTLE SONG. It's called "someone's in the wolf". hmmmmm... the wolf ate someone i.e. little red riding hood. In interviews, Homme mentione reading a lot of brother grimm, etc. wihle working on the album. This brilliant twisted ass song is what comes out of it.
    The song's themes are both homicidal and faux friendly with the smile, the offered hand, "my dear". "my what big teeth you have"

    hope that spelled it the fuck out.

    " Once you're lost
    in twillights's blue
    You don't find your way,
    the way finds you... "

    General CommentI like Hogan's interpretation that it's about sexual predators preying on innocent girls/virginal girls. The song definitely feels very charged with sexual energy. I'm guessing the person involved uses innocent/virgin girls and in a way keeps their innocence with him forever. The big strong heroic woodsman character and the wolf are equated to the same person.

    General CommentSomeone is getting eaten in this song. From 5:19 on, there are sounds of someone sharpening a knife or something.

    General Commentwow you can hear knives...that is freaky. I hear like an uncorking sound then something being poured too. I think we're all in the wolf. Homme sings us his Lullabies to paralyze the beast so he can cut us out into the real world.

    General CommentDefinitely my favourite song on Lullabies. Just can't stop listening to it.

    Don't know what this song means, but I like how the lyrics have an almost comical touch to them. The gothic-ness is so OTT (reminds me of We Suck Young Blood by Radiohead).

    General CommentI agree with the fairy tale thing. Like a fairy tell gone bad! I saw queens in early April and they opened up with this song. It was really awesome and they kicked ass.

    General Comment"Gone bad" is not the right expression I think european fairy tales are generally not nice. Sometime very cruel and even sick.
    For those who don't Little Red Riding Hood:
    Its about a girl walking through dark woods to visit her grandma. As she arrives she realies that the wolf, whos of course the evil guy had eaten her grandma and is now living in the house. He eats the girl aswell. Then the girl calls an hunter cuts open the stomach of the wolf and gets the girl and her grandma out. And if thats not enough gore: The hunter placesm some stones in the open stomach of the wolf (sic!) and puts him in a well where he drowns (sic!!!).
    This is the story i think this is based. It's a german fairy tale. If you dont believe me, read it somewhere!!
